Lynx Avionics have announced a new Bluetooth audio adapter for their Micro System headsets, backward-compatible with all of their products. It provides Bluetooth wireless connections for up to eight devices, and has a built-in telephone and music interface.
The adapter was made specifically for open-cockpit aircraft like paragliders, hang gliders and motorised versions thereof, so has a waterproof casing and is a large multi-function control button that can be operated with gloves on.
The Bluetooth Audio Adapter is powered from the headsets, or from a radio/power Interface. Once paired with a telephone, all of the main handsfree functions can be controlled from the adapter, including voice dialing, call transfer, call reject and last number redial. It will automatically answer telephone calls after four rings.
When used with music players, all of the music player’s functions can be controlled using the adapter’s multi-function button.
In addition to the Bluetooth feature, there are also two separate hardwired connections for external audio devices.
All incoming audio connections can be isolated at any time using an audio mute switch.
The adapter comes with a belt clip, but it can can be permanently fixed to your cockpit using whatever method you prefer: Velcro, screws, tube clips, cable ties or gaffer tape.
