Phonak ComPilot II
Now that you have your new Phonak hearing aids, the Phonak ComPilot II will help you get the most out of them. Its main purpose is to connect your hearing aids to a variety of devices via Bluetooth; your cell phone, iPod, etc. It can also be used as a remote control for your hearing aids. This product is compatible with Phonak Audeo and several of the Phonak Venture series hearing aids. If you have any questions about whether this product will work with your particular Phonak hearing aids, we at Hears to U will be able to help.
Since the ComPilot II has a rechargeable battery, the first you will need to do is charge the battery. The initial charge should be at least three hours. It can even be left to charge overnight; that will not harm the device in any way. The power indicator is red while charging and will turn green when the charging is complete. The battery on your new ComPilot II will not work to full performance until three full charge and discharge cycles have been completed. A full charge can give you up to 24 hours of streaming time.
Once charged you will need to pair your ComPilot II to each bluetooth device. You will only need to do this once; after than the ComPilotII will be able to recognize the device. Put the ComPilot and the phone next to each other. Go to settings on your cell phone and make sure that Bluetooth is enabled. Look for nearby devices. Turn on your ComPilot II. Press and hold connect and volume up buttons at the same time for two seconds. The audio indicator will blink blue. Connect your hearing aids. After your aids are paired properly, the audio indicator will stop blinking blue, and your phone says the ComPilot is connected.
Now you can make and receive calls. You will hear the calls directly into your hearing aids. No need to go to a quieter room or use the speaker function on the phone to be able to hear what is said. Now you can hear family, friends, grandchildren, even your favorite telemarketer, directly into your ears. You won’t miss a thing.
Now, what if you want to hear music. If you have an iPod, insert the audio cable into the ComPilotII and insert the other end into the headphone jack on your player. Turn it on and you will automatically hear directly into your aids. You can also stream music or podcasts from your smart cell phone.
If it is set up as such, the ComPilot II can act as a remote control for your hearing aids. You can adjust the volume and change programs. Just be sure we at Hears to U know you are interested in this function, so we can be sure to set it up for you.
Phonak has many youtube videos and step-by-step instructions on their website. You new ComPilotII also comes with a one-year limited warranty. Enjoy your new hearing adventures!
