No does not work with u-clear.

Huh? my u-clear can pair leh.

I can only get it to pair with the either zumo OR iphone only.

so i paired the phone to zumo.

then zumo pair with u-clear

but this config got some hiccup for me. if listening to music, then a call comes in, after hanging up, the music will be 1 piece 1 piece

 

PS : there's only 1 model of U-clear around right? haven't been updated with the comms scene for a long while. So pardon me if i didn't get it correct.

My u-clear keeps dropping signal after I upgrade the firmware in my Zumo 660. Even when it's connected listening to music is a pain while riding.

 

I don't pair the iPhone direct to u-clear, pair it with Zumo then I get the best of everything.

 

I changed to the scala g4 now and everything works perfectly at the moment.

 

One thing found out its very distracting to listen to turn by turn instruction from the Zumo especially if contains the traffic poi speed a bit only the warning tone will come out.

Thank u Scuddy & Advrider

 

Garmin Zumo 660 & U Clear

I am going to try out pairing in different ways by using my friend's 660. Looks like first, pairing Zumo 660 to U Clear & then pairing Zumo to iPhone.

 

I read somewhere that Bluetooth devices to be paired must have the same pin code + some other specifications in order to be compatible. Is the Zumo's code 0000 like the U Clear's code?

 

Garmin Montana 650 & U Clear

Montana does not have the Bluetooth. Can I resolve it by making Montana a bluetooth device by plugging to its audio port with a bluetooth audio transmitter dongle (that has a 3.5mm pin), then pair it with U Clear? Will that work? Has anyone done it?

If you really need the bluetooth function go for the Zumo. I don't need the Bluetooth that's why I change to the Montana.

Thanks alot for the information you shared.

 

I will install a 12V cig socket then as it is more universal and could be used to power other devices, quite worried about rain water seeping into the electrical connections (male and female parts of the 12V cig lighter) and shorting when i ride in the rain.

 

Any experience with this?

 

i am using waterproof 12v socket.. so far no problem, you can search in CMO, garage sale, or even ebay for this item

If you read the disclaimer on such power sockets, it states that it is only water-proof when not in used :)

 

Nevertheless, I have been using the exact model for many years on different bikes, there is very little risk of rain short-circuiting if the socket is positioned in a sheltered location, such as behind a wind-screen. To further reduce this risk, it is recommended to waterproof the plug (ie, the part that goes into the socket), or don't use it when it is raining heavily.

If you really need the bluetooth function go for the Zumo. I don't need the Bluetooth that's why I change to the Montana.

 

This is my current position and thoughts:

 

Most probably, it's either Montana or 660 for me.

 

In the meantime, I like to figure out 660's compatibility wif U Clear Bluetooth Headset Communicator as I already bought 2 sets.

 

If I buy in favour of Montana ( with its advances), I just need to plug in mono earphone into audio out of the Montana.

 

I certainly need to reexamine my self made device I made for my video cam n gps.

 

Thanks, Advrider! I accept Advrider's experience on Ram Mount holding on well as a holder, in addition to my constant fear that my iphone or gps might fly off from the velcro surface, every time I ride. Another thing is my personal fear of the fixed metal squares ( self designed holder) not far from my chest - can that pose as object which can pierce my chest? Ram Mount is jointed.

No does not work with u-clear.

 

Tried this morning: l like to confirm that U Clear BT Headset Communicator is not compatible (cannot pair) with Zumo 660.

 

I note that U Clear's code is 0000. Zumo 660 is 1234.

Thanks for meetup, bro scuddy ! I really appreciate it.

 

I can hear your zumo 660 routing instruction and the media player music playing from U-Clear Headset !!!!

 

The Key is the step or procedure to follow:

 

Must master reset the U-Clear (if it had previously been paired with other BlueTooth devices). Master Reset by pressing all 3 (Answer, Up, Down simutaneously).

Must also disconnect or unpair any BlueTooth Devices from the Zumo 660

 

Next pair the the U-Clear to the Zumo 660:

a) For Pairing, Press the Up & Down together to make it discoverable

b) On Zumo Screen, Search for Bluetooth device U-Clear HBC 100.

c) On the Zumo Screen, Select & Pair the zumo with U-Clear HBC 100

 

After testing the successful connection, u can then proceed to pair and connect your mobile with zumo 660.

After a voice call, the zumo 660 needs to be switched Off, then swithched On for routing instruction to restart.

 

 

Note: No direct pairing of U-Clear with your mobile if you want 2 devices (the Zumo 660 and mobile) to work to co-exist.

 

So, I have to correct myself to say that Zumo 660 is compatible with U-Clear !!!

 

Now, Zumo 660 with BlueTooth can be one of my choice.:cheer:

Thanks once again to bro Scuddy for sharing !

Iphone - zumo then to the U-clear : can

Iphone itself to U-clear : can

zumo itself to U-clear : can

 

but if simultaneously wanna pair both at the same time to u-clear you can't do it. u-clear will only recognize only 1 of the 2. Unless you pair the phone to the zumo then the zumo pairs to the U-clear. becos zumo itself has 2 bluetooth connection. 1 for phone & the other for audio.

 

that was what i found out after fiddling between the 3 items. then i remembered reading somewhere the U-clear can only accept 1 active connection at anytime.

Scuddy, That was very good in making steps clearer - particularly the 1st 3 lines ! But the 4th line must be noted.

 

Thanks once again!
