Bluetooth & Two Way Radios

When I think of bluetooth I immediately think of a world without wires. Bluetooth connectivity was an awesome creation. We see bluetooth being used with our cellular phones, speakers, appliances, and a host of other applications. Two way radio users looking for bluetooth to emiminate wired accessories need to be aware of the different bluetooth offerings and whether they're truely bluetooth.

Most manufacturers offer bluetooth accessories with voice capabilities for its Professional Tier two way radios but leave out their Commerical, Business, and Consumer Channels. You'll find the Motorola T800 is bluetooth capable consumer walkie talkie allowing it to connect to an App but it is not capable of transmitting or receiving voice. In fact, You'll find very few two way radios under $400 with bluetooth functionality for voice built in.

The primary reason manufacturers leave bluetooth out is because it complicates the product, adds to its cost, and Manufacturers tend to not replace models very often. Where bluetooth tends to be universal with consumer electronics, two way radio manufacturers prefer to make their bluetooth protocol proprietary to their brand. By doing so, Manufacturers are able to control quality but the trade off is Users prefer universal accessories. Hopefully as new two way radios come to the market, we'll see more models with bluetooth. In the meantime, consider using a Prymeblu Bluetooth Pod.
