Good product and reliable since almost 10 years!

  • By Martin from Montréal, QC, Canada on Wednesday, December 11, 2019
  • Pros: Very usefull. Especcially when using my PilotCP adpater in conjuction with my audio checklist MiraCheck.
  • Review: The product is great. I actually encountered more difficulties with the devices I was trying to connect the Pilot USA BluLink Cell Phone (PilotCP) adpater to. I came to realize we have just to many BT devices around us.

    Often, when using PilotCP adpater, I had to make sure the right audio input/output (I/O) source was selected on my device. More then often, other BT connected devices already connected to my phone or tablet would not let the PilotCP adapter be the first O/I source.

    In my opinion, it had nothing to do with the PilotCP adpater itself. I just needed to force my Android phone or my Ipad to choose the PilotCP adpater as the fisrt I/O source.

    With time, I found the right procedure to priorities my PilotCP adpater to be the I/O source.

    Hope I could help!

Excellent unit for my application

  • By IAN from KTTN on Thursday, September 12, 2019
  • Pros: works great
  • Review: It works great except it seems to be hard to reconnect to the phone after use, for example, if you use it, then come back for the next flight, I sometimes have to re-bind it to the phone. Anyway, the reason I bought it was to use my high end helicopter headset while traveling on commercial flights (the noise canceling in my David clark kicks ass vs any consumer headset). I use the bluetooth interface to listen to music, watch movies, etc. - all while hearing absolutely nothing, no engine noise, no people talking...I love it.

  • Verified Purchase

Works as advertised - volume sufficient but not more

  • By Chris from Boulder CO USA on Sunday, July 15, 2018
  • Pros: worked as advertised out of the box.
  • Review: I use this in a Robinson R22 helicopter with David Clark H10-13H headset and Motorola MotoG 3rd Gen phone. Setup and pairing went smoothly. Sound quality is fine considering the environment. NOTE: muting during radio traffic applies only to music - not phone conversation. Muting of music is complete when phone call occurs, but incomplete with radio traffic (seems about 15-20 dB down - still audible). In this model muting is switched on and off with the phone button (no physical switch) - no way to tell if it's active except by playing some music. According to the mfg. the setting sticks until batteries are changed. Bluetooth requires manual re-connection each time it powers up (why? - my car connects automatically). Volume is adequate but not more. I use it with headphones at max volume and phone at max volume. As others have noted, the cables are long and produce a lot of clutter. The ring indicator for an incoming call is pretty faint - I'll miss it if I'm distracted.

Good Product, sound quality lacking

  • By A Customer from Woodridge IL USA on Friday, July 07, 2017
  • Pros: Easy Use
  • Review: We use Sennheiser good quality NR headsets. The BlueLink works as advertised,easy setup. Sound quality is not what I had hoped for with the money spent.

  • Verified Purchase

This product works as advertised and I'd buy it again.

  • By Cessna 182 Pilot from Corona Airport, California on Monday, April 10, 2017
  • Pros: Works very well with my iPhone 7a, just remember to turn the radio volume down when using it. When the BluLink is off the normal communication, radio and intercom, work perfectly through the BluLink with no distortion.
  • Review: I use it only to contact ATC to pick up my IFR CLEARENCE from non towered airports. The sound is very clear and I haven't had any complaints from the other end. Since I only use the BlueLink on the ground I haven't found it to be combersome, to use, at all. In flight that might be a different story.

It'works only with iphone

    And with iPhone sometimes it is still difficult to answer the phone by pressing the button...

Does what it claims, but it can't spin gold out of straw

  • By East Tex Steve from Carthage TX USA on Friday, December 27, 2013
  • Pros: Does what it says, excellent TX/RX phone sound
  • Review: Mine works great. But, I only use it as a cell phone interface. I fly a late model Cessna 172R, and use the BluLink with a variety of headphones and a Motorola Razr. Everyone who calls me while I'm using it says the quality of sound is great. However, like others have pointed out, cell phone service tends to fade away once you hit 2,500 ft AGL and higher. That's not the fault of the BluLink though. I set my cell phone where it can "look" out of a side window. That seems to help sometimes. Though, I'm usually flying too high to get cell service, it comes in handy because I travel a lot, and I can now call when I reach 2,500 ft on decent and tell my ride I'm X minutes away. I only have two squawks. My phone uses the Google contact list to make phone calls, and when I issue a voice command to "call Joe Smith" it won't just do it unless I respond to a query on the phone screen first. But, I can tell it to "dial xxx-xxx-xxxx" or "redial" and it jumps right to it. And, the odd shape makes it hard to mount or place in the cockpit. All in all, it's worth the bucks to me. Utilizing your headset to talk on the cell phone is the way to go.

  • Pros: Very usefull. Especcially when using my PilotCP adpater in conjuction with my audio checklist MiraCheck.
  • Cons: The adapter is a little big. Consider it was designed 5 if not 10 years ago. It probably does need a design review.
