Icom 705 Bluetooth audio

Post by in3aqk »

Hello problably I'm missing something or I've not found it on the documentation.

When I connect pocket rxtx to the android app do you confirm that the audio of the rtx and from the phone mic is not available.
So in this case only the remote control is available with no audio.

Hello Paolo,

What do you mean by "When I connect pocket rxtx to the android app "? Pocket RxTx is an Android app.
Are you connecting from Pocket RxTx directly to the radio? If yes, what radio model and what type of connection? USB or Bluetooth?

Excuse Dan, my fault writing on a cell phone and not re-reading

I mean:

Situation Pocket RXTX connected to the ICOM IC-705 with bluetooth.
The rtx audio output is not playable on the cell phone and vice-versa the mic input of the cell-phone doesn't arrive to the radio.
So I can use the rttx only for controlling the radio but not to transmit and receive using the phone with mic-headeset.
Is this right or it's a wrong configuration of my setup?

Unfortunately IC-705 supports only headsets and CAT over Bluetooth. An Android smartphone cannot work as a headset over Bluetooth, so audio is not available.
Just connect a Bluetooth headset to your IC-705 and use Pocket RxTx for CAT control.

You may try the new Pocket RxTx 4 beta from here:

Thanks Dan, I've not considered the headset solution that is very wise!

I'll try surely your beta and give you a feedback
