Hytera and Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a proprietary technology. Items using the Bluetooth name and symbol are guaranteed to inter operate. Sometimes wireless headsets are called ‘Bluetooth’ when they are not genuine Bluetooth. On occasion these items will work with genuine Bluetooth branded products although often unreliably.
As of June 2020 the only Hytera product that uses genuine Bluetooth is the PD985. Other wireless Hytera earpiece products are sometimes wrongly listed as ‘Bluetooth’. We have tested these and as of the date above we have found fairly poor compatibility with non-Hytera devices and don't consider them reliable enough for any applications.
RadioTransmit (PTT) and Bluetooth
Unlike phone Bluetooth devices, radio devices also need the PTT (transmit function). This button can be on the radio, on a special earpiece (phone earpieces don't have this function) or as a separate wireless or wired button - Wireless PTT.
