Before I spend a grand on a bluetooth headset, I thought I'd ask if anyone has had any experience with this strategy. I am in the beginning of Phase I with my 750 and am trying to determine how to use a voice recorder to document the changes in performance as I change other parameters during flight. The old school method is using paper and pencil to keep notes while doing the flying. It seems to me to be safer if I could figure out how to speak into the mike and record what I need as I fly.
I know that bluetooth headsets can pare to a phone app on my iPhone to make calls. I also know that at home in my favorite easy chair, I can pair my earbuds to my iPhone recorder app and make a recording. But I don't know if an aviation bluetooth headset will pare with the iPhone recorder app to make a recording of my voice that is legible during flight...even if it has noise cancelling.
Has anyone tried this? Your comments/suggestions will greatly be appreciated.
I used this adapter from My Pilot Store for adapting my headset to my GoPro for video and flight recording (with a USB adapter) and for direct to my Android phone or tablet for Audio only. I like wired solutions for some things just to make the set-up easy. Link > Headset Adapter
A recent episode of the Aviation News Talk podcast is all about how to record cockpit audio: https://aviationnewstalk.com/podcast/276-capturing-the-skies-why-an...
I seem to remember bluetooth being mentioned, but I don't recall the details.
Many thanks to John, Matt, and Bob, for all the suggestions to record audio in flight. There were many more options than I ever thought. I'll post my results in the near future.
