Question

What are the connectivity options for the Oticon Medical Ponto 5 Mini?

 

Answer

The Ponto 5 Mini allows you to connect to a wealth of devices. The Ponto 5 Mini can connect directly to Apple products as a Made for iPhone® device, the Oticon ON App can be downloaded to any phone and offer program change, volume change, find my hearing aids, HearingFitness, and more. Direct connection is also made to the Remote Control 3.0 and TV Adapter 3.0 (Note! TV Adapter 2.0 used with Ponto 3 and the streamer is not compatible with Ponto 4). We have classroom sound with EduMic, both direct streaming FM and telecoil. Then we have our three apps. We have the Ponto Care app, the Oticon ON app, and now offering RemoteCare.

They're the same connectivity options that you had with the Ponto 4, which makes it a very seamless transition to these next generation of sound processor. The Ponto 5 can connect directly to Apple products as in made for iPhone device. The Oticon ON App can be downloaded to any phone and offer program changes, volume changes, find my hearing aids, a hearing fitness app, and a lot more. 

In order to connect to Android phones, ConnectClip offers full streaming and phone call capability. 

To connect to the Phone Adapter and USB dongle, the ConnectClip is used as the gateway.
