If you use an iPad with ForeFlight, Garmin Pilot, or any navigation software/device with terrain or traffic notifications, you need the CRAZEDpilot BLUETOOTH Headset Interface. Our Bluetooth interface allows you to WIRELESSLY hear "TERRAIN" warnings or "TRAFFIC" notices, right in your headset - without the risk or inconvenience of wires!
This solves a critical safety issue - tablets and phones in the cockpit are exceedingly useful in providing safety information, but AUDIBLE WARNINGS must be heard by the pilot immediately! Cables wrapped around your controls to a yoke-mounted device or across your throttle quadrant are dangerous! Instead, utilize the CRAZEDpilot Bluetooth Interface to wirelessly connect audio direct to the pilot headset**.
Compatible with Foreflight, Garmin Pilot, and any other audio-capable software on your Bluetooth-enabled device including stereo quality music for personal entertainment during flight. Garmin Pilot users will experience audible traffic and terrain warnings when paired with an ADSB-In and/or GPS source. Foreflight provides their customers with runway area alerts, pressure altitude alerts, and traffic warnings when paired with an ADSB-In source and ADSB-Out equipped aircraft. Please contact your preferred software vendor for more specific details on the prerequisites, alerts, and tones available with your chosen product.
* Internal battery runs 4-6 hours between charges
* Easily charge (even during operation) via USB cigarette lighter adapter
* Pairs easily to any Bluetooth capable device
* Use your favorite GPS or Navigation software - no software limitations!
In most modern aircraft, the music will be heard through the individual headset it is connected to rather than through the entire intercom system, yet the intercom system still functions properly and you can continue to talk comfortably to your passengers (or the passengers using their own CRAZEDpilot Music Adapter) - anyone with a CRAZEDpilot Music Adapter Cable can listen to their own choice of soothing music while enroute to your destination.
In older intercom systems, the music may be heard by either just your front or rear passengers (or both) depending on internal intercom circuitry.
For loudest audio possible, make sure your levels are all set right. Turn your phone / audio device volume to max, turn your headset clear UP to max, then turn DOWN your intercom volume until it's comfortable but still audible.
Installation is easy; simply pair the CRAZEDpilot BLUETOOTH Headset Interface to your Bluetooth device, then connect between the aircraft and your headset - this will route all regular audio to the pilot headset IN ADDITION to all audio output from your iPad or bluetooth device using Bluetooth wireless technology.
Make safety a priority and get the CRAZEDpilot Bluetooth Interface today!
** This product is for audio to the headset only, it does not support telephone calls through the headset.

Device works very well for the price as long as you only need to hear what you are listening to. The only down side so far is the recharging port. It's an old version and seems a little touchy. Mine does not charge unless I barely plug in the cord.
Despite following the instructions to turn my (Sennheiser) headset all the way up, voice alerts from Skydemon were still too quiet to hear over the engine, but beeps were fine - so I can always look at the screen when there's an alert. Works well otherwise and extremely simple to use.
Device works as advertised. Downside is, the charging usb header is an outdated old version, meaning a regular usb mini wont fit. They do come with the compatible cable, which just means you need to carry an extra cable.
I have the old Bose head sets and this device works great and saved alot of money. I will be getting 2 more
Using a DC noise cancelling headset in a Mooney 201 with an ipad and foreflight, connecting was easy. Battery life was closer to 2 hours than 4, so I will use a usb cable to keep charged. Biggest problem is that, even with the headset volume at max, bluetooth volume at max, volume of the adapter was too soft to reliably hear foreflight warnings and to hear music from the ipad. I tried everything to maximize volume, but to no avail. Please provide a method for increasing amplification in the unit! (OUR REPLY: This has a lot to do with existing avionics drawing on the amplification, and ambient noise. Works good in most applications though with a small internal battery we must balance lifespan with 'blasting' amplification).
Fortunately, most modern aviation headsets have audio inputs allowing you to route audio alerts directly into them to help get your attention. If you have a headset that offers Bluetooth audio compatibility, like the updated Bose A20, all Lightspeed headsets, or the David Clark Pro-X, you can wirelessly connect it to your iPad. Passengers love this feature for music, but it s valuable for pilots too.
Excellent does what it is supposed to.
Works well. 5 stars would be if it had pauseand other functionality with the phone/tablet. (CRAZEDpilot reply: unfortunately this would double the product price, generally pause/play functionality can be handled easily by the software of choice).
No volume controls. BT volume is very low. No way to immediately pause BT so that you can concentrate on ATC.
REPLY: Correct, the volume must be adjusted at the device level - this is a bluetooth audio interface not a bluetooth controller, so adjust your volume within your audio source, consider turning up your headset volume, and turn down your intercom system as this is a common misconfiguration for users. Thanks! -Dick, CRAZEDpilot.com Engineering
