MiraCheck works fine with my iPad and one Lightspeed PFX headset connected by bluetooth. But like others, I would like to have both Mira’s voice and my responses heard on other headsets, particularly the co-pilot’s headset for training purposes. One work-around is to use a pair of wired (or bluetooth) earbuds, with the pilot and co-pilot each having just one earbud and wearing the aircraft headsets over the earbuds. Most earbuds are small enough that there is no problem wearing the aircraft headset over the earbuds. The PIC should have the earbud with the microphone if only one earbud has a mic. Klutzy, I know, but it works. One advantage of this option is that if you have an electrical failure, at least you still have your MiraCheck available for Emergency use, which would not be the case if you’re connected through the panel with a Garmin GMA35C or some other method.
I have also tried connecting the iPad to the Garmin GMA35C. Unfortunately, my experience was not the same as Imamane’s. In my airplane, when the iPad is BT connected to the GMA35C, MiraCheck works fine when it first loads up, and I can hear Mira’s voice on all headsets. However, when I activate the microphone on MiraCheck (either by setting the “Talk to Mira” switch on or by touching the microphone icon on the checklist page), Mira does not pick up my “Check” responses or any other commands spoken into any of the headset microphones. This is true whether I am using just one or multiple headsets. Further, as soon as I activate the microphone function on MiraCheck, then I can no longer even hear Mira’s voice in any headset! Everything has gone silent.
As a work-around, I can use MiraCheck connected to the Garmin GMA35C if I simply leave the Talk to Mira microphone turned off and manually check each item, either with or without the Big Check Overlay. At least, in this way the co-pilot can hear Mira’s voice and see that I have checked off each item.
