The fitting flow for MENU hearing aids is the
same whether you are using Compass or the iP5
programmer. A MENU hearing aid that has been
fitted and fine-tuned with the iP5 programmer is
totally compatible with Compass. A MENU hearing aid that has been fitted with Compass is not
totally compatible with the iP5 programmer. If a
MENU hearing aid with program specific fine
tuning is connected to the iP5 programmer, all
programs will be linked to the Master program,
and the program specific fine tuning will be recalculated. The iP5 programmer will always ask if
you want to recalculate the settings according to
the format that the iP5 programmer can handle.

About add-on features and programs
available with the iP5 programmer.
In WIDEX MENU it is possible to add optional features and
programs purchased by the client. The features and programs
available with the iP5 programmer are up to three supplementary listening programs, Audibility Extender, Speech Enhancer,
HD Locator with Speech tracer and SmartSpeak. (Zen is not
available with the iP5 programmer.)

Connect the hearing aid to the iP5 programmer.
The e-PROM used in the programmer should be
version 5.6 or later. Hearing aids can be connected to the right and the left side at the same
time. The iP5 programmer reads and displays
the settings for one instrument at a time. If you
press On R, the programmer reads the data of
the instrument connected to the user’s right ear,
and if you press On L, the programmer reads the
data of the instrument connected to the user’s
left ear.

Connecting

To connect MENU to the iP5 programmer or to
HI-PRO/NOAHlink you need a programming
cable, which is the same for all models, and a
programming adaptor, which is unique for each
model. Fig. 3 shows which adaptor to use for
each model. BTE hearing aids (except for m)
must have a battery inserted and be turned on
during programming, whereas you must remove
the hearing aid battery from the battery drawer
when programming ITE, CIC or IIC hearing aids.
When programming m hearing aids, you must
remove the hearing aid battery and the battery
cover.
