must be attached to your helmet before using the device.
• Use the enclosed Allen Wrench to loosen the 2 screws of the clamp
(Picture 1). Then slide the back-plate of the clamp between the
internal padding and the external shell of the helmet (Picture 2). In
case the external shell of the helmet is too thick, use the optional
extension pad.
The microphone must be placed in a vertical (not horizontal) position,
in front of your mouth, with the yellow mark towards you. It can also be
slightly adjusted to suit your helmet. Make some tests to fin optimal
position.

Before fastening the screws, make sure to adjust the clamp’s
location to an ideal position, i.e. to the spot where the attached
speaker sits opposite your ear and the microphone is located in
front of your mouth (Picture 3). You may need to re-position the
clamp repeatedly until you identify the ideal spot. The speaker can
be easily placed into position and removed by means of the supplied
velcro layer that attaches to the inner padding of you helmet.

Pairing the mobile phone
The driver unit can be paired to a Bluetooth mobile phone in order to
make/receive phone calls.
Follow the procedure below to pair the driver unit to a Bluetooth mobile
phone:
1) Turn on the phone and activate its Bluetooth function.
2) The distance between the headset and the mobile phone must be
within 10 meters.
3) With the unit turned off, press and hold the CTRL button until the
blue and red LEDs begin alternating rapidly.
4) On your phone, search for Bluetooth devices by following your
phone’s instructions. Usually this is done by selecting the Search or
Discover option in the Bluetooth or Connection menu.
5) After a few seconds of searching, your phone will list the “Midland-BTI”
as a discovered device. Select it and follow your phone’s instructions
to accept pairing.
6) When prompted by your phone, enter 0000 (4 zeros) as your PIN or
passkey.
7) Your phone will confir that pairing has succeeded.
Switching on and off
To turn on the headset, hold the CTRL button down for about 6 seconds
until the blue LED flashe three times and an ascending alert tone is
heard. Then release the button.
To turn off the headset, hold the CTRL button down for about 3 seconds
until the red LED flashe three times and a descending alert tone is
heard.
Pairing process
The pairing process allows the units to identify each other.
Pairing the driver/passenger units for Intercom
This process is not normally neaded because the two devices included
in the same packing are already paired and the Intercom function is
already enabled. The pairing process may be needed in case of units
coming from different packaging.
To pair the units:
• Make sure that both unit are turned ON and within a range of one
meter (you can make this procedure with the units detached from
the helmet’s clamp)
 If pairing is not completed within 2 minutes, the driver unit will return
to stand-by mode (flashin blue every 3 seconds). To pair again,
turn off the driver unit by pressing the CTRL button until the red LED
flashe 3 times and repeat the process as indicated above.
Intercom always on
The intercom function can be activated by voice (Vox) or also manually,
simply short pressing the Control button from the passenger unit.
If the intercom is manually activated, the communication between the
driver and the passenger is always open.
• Shortly press one time the Control button to activate the intercom
by voice (VOX). Two beeps sound will confir it.
• Shortly press again the Control button to activate the intercom
permanently. A single beep sound will confir it.
The Intercom is factory preset in voice activation (VOX) mode. The
manual activation (always on) can be done only from the passenger
unit. If the passenger unit is switched off or the intercom communication is closed by an incoming phone call on the Driver unit, the intercom
activation is switched back to the voice activation mode. To activate
again the permanent mode, shortly press the Control button on the
passenger unit.
Although you may have previously paired your unit to your phone,
each time you turn one of them off, some phones require that you
re-establish the connection. Reconnecting may also be necessary
when your headset and phone have lost the radio signal because the
distance between them has exceeded 10 meters.
After you have turned on your mobile phone, there are several methods
to re-establish the connection:
 In most cases turning on the driver unit reconnects it automatically
to the phone.
• With some mobile phones you need to re-establish the link to
your headset by using your phone’s menu. Please refer to your
mobile phone’s manual for operating instructions.
• Assuming your mobile phone features voice activation, tap the
CTRL button on your BT-INTERCOM. This will activate your
voice dial function on the phone, indicating that the connection is
established.
• Do nothing. Once a call is received, answer by tapping the CTRL
control.
Answering a call when Intercom is active
When the mobile phone rings for incoming call, the Intercom will be
switched to stand-by mode. To answer the phone call, it is sufficien to
pronounce a word or alternatively press the CTRL button.
In case you don’t want to answer, remain silent until the phone stops
ringing.
At the end of the phone call, the Intercom will be automatically
reactivated.
Intercom function
The activation of the Intercom function is very simple: with both units
switched on, the driver or the passenger start talking with the other
party.
To stop using the intercom and return to standby mode (lower current
consumption), stop talking on both sides and the intercom will turn to
standby mode automatically after 15 seconds. When it turns to standby
mode, you will then hear 2 beeps.
The Intercom function uses the AGC technology, that automatically
increases the volume according to the background noise.
Therefore, it may happen that if you try the Midland BT Intercom inside
a silent and close environment, the volume is low but it will increase
while you are on the move on your motorbike!
 On some phones, you will have to wait up to 15 seconds after call
termination before you can return using the intercom again.
To activate the conversation between driver, passenger and
another party
During a phone call, the Intercom is automatically disabled, but
the driver can decided to include the passenger in the phone call
conversation. On the driver unit press shortly the Intercom button to
add the passenger to the conversation.
At the end of the call, this feature is automatically deactivates.
