Pairing with your phone and/or music device
What is pairing?
Bluetooth devices need to be “paired” with each other beforehand. Once Bluetooth devices are paired, there is usually no need for pairing again.
Before you can use BluLink to make a call or listen to music, it must be paired with your Bluetooth enabled phone and/or music device.
Note: Once you have paired one device (i.e. cell phone) BluLink must be turned off and back on before another device (i.e. iPod, music player) can be
paired.
Note: Passcode of this unit is fixed at “0000”, “1234”, or “8888”
Passcode may be called “Passkey”, “PIN code”, “PIN number”or
“Password”
To pair BluLink with your phone or music player
1. On your phone, be sure the Bluetooth feature is turned on. For more
information, consult your phone’s user guide.
Reconnecting previously paired devices to BluLink

consult the user guide that came with it.
Once a device has been paired with BluLink, you can reestablish a

until the blue light begins to flash.
3. With BluLink turned on, enter “pairing in process” mode by pressing
and holding button
until Bluetooth indicator light begins
flashing Red/Blue.

Introduction
Clarity Aloft has partnered with Pilot-USA to develop an Aviation Headset that combines the outstanding clarity and noise suppression of the Clarity
Aloft Aviation Headset with the industry leading features of the Pilot-USA Bluetooth cell phone and music adapter.
The Clarity Aloft Link (BluLink Unit) reduces the need for extra cables and adapters, creating a safer and more hassle free cockpit. The Clarity Aloft
Headset equipped with BluLink will wirelessly connect to your cell phone and music player. BluLink even allows you to wirelessly control the music.
Just use the buttons on the device to select songs on your Bluetooth music streaming cell phone or portable music player such as an iPod, iPad or
MP3 player equipped with Bluetooth connectivity.
Introduction
BluLink allows you to have a wearable link to your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone with no cords or wires to get in the way. Your Clarity Aloft
headset, equipped with BluLink, works like stereo headphones allowing you to enjoy your digital music wirelessly. Just use a mobile phone with
Bluetooth capability or add a Bluetooth-enabled adaptor to your portable music player. Make sure the Bluetooth enabled phone or adapter has
Bluetooth A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) and Bluetooth AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile). These Bluetooth technologies
allow the device to work with BluLink.
