Is it possible hearing the warning sounds via a headset in a Samsung S2 tablet? I have set in the tablet as necessary to listen the sound coming from other apps that allow me to listen the audio, but I can not do the same with SkyDemon. The alert sounds continue to come from the tablet's speakers...
Is it possible or it is a feature not provided by SkyDemon?
‌Thanks a lot in advance.

You need to have a Bluetooth enabled headset paired with your tablet and then you will receive SD audio alerts in your headset.

You need to have a Bluetooth enabled headset paired with your tablet and then you will receive SD audio alerts in your headset.

It doesn't work this way with my Bose A20 headset (bought in 2015). My Bose via Bluetooth only connects to the phone app. On my Bose A20 I have to use a 3.5mm jack audio cable to connect the iPad audio out (headphone socket) to the Aux input on the Bose A20 headset controller.

‌I have tried this set-up at my desk, and it works (with all audio sources on the iPad, not limited to SkyDemon). However, I am not sure if the volume (SPL) can be set high enough to be audible during flight. I will test this and report hack here. The volume is controlled only by the volume settings on the iPad, not by the volume controls on the headset control module (and of course not by the Bluetooth volume control on the headset control module, nor by the aircraft intercom settings).

‌Interestingly, the headset has to be ON for the aux source to be audible (whereas the mike and the intercom can be used even if the headset is OFF, e.g., in case of flat battery, of course without ANR feature).

‌‌It is indeed a cool feature to get the dynamic SD airspace warning into the headset. And it will be even more critical with the upcoming ADS-B based traffic avoidance functionality. ‌I understand that the current Mk2 version of the Bose A20 headset allows to connect to a second audio source via Bluetooth. Maybe some members can share their experience. I also understand that I can upgrade to the Mk2 Bose A20 simply by replacing the headset control module with the latest version - the headset itself is unchanged.

‌I works perfectly alright, even in flight. Just one more cable to take care of Smile . The volume is just fine with the "Ringer and Alerts" volume set to max (in Settings/Sounds). I recommend to tick "Change with Buttons" so you can use the hardware volume buttons to easily adjust the volume of the SkyDemon alerts if required.

If your Bose A20 is the old version it won't support the coupling via the BT stack. Just keep that in mind and when the headset goes to maintenance, spend the money to get the new version of the cable accessory. It is just two screws ... and about 1/4 AMU, but it is worth it!
