Pairing the Bluetooth Talon Remote

Pairing a Remote to One Talon

  1. Retract the anchor on the Talon by pressing the Up button.
  2. Once the Talon is fully retracted, press and hold the Up button and the Down button on the Remote at the same time until the Talon Selection LEDs on the Remote begin to scroll. Then release them.
  3. Immediately press and hold the Up button and the Down button simultaneously on the Indicator Panel. The Depth Indication LEDs will begin to flash blue. Once the LEDs are flashing release the buttons on the Indicator Panel. The Talon and Remote will go into Pairing Mode for 20 seconds. If a signal with three fast beeps occurs, the Talon and Remote have successfully paired. If 20 seconds pass while in Pairing Mode and they do not successfully pair, a
    chirp will sound signaling that the Pairing has timed out.
  4. If the Pair is unsuccessful, repeat the process.

Pairing a Remote to Two Talons

  3. Immediately press and hold the Up button and the Down button simultaneously on the Indicator Panel of one Talon. The Depth Indication LEDs will begin to flash blue on both Talons. Once the LEDs are flashing release the buttons on the Indicator Panel. The Talon and Remote will go into Pairing Mode for 20 seconds.
  4. If a tone with three fast beeps occurs, the Talon and Remote have successfully paired. If 20 seconds pass while in Pairing Mode and they do not successfully pair, an error tone will sound signaling that the Pairing has timed out.
