How to Use the PTT Button on an AnyTone AT-D878UV PLUS!

How to Use the PTT Button on an AnyTone AT-D878UV PLUS!

Ron Karger asks, "What is the Bluetooth PTT button? Is it a wristband or who is it worn?" Okay. This is the Bluetooth Push-To-Talk button that comes with your AnyTone 878PLUS. All it does is it's just the button. It Bluetooths to your radio and activates the Push-To-Talk as there's no mic in here. It's just the button. It has a little strap on it. It's not really big enough to be a wrist strap, but you could theoretically attach it to, say, your fingers if you're driving down the road or you're trying to be semi hands-free. Or perhaps, you could put it on a steering wheel or maybe even like a backpack strap or something like that. It's just meant so you could have your radio in a different spot, like say on your hip, and not have to constantly pick it up. You can talk wirelessly to it. So that's what it does. If you'd like to learn more about the AnyTone 878PLUS, please check the link in the description below. Thanks, guys, seven-three.

Thank you for the informations! I have 2 questions: How or when is this remote PTT switched off, so that it will not drain the small internal battery? And how can you open the remote PTT switch device, if the internal battery is damaged? vy73 from Hamburg/Germany, Dietmar, DL4HAO

Thanks to Ed Griffin via the Anytone AT-D878 Facebook group, here are steps to put the BT PTT into “toggle-to-talk” or “hold” mode:

Menu → Bluetooth → BT PTT Pair → PTT Hold → ON | OFF

OFF := Normal PTT Function
ON := Press once to transmit; Press again to receive

This makes operating the radio while riding a motorcycle so much easier :-D
