Phonak Marvel - Target software?

#1

I wonder if the new Phonak Marvel HAs will be added to the existing Target programming software or will have its own special software? Given the BT capabilities I also wonder if the marvelous Marvels will connect to the Target software via. Bluetooth or also have a wired connection.

Has anyone knowledge of this?

You need to update Target 5.4 to Target 6.0 using the Target update feature.

Don’t be tripping on Blue Tooth.

I assume the ability to update performance level will require some special authorization?

Are you saying that is done with Target Fitting Software? Oh, I think I recall something about advanced performance level trials were only temporary for a limited time.

On page 2 of the document you linked, it mentions changing performance levels of “Trial hearing aids.” Maybe they have special “Trial aids” for audiologists to let patients try out different levels?

Yes, I see that you can set the trial levels in Target. Theoretically you could (if you are careful not to setup other interfering variables) test the difference between performance levels for (Phonak Audéo M 90, and Phonak Audéo M nn=whatever) for a limited amount of time.

Yes, it appears they do have special Trial Model hearing aids.

Yeah - that option has not yet appeared on my install of Target. I’m on 5.4.2 and Update says that is the latest available. Maybe next month…

Same for me, Sorry I don’t usually program Phonaks.

@Terost said that he downloaded Target 6 but he didn’t say where.

Or maybe he was just talking about downloading the

No one has downloaded Target 6.0 yet. I think maybe Phonak likes playing hide the new stuff.

But why does it matter? No one is self programming Audéo M’s yet, right?

Target 5.4.2 should be sufficient for a while longer.

Yes 5.4.2 says up to date

It’ll properly be like Target 5 where you couldn’t update using the software updater.

If I’m remembering correctly, the aid isn’t available until end of November, so no real need for anybody to have it.

Target version 6 will be out sometime this month. Date is unknown. 5.4.2 is good enough for me.
