I’m ready to buy another remote for my Phonak Solana Aids. I had a PilotOne and lost it – and I Really miss it. I went to the Phonak Site, but for the Sonana model, it only shows the PilotOne and MyPilot as remotes. I can get another PilotOne for around $200, but I’m afraid I’ll just loose it again. I want a watch remote (so it will always be on my arm and I won’t have to worry about leaving it everywhere). I’m one of those kind of people who has three cups of coffee every morning (two of them are sitting half-full on other people’s desks while I’m on my third).:o
I quit wearing the PilotOne on my belt because it frequently popped off or slid out of the case and fell to the floor. And I never seem to have a pocket that is not full of change and other stuff that might scratch up the remote. So, I find myself laying it down everywhere I go. When not in use (hardly ever) I keep it in my shirt pocket, but I don’t like that because my phone is in that pocket also. I’ve been without it for over a month, and it’s really missed. And if someone finds it, they probably will not know what it is.
The Phonak Watch Remotes shown on the web site are listed for aids that use the core chip. My Audi was about to order me the watch remote to try out when I showed her it wasn’t listed on the Solana page. So now we do not know if there is a watch remote available that works with the Spice chip in newer Phonak hearing aids. If she had called Phonak right then, she would have been on hold for a while.
I’d love to know more about the watch remotes for the Phonak Solana if anybody has more information.
