7 Ways ReSound LiNX and iPhone Can Make Your Life Easier

You already know that your iPhone® gives you access to more than 1 million apps in the App StoreSM. But did you know that using your ReSound LiNXTM hearing aid with iPhone apps can eliminate some major nuisances from your life?

Baby Monitor – Have you ever gone on vacation and forgot to bring your baby monitor? Or had the grand kids over and Mom forgot to pack the monitor in the diaper bag? If you have ReSound LiNX and an iPhone, just use direct-to-hearing aid streaming to turn your ReSound LiNX into an instant baby monitor.

Alarm Clock – You don’t need to worry about over-sleeping when your iPhone is synced to your hearing aid. You can even choose the type of sound or music you would prefer to wake you up in the morning!

Sleep Time App – If you don’t pop out of bed at the sound of your alarm, try using the Sleep Time app. Sleep Time provides a soothing soundscape to help you nod off and then tracks your sleep cycle throughout the night. When you set the alarm for the morning, it will find your lightest sleep phase within half an hour to make waking up a little easier. The app also comes with an Instant Heart Rate meter to measure your pulse upon awakening. Talk about a relaxing night!

GPS - Punch in your destination and let your iPhone talk you through each step of your route.

Road Radar – No one likes seeing those flashing lights in their rear view mirror. Fortunately there’s Trapster, an app that can help you avoid almost any road hazard. When a user spots a speed trap, they report it by tapping the map as they pass by. Other users are alerted as they approach it, and can confirm the trap’s location by tapping the map as well. The app also alerts users to road hazards including construction zones, flooded roads and more. With ReSound LiNX synced to your iPhone, you’ll hear about a trap before you see those flashing lights.

First Aid – Filmmaker Dan Woolley once used the Pocket First Aid and CPR app to survive an earthquake. He used the app to assist him in treating his wounds. The application also told him to set reminders not to fall asleep so he would not go into shock. If you ever find yourself in a predicament, this app will help you patch yourself right up.

Email Reader – Do you typically stare at your phone as you walk or work out? Hate that you can’t check email while you’re driving? Just ask Siri to read your emails to you. Talk about multitasking!

    Hmmm….Really??? Is it common for people wear their hearing aids at night while sleeping?.

      Hi Nancy,
      I’m not sure about most people. I try to take mine off at night, but I have fallen asleep at night listening to music and the next morning the alarm went off in my hearing aids. It also made me think. If I needed to get up early to do something I could set my alarm clock with my Linx and not wake up my wife when it went off.
