How does Bluetooth video work with RearVision?

RearVision uses both Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi technologies to stream video to the Pearl App. Note that Bluetooth video will result in a slightly lower resolution image than video over Wi-Fi. Check the following to optimize your RearVision video:

  1. Have you turned on both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on your phone?
  2. Are there other Bluetooth or Wi-Fi devices nearby? These could be creating interference. If the image performance isn’t great, try deactivating any other Bluetooth accessories in your car.
  3. For the best performance with RearVision, your mobile device should be connected to the Pearl Wi-Fi network, if possible. Double-check your phone settings to make sure that you are connected to your RearVision using Wi-Fi.

Note to iPhone® Users: When your iPhone’s Wi-Fi connection is not available (for example, when you are still connected to your home Wi-Fi network or when you have Wi-Fi turned off), RearVision will try to send video over Bluetooth. In this configuration, Bluetooth hands-free kits can block or degrade Bluetooth video performance while on a call. If you experience this, improve video performance by going into your iPhone’s Settings > Wi-Fi, then connect to the Pearl RearVision network listed there.
