You know that scary and stressful feeling you get when you misplace your keys or wallet? As some of you may know, that feeling gets worse when the items missing are your hearing aids. Hearing aids are an investment, and it is terrifying to lose something that's often a big part of your day-to-day life.
With Halo iQ, Halo 2 and Halo hearing aids, the “Find My Hearing Aids” function within the TruLink mobile app can make things a little easier. This function can help you find recently misplaced devices by using a map to show you where they were last detected or a search signal to help you recover lost devices when you believe they are nearby.
