6 thoughts on “Gab n Go Harness with Bluetooth Speaker”
I won a gab-n-go harness with blue tooth speaker for my daughter! First let me say we LOVE it! But recently the iPod has stopped recognizing the speaker. I have checked to see that the blue tooth setting on the iPod is on and have even tried 2 different phones and it appears the speaker is not working. I have fully charged the speaker! Is there anything else I can do? The iPod does have a speaker and is working but it was much better with the speaker?
That is great that you are using the gab-n-go with your daughter. My suggestion would be to contact Kristen Nicolazzo Lazuka, developer of Safe n Sound. The email address is email@example.com We hope this is helpful to you!
I sent you an email. We have had pretty good luck with the speakers so far. Occasionally there is a speaker (like any electronic device) that has some sort of issue. We, of course want to be sure your your Gab n Go is in perfect working order. I look forward to getting your email reply so we can be sure that happens :)Thanks! ~Kristen
What Bluetooth speaker do you recommend?
I received this idea from my ABA therapist for my son. The original post online advertised the harness with Bluetooth speaker for $45. I went to your site and it looks like your selling the harness alone for $75 ?!? Is that true? $75 for a set of straps and adhesive.
I was looking forward to giving my son an easy way to communicate on the go since he is nonverbal.
Hi Doug, Thank you for contacting BridgingApps. We originally posted this article in 2012. Thank you for bringing the device price increase to our attention. We have updated the blogpost. A cheaper alternative is to purchase a clip on speaker that is bluetooth compatible and attach to your son\’s clothing or backpack. I hope that helps. Let us know if you have any other questions.
