Bose Sleep Location Access

Hi there.
Could you explain why it's mandatory to have GPS running to use the sleep buds (and Bose connect by the way)?
It's not the best approach, especially when using in an airplane where you are supposed to be on airplane mode.

Thanks for this amazing product anyway!

Hi Pascalmic,

 

Thanks for the question.  The Sleepbuds use a version of Bluetooth called BLE, which requires location access to operate.  This is not a requirement from us directly, but from the protocol itself.  

 

If you have any more questions, please let us know.

 

Best Regards,

Re: Bose Sleep Location Access

Hello there and thanks for the quick reply.

Understood...  that's a bit sad but i guess you had your reasons to choose this version.

I think I saw somewhere that you are working on new sounds and also a let app-dependent version soon. (is that right ?)

Keep up the good work

Re: Bose Sleep Location Access

@Pascalmic Thank you. The new sounds are not out yet but coming soon, and we're exploring a type of a "phone-free" mode because you may want to keep your phone outside of your bedroom while you sleep. 

 

Take care,
