    Basically, don't let the limitations of Bluetooth's range bother you. There are ways around it assuming you have wifi where you're smoking.
    I have wifi, beyond that I am clueless.

    I'm hoping that the app will allow you to set notifications if the temp goes above/below a certain temperature. If this is the case, and assuming you have 2 devices (a tablet and a phone) you'll be able to mirror the notifications to a device that isn't directly connected via Bluetooth to the Maverick. This theoretically makes the range limitless. I'm positive that notification mirroring can work on Android phones/tablets. It will also work on a PC using an app called PushBullet. Not sure about iOS.

    Another option is to buy a Chromecast for $35. Plug it into your TV, connect it to wifi, and then mirror the screen of your connected Bluetooth phone/tablet to the TV. No, you won't be able to watch the game and the temp at the same time, but you can always jump back and forth.

    Basically, don't let the limitations of Bluetooth's range bother you. There are ways around it assuming you have wifi where you're smoking.

    I'll be one of the first on the block to run one. I think WiFi has a way to go. It RediCheck gets in that game (wifi) it will be a hit in my opinion. They seem to have a good handle on the bbq/smoker market where other makers seem to fall short.

    With Bluetooth, you only need the ET-735 transmitter and your smartphone/tablet. You don't need a router like you do with WiFi. And no one has questioned what RF band they've been using all along to connect the transmitter and receiver.

    To be honest with you, the idea of replacing the receiver with my tablet (so I can still use my phone for phone things) is pretty appealing. I have 2 ET-732 sets that have always worked flawlessly. I'll bet a shaker of my favorite rub that the delivered ET-735 will perform better than you're expecting.

    But that's just my opinion...and I could be wrong.

    It was originally invented as a wireless replacement for the old RS-232 data cable. Short range, low bandwidth applications. Requires very little power. Doesn't need line of sight. Headphones, speakers, keyboards/mice, and a variety of industrial connections. I have a diabetes blood sugar meter that transmits data to my iPhone via bluetooth. Class 1 bluetooth actually has a maximum range of 300 feet, but who knows what Maverick is using since the device is not on their website yet. I never get that much on my ET-732, which is annoying because my bedroom is at the opposite end of the house from my equipment.

    Agreed on the Bluetooth. Everything else sounds promising, though.

    Probably not going to get Wifi for under $100. Maybe the price point was tops on the list to start with.

    I think they messed up with the bluetooth. Hopefully they will have an option for a regular receiver as well.
    Wifi would have been way better than Bluetooth

    What exactly is the purpose of bluetooth. Was it for people with headsets for their phones?
