Turn your Android device into a professional bat research tool with the compact, affordable, and plug-in Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro. The Echo Meter Touch 2 pro is designed for bat professionals and features a higher quality microphone, adjustable gain, and higher sample rate. Its design reduces unwanted sound and captures frequencies up to 192kHz. Kaleidoscope Pro classifiers suggest species and accelerates bat call analysis. The 'Echo Meter Touch Bat Detector, Recorder & Analyzer' is available from the Apple Store.

Q. What are the capabilities of Auto-ID?
A. Auto-ID is intended for use in analysing recordings of single bats in free flight in low-clutter environments, rather than during roost emergence, whilst social calls are being made, or when you have multiple or captive bats. The Auto-ID doesn't include every possible bat for each region and will be identified as the species with the most similar call. Bats vary their echolocation calls in response to a wide variety of needs, no automated call identification can achieve 100% accuracy in species identification and should not be relied on as a basis for scientific research. Nevertheless, in the hands of well-trained experts, bat detector recordings can be used to identify many species, providing invaluable discoveries. The Echo Meter Touch allows high-quality recording suitable for analysis by experts.
Q. Are there certain requirements to use the path and recording location function?
A. Yes, this feature requires an iOS device with GPS capability or a Bluetooth GPS receiver.
Q. What are the storage requirements?
A. This depends on the capacity of your device. 5-second recordings use 2.5 MB of storage. A 32 GB phone (with 28 GB of storage available) would be able to save 10,000 recordings. The app also needs at least 600 MB of internal memory storage. The app will warn you of insufficient storage.
Q. What is the battery life of this device?
A. This is dependent on the capacity of your iOS device. If you are running your iOS device with screen brightness minimised, audio at maximum, recording and Auto-ID on and GPS off it would be expected that:
- iPAD would last up to 9 hours
- iPAD mini would last up to 7 hours
- iPhone would last up to 3.5 hours
Q. Is the Echo Meter Touch 2 compatible with all iOS devices?
A. The devices listed below are compatible with Echo Meter Touch 2 and Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro with iOS versions up to 12. There is no guarantee that future iOS versions (released each year in the fall) will work on older devices on this list. With each new iOS version, more processing is required to run the increasingly advanced features. For this reason, it will be necessary for us to remove older devices from this list annually.
