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 Android device with GPS capability or a Bluetooth GPS receiver.
Q. Is there a maximum size limit to MMS attachments?
A. Yes, on Andriod devices this can vary between 0.3MB and 1MB. Recordings that are larger than the maximum size limit cannot be shared via MMS messaging.
Q. Do I need a connector?
A. The Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro requires an Android device with a micro-USH connector. USB-C devices require the use of an adapter.
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. Is the Echo Meter Touch 2 compatible with all Android devices?
A. The Echo Meter Touch 2 is designed to work with Android tablets and phones running Android version 6.0 or later and with at least 1GB of RAM. For a full list of compatible devices and more details on requirements visit: www.wildlifeacoustics.com/devices.
