Gear: Tiny Phone Controller Fits Paddle to Steering Wheel

JBL Click

Nov 24, 2022

On the water, most people store mobile devices in safe but relatively inaccessible spots. This makes music playback and receiving calls difficult— but here’s the JBL Click Bluetooth wireless controller. Easily attached to a steering wheel, stanchion, bimini rail, wakeboard tower or paddle, it provides instant control of an Android or iOS smartphone.

Fully waterproof to IPX5 standards, the JBL Click is built for extreme conditions. The integrated silicone strap adjusts to a wide range of shapes and diameters to allow it to be mounted closest to the action, and quickly moved anytime needed. Pairing is simple, confirmed with an LED indicator. With Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) reduced power consumption, the easily replaceable CR2032 battery will last ten months.

JBL ClickThe JBL Click has a single rotating, clickable button to control the smartphone’s play/pause, previous/next track and volume up/down functionality. If a call is received, it’s simple to decline it, or answer it then hang up when finished to get back to the music.

At a mere 1.3 oz. and about the size of a quarter, this tiny mobile accessory is unobtrusive and portable.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
