Tiny Mobile Device Controller

Oct 12, 2023

Music and the outdoors are natural companions but no one wants to expose a mobile device to rain, dirt, dust or the accidental drop. With the waterproof JBL Click Bluetooth wireless controller from ProSpec Electronics, it’s easy to add fingertip control to a tablet or smartphone that’s safely stowed away.

The JBL Click has an adjustable silicon strap that quickly mounts to virtually any steering wheel, tiller, paddle or handlebar. Easily removed, the controller is perfect when back home for use around the pool, garden or gym or while tailgating.

Only 1.3 oz. and the diameter of a quarter, the JBL Click is designed to be used with or without gloves while maintaining steering control. The single turnable and clickable knob is intuitive to use. With it, users can adjust the mobile device’s volume and play/pause/next track control. If the phone rings, the call can be rejected or accepted and terminated. It works with Android and iOS Bluetooth-enabled devices.

Pairing the JBL Click is simple and confirmed by an integrated LED. With Bluetooth Low Energy built-in, the included 3V CR2032 battery will last up to ten months. The JBL Click costs US$49.95.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
