BR-E1 Connection issue

Pauly_6_String

Hello all. I have a BR-E1 Bluetooth remote that I use with an R6 and a G5X MkII. With each camera I can’t connect the remote consistently.  I often have to delete and re-pair to get it to work with both cameras.

 

Don’t imagine its a compatibility issue (happened on previous remote too before I washed it in my pants). Is there anyone who has had the same issue and resolved it?

Some Bluetooth devices allow for connections to up to three devices, but not concurrently.  Your two cameras would require separate configurations to be stored in the remote.  Check to see if the User Manual gives you any indication that multiple configurations can be saved in the remote. 

Check with Canon Support to see if the remote is capable of saving multiple connection configurations.

So manual definitely states one camera at a time.

My R6 menu tells me my BR-E1 is 'paired' with the camera, and bluetooth connectivity is enabled. Yet the remote will not fire the camera?

Ah so! Trying to look this up in the small booklet manual (which in my opinion is worthless) was not helpful. And I didn't have the time to sit at my desktop to page through the more extensive download manual. Hopefully this is one lesson I won't forget! Thank you.
