Beartooth only works with other Beartooth devices. While we could have designed Beartooth to be compatible with other two-way radios, this would have increased cost, increased interface complexity, and decreased battery life. With this in mind, we determined that not being compatible with legacy radios makes for a better overall experience.
Anytime you are in a place that has no cellular service, like skiing or hiking, or when the networks are too congested, like at a music festival or football game.
