We just purchased a new Quad pack of the 6500. Our old Panasonic phone had after 10 years given up the ghost.
I went for the 6500 mainly due to its 300m range. However, we have a phone in the workshop down the garden which is approx 45m away, and yet the signal does not reach. This seems pretty poor?
Wondered if there is anything else I can try to resolve this? I will try a different handset down there today, just in case but in the meantime I thought I would ask.
300m vs 45m does not even seem close to me?
Thanks in advance
Welcome to the forum.
The range will be dependant on external factors that may interfere with the signal.
To make sure you get the best range and reception from your handset, the BT6500 userguide advises "to avoid interference by placing the base unit away from large metal objects such as fridge freezers and microwave ovens or electronic products such as computers and TVs".
Could any of these be affecting the handset's range?
