Thanks! Mine works great. I usually have it in the kitchen so I can listen to music while cooking.

Very helpful! Can you add instructions for turning it on and off also? That is super confusing and doesn't seem to work reliably.

Funny their are no instructions to actually turn it off
Why turn it off when it will just turn back on next time it detects your aura in the garage?

It would be more helpful if the software in the speaker actually behaved as advertised. Mine does not.
I agree. I thought the speaker was a great idea. And I still think it's a great IDEA. But the implementation is, well, not good. My speaker will randomly turn on and connect to my phone while it's in the truck and my phone is next to me while I'm sleeping. Or sometimes just refuse to connect to my phone. Or refuse to charge, or... Is it just me? I'm kind of a tech guy. I have other bluetooth speakers and I have no problem with them. I was hoping to leave them at home when I go camping, but I find the Rivian speaker so unreliable, that I have to still take along another speaker. The sound is good though when it works.

I agree - the speaker is not intuitive. Unfortunately these instructions don't help me. Maybe I'm just too dumb to decipher them, LOL. Should make my own.

That said, the speaker has a microphone? Why?

This is helpful thank you! I'll play with mine to see if I can actually get it working.

For your next draft a warning about how plugging in your phone with it off can drain your phone quickly as it charges itself from your phone (at least with an android Pixel)

Has anyone found a way to turn down the volume on the on/off/connection noises?

Hi, maybe I'm the only one who doesn't find the Camp Speaker controls very intuitive, but if there are more of you out there, I made this little one-page cheat sheet for myself so that I don't have to keep opening the manual and scrolling to pages 220 - 226 (where I also find the sequence of instructions to be not-so-logical). I'm sharing it here, I hope some folks find this helpful!
You, friend, are a hero. Thanks for doing this.

I believe you can use it as a phone/conference speaker phone...
