What is the Bushnell Disc Jockey? 

The Bushnell Disc Jockey is a portable Bluetooth speaker that integrates with the UDisc app to find and speak your distance to the basket. You can play music, podcasts, or other audio through the Disc Jockey, then press the Bushnell Button on the side of the speaker to get an audible range to the target on the disc golf course. Press and hold (long press) the Bushnell Button to hear a summary of current scores for you and your cardmates.

Tips for success

  • For best results, make sure the course you're playing has an accurate layout map. The Disc Jockey uses the GPS in your smartphone to estimate your distance to the basket by comparing your GPS location to the basket location in UDisc. Please ensure your smartphone is at the location you want to measure from, and make sure your smartphone has a clear line of sight to the sky. For more tips on increasing GPS accuracy, read this article.

  • Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your phone (via the "Settings" app). The first time you connect, you'll need to pair both the speaker and the Bushnell Button. Pair the speaker via your phone's list of available Bluetooth devices ("Disc Jockey"), and then pair the Bushnell Button via the UDisc mobile app's Settings menu.

  • When you open a scorecard in the UDisc app, the Bushnell Button will automatically connect to UDisc (if it has been previously paired) and is ready to go as soon as you see the Bushnell "B" icon in the top right of the scorecard map.

UDisc Troubleshooting

  • When your Disc Jockey is paired to UDisc, you'll see a Bushnell "B" icon in the upper-right of the layout map inside a scorecard, and you can tap the "B" to see more options and to check the pairing status of your Disc Jockey. You can also access this same menu from More -> Settings -> Bushnell Disc Jockey.

  • If your Disc Jockey won't connect to UDisc, but you've paired it successfully in the past, try restarting your phone and your Disc Jockey and try again. If that doesn't work, go to More -> Settings -> Bushnell Disc Jockey and hit the settings icon or X to unpair your Bushnell Button, then scan for devices again to restart the pairing process.

  • Within the Bushnell Disc Jockey Settings, tap on the Gear icon to change the speaker's playback voice. On Android, you can control speed and pitch via voice settings. 

  • If you don't see the Bushnell Disc Jockey option in settings, make sure you've installed the most recently updated version of the UDisc app, and please enable auto-update to ensure you always have the newest app update in the future. 

  • A course layout must be mapped in UDisc to use the Bushnell Button's distance-to-basket feature. If the layout isn't yet mapped, you can add a new layout map inside the UDisc app.

  • The course layout map must be enabled to get distance to the basket. If the map is off, tap the toggle in the top right of the scorecard to turn the map on.

  • You can check the remaining battery life of the device in your Bluetooth system settings.

Hardware (Bushnell) Troubleshooting

  • Please consult the manual that came with your Disc Jockey.

  • If you are having issues with the Disc Jockey not playing music or calling out distance to the basket with the Bushnell Button, please ensure that the speaker is linked to your portable device via Bluetooth.

  • To disconnect Bluetooth, press the + and - buttons simultaneously until the LED indicator is quickly blinking a blue light. The device is now in Bluetooth pairing mode again and can be paired with a different device.
