NEW MAVERICK ET-735 - NOW AVAILABLE!! - Page 2

post #21 of 38

I was set on upgrading to the iGrill2 but I'm glad I came across this. I need to order a AMNPS so I'll see if these are available in the store and just get everything at once. Are there any current coupon codes or mil/leo discounts?

Thanks for the link, was that published somewhere here on the site?

 

Sorry if I missed it, I'm new to the forum.

It' was right under your message when I saw it. Hence the irony comment. Lol! It's a real good sale from a real good company. I bought my 735 during his last sale. Still haven't used it yet though. Been using my 733 and my grill.

Lol, that's awesome. It's even better since my wife is pregnant with our first child so we are celebrating our first mother's/father's days this year.

 

I will take that as a sign of fate and stock up :)

Congrats!

Just wanted to post a quick update.

 

First off, customer service from A-Maze-N Products was top notch. I will be returning there for all my grilling accessories needs as well as sending everyone I know that way.

 

Secondly, the new Maverick ET-735 was super simple to setup and extremely accurate right out of the box!

 

On my first smoke ever I ran all 4 probes, 1 ambient probe on the top and 3rd rack to get a good picture of actual cook temps as well as a temp probe in one of the slabs on each rack to monitor temps.

 

Here's a quick picture of it all in action, it's hard to see but the monitor is clipped to the rail on the back. I synced up with my iPad and ran everything from there.

4 stars for the unit and probes, will add the 5th star if the probes clean up easily and remain consistent after a couple more smokes.

3 stars for the app. It seems like the app is still in it's early development stages and from previous reviews it seems like they have already taken care of many of the bugs in it. I didn't run into any problems, but I believe there is a lot of untapped potential in it, such as recording temps to memory to produce and save temp graphs from each session. My only complaint is that silencing an alert on the app does not silence it on the unit so you still have to go out and hit the power button to silence the audible alert. There may be a setting on the device itself to change that so I will look into it a little further.

Wonder if the Android bugs have been resolved yet?

Just received my Maverick ET-735 last week (ordered off of Amazon....should have ordered from a Forum member). I wanted to use it with my new UDS builds that we are completing, and had really high hopes for this product. Unfortunately, it appears i have been let down. I can't seem to get the app to connect with the transmitter, and when i do, it tells me there are no probes connected.  The fact that it ships without an instruction guide, is pretty comical (as how can i read an instruction manual on my phone, while fumbling through app and phone settings. My only regret is that I didn't keep the box, so i could return the product (tossed it in a bit of drunken competition bbq rage). I might try it with another phone or two (I was trying to use it with a Samsung Galaxy S5 Active....and got no love), just to see.....but as of right now, i am not impressed at all.

 

I did breakdown, that same day after discovering the ET-735 may be more hassle than it is worth given the software, and purchase an ET-733. I fired that up right away, and had no issues. However, several at the BBQ comp that I was at told me that they can't use wireless mavericks because they will pick up other competitors sensors. That exact issue was what i was trying to avoid by purchasing the ET-735 (well that and being able to monitor 4 probes would have been cool).

I use both of my Mavericks (732's) at competitions and have never had issues with frequency interference or anything.

 

I really wanted to get the 735 but all the reading on here hinted that its not very compatible with Android devices, which is what my phone is. So i'm going to wait for good news about a software update or something new

Seems like a lot of problems with the 735.  Also, BT range is very limited.  Doesnt make much sense to me.

735 works great with the iPhone. No issues.

That's the word so far...they developed the software with iOS in mind and not Android. Im hoping they'll fix that because if they do i'll buy one ASAP

The whole world has become Apple based. I guarantee they'll fix the issue with the android applications but to start they went with apple and can you blame them? Apple basically owns American households now. They are in almost every house in America.

Not this one!:sausage:   I left Apple when they stopped supporting the AppleIIGS computers and went on developing the Mac's.  Never looked back!

Not here either!

 

Your corner of the world may be Apple based but where I am they certainly don't. A quick snapshot of the people around the office today and 25% had Apple phones and the other 75% had android.

 

Even though Apple produce quality hardware, I object to paying a premium for a product - and then be dictated to by their marketing department as to what I can and cannot run on it and what it will and will not interface with.

In a pure numbers game android far outsells Apple. No arguing that. They are far more affordable. But the apple users (iPhone/iPad) are the consumers who spend the money. Like you said it's a quality device, with a premium price. The people willing to pay for that pricey item are the folks targeted by company's like maverick. They clearly developed the 735 with the iPhone in mind.
