I recall in the yoto mini some general instructions and warnings. I don't have it anymore but I remember seeing a symbol that suggested it should not be used around pacemakers. At least that is my interpretation. My kid's grandfather will be traveling and staying with us and he has a pacemaker. Does anyone have any more details about this symbol. Is the yoto something I should completely turn off and stow away or can he listen with them or he should not be in the same room or car.

It’s ok as long as it’s 6 inches away from pacemaker.

It’s the same guidance as mobile phones, they have magnets in them too.

It’s very unlikely you are going to have a yoto that close to your pacemaker site, but they have to issue the guidance.

So if he is in same room/car as a mobile he’s ok with the yoto. Just don’t set it in on granda’s chest. (Speaking as a mum with a pacemaker that has 2 kids and 2 yotos)
