Is the Zomm Leash Plus compatible with an iPad 1 gen? Apple's website says yes, but ZOMM's Knowledgebase says no.
The ZOMM Wireless Leash connects to mobile devices as a hands-free device or headset, using the Bluetooth Hands-free profile (HFP 1.5) or Headset Profile (HSP 1.2).
The Wireless Leash can pair and connect with the iPad2 as Apple has recently added support for the Bluetooth Hands-free profile (HFP 1.5). Unfortunately, the original iPad does not support either HFP 1.5 or HSP 1.2 so it is unable to pair with the Wireless Leash.

According to ZOMM website the 'plus' can be used with ANY iOS device (see quoted)
I am purchasing the 'plus' later today to be used with a 1st Generation iPad and 3rd Generation iPod Touch. I will report functionality when a definitive determination can be made...
From ZOMM support pages...
"The original ZOMM Wireless Leash can connect to the Apple iPad 2 or iPod Touch (4th generation) as a hands-free device or headset, using the Bluetooth Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.5) or Headset Profile (HSP 1.2).
Additionally, the new ZOMM Wireless Leash Plus has been “Made for iOS,” meaning that it can connect to any iOS device produced by Apple."
