Here are some tips to fix issues with the Jabra Evolve 65 2nd generation:

- Jabra Direct App: Download the Jabra Direct app. This app detects the headset when you’re using the Jabra USB dongle1.
- Firmware Update: You can manually update the firmware of your Jabra device. Navigate to the product support page for your Jabra device on the Jabra Support website, download the latest firmware version for your device, and save the file on your computer.
