A few questions I hope the answes are YES!!!!!!
« on: 01:28 PM - 01/17/14 »
1) Being that the XIM4 is coming equipped with BT, will the Sony Nav now work without the need of any add-on?

2)Can we sync multiple BT devices to the XIM4?

3) Will the XIM4 accept external power, maybe even a dual usb to XIM4 for added power?

1) Yes, we will support Move Nav without the need of an additional BT adapter (although, this won't be available at Beta launch)

2) What devices do you want to pair (besides your Nav and phone)?

3) XIM4 won't have an external power connector. But, you are always free to connect your peripherals to a powered hub.

The Nav will work IN BETA WITH an additional BT adapter right?

Most likely just my Nav, phone and mouse, maybe multiple android devices just to compare them....same with mouse.

I think we may be wired only on the Nav to start, I need to confirm with Orbital. The firmware went through a substantial redesign so we had to temporarily break a few things to make progress.

You have BT gaming mice?

Are we going to be able to use wireless mouse (G700)? Do not mind using the Nav wired but I have not been able to find a good wire for the mouse.

I hated the Nav wired more so then my mouse  :(

Nav causes sporadic dropouts everytime I use it wired, hopefully you guys resolve this pretty quickly or it will be "Random dropout thread" all over again.

Also, you can use this cable for the G700, best one I've found so far and works 1000x's better then the one that comes with it.

I wouldn't mind using a wired nav and mouse (and will be going that route if the option exists).  I kind of prefer it since it's a few less batteries in my life to worry about.  :)

Will the be any appreciable lag with a wireless setup?

Thermostat and refrigerator, of course...

i'd just like to have the DS4 connected to the XIM4 wirelessly. and the XIM4 wirelessly connected to the PS4.

XIM4 will still need a USB connection for power, but that i can manage to come from a closer source to the XIM4 so that i don't have to run a wire from the PS4 to my bed (XIM's dock is on top of the bed)
soon..

I have been looking at the Orochi 2013 Gaming Mouse which is a Bluetooth mouse.
