Ok so I guess things changed since when Obsiv originally announced the XIM 4 saying he would include a BT adapter with every XIM4. I just found this out today.

Will any BT 4.0 adapter work? It seems easier to find them then the 2.1 adapter.


Thanks.

I bought a cheap 4.0 bluetooth dongle from ebay for $6. Works fine.

Only ones that don't work seem to be Atheros BT adapters.

Just to clarify, OBsIV meant that the Laird adapter that was required to make an Edge into a pseudo-XIM4 would be (and now is) embedded in the XIM4.  That is, however, the XIM4's bluetooth radio.  You still need one of your own in order to talk to it with your PC.

I'm pretty sure way back when he said there would be a BT dongle included with every XIM4. Maybe I just misunderstood him. No biggie I'll pick one up tomorrow. Loving my XIM so far. Obsiv is the man!
