I don't have a "smart" phone and don't need one. Probably never will. I manage profiles - switching, tweaking, etc. - via BlueTooth from my PC using XIM4 Manager.


I'm concerned by the "wired-only" addition to this management scheme for PC. Does this mean I'm going to lose functionality if I switch from my XIM4 to the APEX?


thanks!

hey,

with xim apex the wireless pc manager doesnt exist anymore, its wired only now
but you can still customize everything as the pc manager is identical to the smartphone manager

for switching id recommend to use the config hotkeys, tweaking could become a bit of an annoyance as you need to replug the xim to the console to test your adjustments
maybe you have an ios or android tablet around to run the manager for on-the-fly configuration

Nope. Just an extra expense for something I don't need and would never use. If the APEX manager runs as a Kindle HD app, that'll be great. Otherwise it looks like I'll be using the XIM4 until it stops working. Thanks for the reply, Od1n!

Oh, and thanks everyone for all the device purchase suggestions - even the unnecessarily snarky ones. I'm well aware of what's available out there. If I were addicted to social media or needed a "smart" device for work, I'd have one, but I'm not and I don't.

No. Your PC typically does not support connecting to Bluetooth devices via Bluetooth LE, so you will not be able to do this.
Xbox One / PC
XIM Apex / Logitech G Pro Keyboard / Logitech G900
Astro MixAmp Pro TR / Sennheiser HD598 / Blue Yeti Mic
