Hello Community

I am successfully using the Apex with the Logitech light speed and the navigation controller, BUT, the nav-controller is not being recognized unless it's plugged in.... I used this exact set up when I had the wired logitech G502 with the nav-controller being recognized via bluetooth.....

Any tips on why as of now it has to be plugged in?  what am i missing?

Thank you all

Make sure the Nav is disconnected from PS4 Devices. This is what gets me when trying to use it wireless.

Remove mouse from port one and put the Nav there.
Reset the Xim.
Remove the Nav cable and press the dashboard buttons a couple of times. It should start working wirelessly within a few seconds.
Then you can plug the mouse back to port 1.

Thanks all,

I switched out my mouse because the wire was torn up!!  and wanted a more wireless system.  Yes the Navigation controller is a wireless controller by default... But for some reason it's not being recognized as such.  I also noticed that you guys have your ports all twisted in different ways LOL, maybe I'll do that

Keep you all posted

You can kind of get ‘jammed’ if when the ‘Select User’ pops up on PS4 screen you use the Navi to select it instead of the DS4..

It’s not something I mapped out exactly, or an easier fix than resetting the Navi via its little button on back & also removing it from the PS4’s paired device list and re-doing from scratch..
Hope this helps
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
