I am trying to use the Sony Nav with my Xim Apex as I did with the Xim 4 which is wired. As a user suggested (When I used the Xim4) I removed the battery from my Nav because I was using it wired only and it worked fine with the Xim4. If I connect everything to my laptop and open the Xim software on my laptop, I can set the buttons for my nav. When I press the buttons on my Nav the pressed buttons display on the Xim software on my laptop. If I hook everything to the Xbox series X the Sony Nav does not show up on the Xim app on my iPhone. If I plug the Xim Apex into the Xbox Series X first, followed by the Xim hub with the mouse and Sony Nav plugged in. The Sony icon shows up but when I press any buttons on the Sony Nav nothing is displayed on the Xim app. If I press buttons on the mouse they show up on the Xim app. I am able to control the Xbox Series X with the Xbox Series controller X while it is plugged into the Xim hub. What am I doing wrong? I am using Ximmanager 20210313. and I am using Firmware 20210223.

Thank you in advance.

Also worth mentioning. If I plug the Xim Apex into the laptop, followed by the Xim hub with the mouse and Sony Nav plugged in. The Sony Nav shows up on my iPhone app but if I press any buttons nothing displays on the Xim app on my iPhone. If I press any buttons on my mouse (G502 lightspeed) the key presses display on the Xim app on my iPhone.

Once again, Thank you.

I take it no one uses the Sony Nav, either that or I'm the only one with this problem.

Sony Nav must plug the last, just plug only controller and mouse after normal state of xim status then plug PS Nav (wired).
If you want to use PS Nav wireless you need an extra Bluetooth Dongle.

1. Plug Xim, Mouse and Controller
2. Plug PS Nav (wired)
*Due to xim always detect PS Nav first
**For wireless PS Nav use
3. Unplug PS Nav (wired)
4. Plug BT Dongle wait for PS Nav connect to xim hub
