Hi Everyone,

Well there's been a crazy flurry of BT discussion all over the forums since BT became functional. I thought it'd be useful to consolidate our experiences with different BT devices.

If we can keep to a standard fromat that'd be great, and as a device is well understood I can bring it back up into a master list in this OP.

So I suggest the following format:

DEVICE TYPE: e.g. Headset, GPS, etc
DEVICE MODEL NUMBER AND NAME: e.g. Mototola H390
PAIRS: Yes/No
CONNECTS: Yes/No
RANGE: in feet
FUNTIONALITY: Does not work / Works / Limitations or bugs
LIMITATIONS AND BUGS: Describe limitations or bugs.
WORKAROUNDS: Workarounds to resolve issues.
REQUIRED APPS: Software that is required to make the device work
COMPATIBLE APPS: Software that can use the device.
CM7 version: e.g. nightly 19
KERNEL: e.g. CM7 stock; Dalingrin's OC kernel 3/13/11

QUESTIONS: questions you might have, or like answered

please link to original posts for bugs, workarounds, software solutions etc - credit where credit is due, and it helps us follow the resolution of issues

***Change log***

- A huge oversight on my part, but the original post did not include suggested fields for CM7 version and Kernel, now added.

***Summary***

GPS - many working devices reported, with supporting apps
Wiimote - works with supportin software
A2DP (audio) - works as-is, range is device and limited
Keyboards - varied success, depending in part on being able to enter security codes during pairing
Handsfree and headset (microphone) devices - do not work... lots of buzz on this one... wait patiently folks
