    Bluetooth mouse?

    I've got a rocketfish bluetooth mouse I'd love to connect to my CR48. Anybody had any success with any bluetooth device?

    if you are referring to a wireless mouse, I just plugged in the USB receiver and it worked fine.

    I have a bluetooth wireless mouse. Use one at home with my laptop also. That way, no wires and no usb dongles. It "just works".

    But evidently, Chromebook has a bluetooth chip in it, it doesn't yet work.

    Same here, using an HP wireless mouse. Next to put in my bluetooth adapter and see if I can connect to my earpiece.

    I believe the bluetooth is not yet enabled in the CR-48. The hardware is there, it's just not working yet.

    Guess the good news is that someday a software update might make it work. When we get updates on the CR48, do they give us a list of changes or does it just get pushed out and we get to discover what has changed?

    The only update I've noticed so far was when I first booted up, and honestly I didn't even check to see if it had a change log, I was too excited and just wanted to get the thing up and running!

    LOL! Me to. Besides, when it is new, everything is changed.

    I will pay more attention the next time.

    Don't expect Bluetooth to work quite yet, like what was stated the hardware is there just not implemented yet in the OS.
