    I use one for my wireless mouse a rocketfish dongle for a rocketfish mouse. I just plugged mine in and the mouse just worked, not setup or anything at all. The wheel works and right mouse and back button.

    Thats correct...I don't know...that's why I said I wasn't sure. I think Tim is awaiting the arrival of an FT4, which has bluetooth, to see if it's drivers are compatable with the FT3. I don't know of any other firmware that supports bluetooth but like I said...it's not my cup of tea!

    ummmm.....

    your choices of 'other' firmware is quite limited, theres the 'official' firmware , which seems to have stopped development, or S01's firmware, which is AFAIK is based on Tims/Tims is based on......... but without all the extras, like audio optimisation, sdcard mount points etc!!

    I use a wireless mouse and keyboard with mine, also; however, they are NOT bluetooth and will only operate the keyboard and mouse that came with the dongle.

    I read somewhere the other day that providing the bluetooth pairing has already been set up (on a pc or somewhere) then a bluetooth usb dongle will work in an FT3, but it will not work if the pairing is not set up beforehand.

    Yes; it is an RF transceiver that came with the mouse and keyboard. It is a Logitech EX100.
