Bluetooth version

Post by majorfifth » Wed Mar 12, 2008 11:32 am

I do wish that a Bluetooth version of the SmartNav unit was available. Using it with my laptop with that lengthy cable is a pain... I end up gathering the cable together with a wire wrap.

Hello:

With the SmartNAV 4, you should be able to just use a smaller USB cable, as you can change it out.

Going wireless with SmartNAV is not practical, because of the amount of power consumed by the IR LEDs that are used to track the reflective marker. We do like the idea though!
