I recently purchased the Techkey Bluetooth dongle since I know the Pi system is unable to connect to multiple Bluetooth devices simultaneously. Unfortunately, I haven't had any luck doing so. I got Bluetooth to work on the Pi4, but it isn't using the dongle to do so. So I was wondering how I can go about doing this? Maybe there is some hidden gem article I missed or something. The 'solution' I tried implementing is as follows:
- Edit the config file by plugging the Pi SD card into your PC and adding "dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt" to the end of it
- Boot the Pi back up and plug in the dongle
- Next, you execute the following command into the terminal: 'sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends bluetooth'
- Finally, check the status of your work by typing in 'sudo service bluetooth status'
P.S. Any suggestions would be truly appreciated, thanks :)
Update: I ordered the Panda Bluetooth 4.0 USB Nano Adapter. So I hope that works because I have just been twiddling my thumbs.
