    Can anyone explain what is the best way to connect the D500 to my PC.

    The bluetooth dongle on ebay is £10 whilst the USB is only £5.00

    Will a dongle work with any PC or does that PC have to have sort of bluetooth conection.

    Thanks in advance

    I recently got a bluetooth dongle to work with my Samsung D500 and it was a pain to setup due to Windows XP and Service pack 2. Microsoft being Microsoft decided to supply some bluetooth drivers with Service pack 2 which causes problems for the dongle. There is a workaround though and it is available on the internet. If you get a message that mentions licensing after installing the dongle you need the workaround. However once the dongle worked it was very useful.

    Bluetooth can be very draining on the battery if it is on all the time. I have a Moto V3, and I connect it via USB, and it charges the battery at the same time.
