    Promethean board 378 pro

    I was wondering if this board has Bluetooth capability or how do you tell if has Bluetooth capability.

    Also has anyone got a guide on how to connect up the Promethean boards up via Bluetooth.

    Thanks

    Nathan

    I don't think it does and according to the promethean knowledge base it looks like there are some 78 boards that have Bluetooth but none sold in the uk.

    Thanks for that. Maybe you will know is there anyway of transmitting the USB, that controls the board via Bluetooth or any other way to transmit it without it been plugged in?.

    No that I know of and I wouldn't recommend it anyway, I'm guessing you have an issue with where the board is installed in relation to it's pc?

    Yeah we are hopefully swapping the teacher stations with mac airs. There is one room where the USB to the board goes about 15 meters. Which is too far for the mac to pick up the board. Could you suggest anything to try?

    You can buy a promethean wireless usb dongle which will get that board working wirelessly but i dont think it uses bluetooth.

    Really? I asked Promethean direct to ask this question and they said you can't do it in the UK

    That is what you need, I know it works has I've had the same model board connected wirelessly at work although I do remember having to firmware upgrade it first.

    Is the proper official kit for the board I think.
