Hello all,

I'm looking for a USB Bluetooth 4.0 dongle that works with Mountain Lion out of the box. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which one to purchase? Perhaps owners of functioning USB Bluetooth dongles, can you let me know which one you purchased, and if you needed to install kexts for it?

Thank you.

I have the IOGEAR GBU521. You need to use a the kext for it to work on Lion and according to the updated first post in that thread, it should be working OOB with Mountain Lion.

I used the kext made by dta in post #10 so that you don't have to modify the IOBluetoothFamily.kext at all. Both my Apple Wireless Keyboard and Apple Magic Trackpad work great with it.

Hi,

I have a DeLock 61889 which works very well on my hackintosh running 10.9 Mavericks. I use it only with a Logitech T631 mouse, no hack needed, I connected the dongle, paired my mouse, worked.

Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-Z87M-D3H.

I know you asked for Mountain Lion, but anyway, good to know it works in Mavericks as well.

Regs,
Charles
