In my experience so far is that Bluetooth is not very reliable with hackintosh . I have tried both ar5b195 and Broadcom BCM94352HMB and it seems that Bluetooth can't be used on a regular basis . For example ar5b195 bt sometimes wouldn't work after wake from sleep and bcm4352hmb would lose bt connectivity after wake from sleep . For example the Bluetooth would be on but no devices are found and so the Bluetooth mouse makes erratical movement.

I think best to do is to use a wifi only card and use usb Bluetooth dongles whenever you need Bluetooth connectivity , just my 0.2$

I have the same wifi card with the AR3011 bluetooth and my apple keyboard is fine over bluetooth but the magic mouse keeps coming and going? Any advice on this and also why would you say the bluetooth on this is junk out of interest and if it is then can you let me know what pins to tape and maybe a picture as I might do the same and buy a usb bluetooth dongle if its better.

Specs - Probook 4340s Mavericks 10.9.3
