Bluetooth support is not included in the Toradex standard image, but if you are familiar with the Windows CE Platform Builder, you can add Bluetooth support by yourself. For USB Bluetooth devices using HCI transport layer we provide USB Bluetooth Flash installers to add Bluetooth support to a standard Toradex Windows CE BSP.
Our Standard Embedded Linux Images supports Bluetooth HCI-USB, HCI-UART.
We are currently testing several products to find suitable solutions for our customers. There will be a list of tested and recommended Bluetooth adapters in the future.
