Is there a place in Windows I can see this? I want to know if it supports bluetooth 3, and the specs are difficult to find!
First, go to Control Panel and open "Device Manager" (or just search for it from the Start Menu). From there, click the dropdown next to Bluetooth and locate the Bluetooth adapter for your device. (It will be the item that does not have "Enumerator" in its name.) In my case, it's "Bluetooth USB Module":
Right-click this item and select "Properties". Then go to the "Advanced" tab and note the LMP (link management protocol) version displayed for the device:
The LMP versions correspond to Bluetooth versions as follows:
- LMP 0.x - Bluetooth 1.0b
- LMP 1.x - Bluetooth 1.1
- LMP 2.x - Bluetooth 1.2
- LMP 3.x - Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
- LMP 4.x - Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
- LMP 5.x - Bluetooth 3.0 + HS
- LMP 6.x - Bluetooth 4.0
- LMP 7.x - Bluetooth 4.1
- LMP 8.x - Bluetooth 4.2
- LMP 9.x - Bluetooth 5.0
Right click on "My Computer" (desktop) -> Device manager -> expand to see the bluetooth driver. In my case it is "Bluetooth v3.0".
Mine appears in "system information" under network adapter as Adapter Type: Ethernet 802.3 Is that what you need?
Your best bet would be to look up your device with the manufacturer to see what is supported by your device. The device may have more capabilities than your OS or device permits. This information will not be reported as a value in the Device Manager.
You should be able to determine if all of the needed profiles are present by looking through the various bluetooth setting by going to the Bluetooth Control Panel, which you can launch directly using the following shortcut in your Run menu or Start menu search
You may also want to check out this page on what versions of bluetooth are supported in Windows 7:
Version 1.1 Version 2.0 Version 2.0 with EDR* Version 2.1 with EDR*
You can go to Start -> Control Pannel -> System (type in the search box) -> Advance System Settings -> Hardware Tab -> Device Manager -> Bluetooth Radios -> Properties -> Details -> Bus reported device description (find in the list box) -> read "value".
