Bluetooth Dongle Compatibility with MotioninJoy

Here we have listed Bluetooth dongles that work and don't work with MiJ, and some adapters that might have issues.
Note that this list is incomplete, please share what BT dongles you have got working with MiJ!!

Please Note: Cheap BT adapters, eg ones from Dealextreme, rarely work with MotioninJoy since they are so cheap… You buy them at your own risk!

Important Notes:

  • BT stands for Bluetooth.
  • Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required fields to fill in.
  • The MotioninJoy drivers will OVERRIDE your normal Bluetooth adapter's drivers, so only the PS3 controller can connect to it.
    If you need Bluetooth support for other devices such as a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse you will either need to: 1. Only use the PS3 controller through USB, 2. (only for USB adapters) Plug the BT adapter into 1 USB port for use with MiJ and another one for other BT devices, or 3. (recommended) Have 2 BT adapters in the system with 1 unplugged/disabled while running the MiJ driver installer, so you can use the PS3 controller with 1 BT adapter, and other Bluetooth devices with the other adapter.
  • When choosing a Bluetooth adapter to get, keep this in mind:
    Broadcom / WIDCOMM Bluetooth adapters do not work with v4 and below driver versions but work with v5 and later.
    Cambridge/CSR Bluetooth adapters do not work with the v5 drivers but work with the v4 drivers and may or may not work with the v6 drivers.
