Thank you so much, Rick!

Rick, Anton,

I am trying to get to a more general description for the user manual 
that may cover Bluetooth in general. If you were prepared to think about 
this, I would greatly appreciate it.

The information in the user manual for connecting Bluetooth devices is 
virtually nonexistent. If you are prepared to briefly describe some 
general procedures of connecting DCs that use Bluetooth (I am only aware 
of OSTC and Shearwater). Are there some devices that connect easily? 
What about the other OSs (Win & Mac)? What would a 'standard' way of 
connection be on each OS? (I suspect there is no such thing as a 
'standard' way)  Is the procedure for connecting Shearwater similar to 
that of connecting OSTC? Are there similar problems with the OSTC?

You can give it to me in any way you wish to, telegram style is ok. I 
will try and reformat the info in terms closer to layman's language 
where possible and send it back to you for comment.

Kind regards,
