And frankly... I don't really care if we don't support those two with BLE
under Windows because they DO come with the USB cable and that is
SO MUCH faster anyway. It works under iOS and Android as BLE device
and that's what really matters. Anybody on Windows can just use USB.

But I do care about the Perdix AI and the Teric, because BLE is the only
way to download from them...
