Default adding a bluetooth card to my mini? - 12-29-2012, 08:41 PM

hi I am thinking about adding a Bluetooth card to my mini 10v (1011) which did not come with bluetooth. I was wondering if I just stick the card in the empty spot is that all I have to do, and will it work? I saw the empty spot where it goes when I upgraded my RAM. Has anybody else tried this? I know I can just buy a USB bluetooth Dongle, but I'd rather not waste the USB port, if I can just install the bluetooth internally. Thanks everyone!!

P.s I checked older posts before posting this but couldn't find the answer.

Yes, that should be all you need to do.

I received the Bluetooth card today, and it took me about 10 minutes for the whole installation. I booted up my mini, and it recognized the card, and downloaded the drivers immediately. I definitely recommend this upgrade to anyone that's thinking about doing it. It cost me $9, and less than 15 minutes of my time.
