  1. Hello,

    Every time I turn on my V5200, which is paired with my Mac pro, the mouse, which is BT Logitech, doesn’t work (it works, but I have a hard time following the cursor on the monitor) and as soon as I turn the V5200 off, the mouse works normal. What do you think I should do to resolve the issue?

    Thanks

    • When using any Bluetooth headset with a laptop, make sure to use a headset that comes with a Bluetooth dongle. We regularly having customers reporting issues when connecting directly to a laptop via Bluetooth connection. Even though it should work, computers have different Bluetooth profiles (data versus audio) that conflict each other and cause random issues.
