    foldable Bluetooth keyboard ... help

    I did a quick search here, and i found this keyboard

    http://www.thinkoutside.com/stowawaybt_product.html

    I would like to use it in my car but i don't know what kind of BT adaptor i need on my mobo. Since i have a MII 12000, i would like to use a CF card.

    Any suggestions ?

    TIA

    i am looking for a BT keyboard as well, but my worry is that if i need to get into the BIOS for some reason... or perhaps use the KB before windows boots up, it wont see the BT USB receiver and i couldnt use the KB.

    I think you'll find the CF bluetooth adapters to be much more expensive than the USB counterparts. Either way as long as it supports the HID standard (Human Interface Device), you’ll be fine.

    Chita79, how often do you really have to do what? Throw a mini ps2 or usb KB in with your spare tire and you'll be set.

    You're welcome. Oops... forgot to mention... most of them do support HID (kinda useless without it), so don't worry about it too much.
