If you're installing Shearwater Desktop on a laptop and are planning to connect via Bluetooth, check to see if you have a built-in Bluetooth radio before plugging in the USB Bluetooth dongle that came with your dive computer. If you do have a built-in Bluetooth radio, then don't plug in the USB Bluetooth dongle as having more than one Bluetooth radio available will cause connection problems with Shearwater Desktop.

If you're using Shearwater Desktop to connect to a Petrel or a Predator, make sure you don't plug in the USB Bluetooth dongle that came with your dive computer. Shearwater Desktop will use the built-in bluetooth radio on your Mac to connect.
