Pi driver for Edimax Bluetooth 5 (BT-8500)

Hi,

Does anyone know what drivers the Edimax bt-8500 needs, or if it is supported out of the box on Pi 3B+ (kernel 4.19) and upwards?

Thanks

Hi John,

Welcome to the forum :partying_face:, I apologize for the late reply.

I’m not sure, I wasn’t able to find too much info on it. However, I had a look at the datasheets for the various models and found this page. Should have all of the information and drivers that you’d need.
