The quoted 300m range is for open field conditions and may be reduced by obstacles such as walls or by interference. Bluetooth and other 2.4GHz wireless systems can also have dead spots and variations in signal strength across very small distances, a few metres.
300m range assumes two units talking to each other that both have this type of antenna. If a Bluetooth unit at the other end of the link has a poor antenna, the range will be much less. In this situation, range can be improved by fitting the UD100 unit with a stronger antenna, see product accessories below.
Bluetooth specification uses Profiles to allow different types of device to talk to each other, even if they are from different manufacturers. A lot of Bluetooth devices only use a limited set of profiles for the task they need to do, but this device supports most of the possible profiles so can communicate with nearly all Bluetooth devices.
- DUN, Dial-up Networking Profile, connecting to Internet and other dial-up services
- FAX, Fax Profile, PC fax software connection
- LAP, Lan Access Profile, for adhoc Bluetooth networks and connection to WAN, LAN and Internet
- SPP, Serial Port Profile, for UART type connections
- HID, Human Interface Device Profile, for mice, keyboards, joysticks etc
- HCRP, Hard Copy Cable Replacement Profiles, alternative to printer cable but drivers still needed
- FTP, File Transfer Protocol, for file and folder transfer
- OPP, Object Push Profile, for sender to initiate Object transfer - pictures, data tables
- A2DP, Advanced Audio Distribution, high quality audio streaming, especially stereo
- AVRCP, Audio/Video Remote Control Profile, standard interface for TVs etc, plus playback control
- GAVDP, Generic Audio/Video Distribution Profile, For A2DP and VDP
- HSP, Headset Profile, for mobile phone and other headsets
- HFP, Hands Free Profile, for mobile phone hands-free kits
- PAN, Personal Area Network, update to LAP profile
- BIP, Basic Image Profile, for sending images

Bluetooth USB Adapters
Bluetooth USB adapters, also called Bluetooth USB dongles, come in different types from short range devices that are OK for headsets and nearby printers to very long range units that have a range of over 1Km, such as SD100U
. The UD100 USB Bluetooth adapter fits in the middle. Because it has an external stub antenna and powerful wireless circuit, it can easily achieve a 300 m (330 yard) range. This can be extended by changing to a DIPL antenna.
