If you would like to try using an alternative Bluetooth Manager for Bluetooth SPP (Serial Port Profile) devices only, you can try our Bluetooth COM setup utility which comes pre-installed on Mesa but an install is available for all of our other Windows Mobile products (Archer, Allegro MX, and TK6000) at:

Some newer or updated software apps now manage Bluetooth device connections without the use of any external manager. These may avoid such issues. Contact the software app developer company for additional information.
