    USB Bluetooth Dongle

    My RPI4 is housed in an metall case with other components. The RPI4B onboard Bluetooth works only on short distance (1-2 Meter). Is there a possibilty to use an USB bluetooth Donglel instead of the Raspi's on board Bluetooth?

    Yes, disable the onboard Bluetooth, and a USB dongle should work fine. Iĺve used two different ones without issue, you do need to make sure they are supported by linux.

    BT should work just fine in b7 with the 64 bit kernel. The only thing that is 64 bit is the kernel. All userspace is still 32bit. The main reason for migrating to 64 bit kernel is the memory management on the 4GB board. Unless there is a compelling reason, i'm not going to maintain the 32bit kernel on the pi4 for times sake. The extra maintenance time is not worth it.

    What got me confused a bit is that pCP 6 would report the arch as
    aarch64 even on a Pi 3B. Is this expected to be so? And is all userspace
    code expected to still work as before (the reason I was investigating
    this was a Spotty issue, which does run an external helper application).

    Sorry, I am using a B3 pi

    Sorry, I totally forgot to state I am using this on a RPI B3. That i why I am looking for the 32bit kernel. I've been loading B1 on it and all is well, but I would like to take advantage of the Bluetooth changes of B6. B7 works great on my PI4
