Thought I would share. I got an email today from Provocraft that the Explore wireless bluetooth adapter is now available for purchase and they give a link for purchase to provocraft, amazon and Joann's. Initially I thought I'd order from Provcract get my circle discount $4 and save some money. Before I hit purchase I decided to check Amazon first because with my Prime discount it's free 2 day shipping. Well Provocraft is selling it for $49.99 and Amazon $29.99 with my free 2 day shipping it's a no brainer.

A few girls bought theirs from Joanns with a coupon. This was a week or two ago. So not sure if you can still do this or not?

Also, make sure your computer is bluetooth compatible.

Does anyone have a review on the wireless for the Explore? I found one at my local Joann today. They will sell it to me for the price on the joann online store which is $29.99. Is it worth it? Any reviews so far?

On the FB site Cricut Design Space some girls a couple weeks ago were having good luck with them.

Just remember to make sure your computer is bluetooth compatible, if it's not you need another adapter to make it compatible.

I don't have any review to show you.

I received my adapter today, and it won't connect to my mac. my mac has bluetooth capabilities (both my mouse and keyboard are wireless). I've tried pairing it to my computer, it will say connected, and then it will say not connected. I have it sitting right next to the computer, so it shouldnt be a distance issue. has anyone had this problem? any suggestions?

Are you sure your computer has bluetooth, I have a wireless mouse, but it actually connects via the wi-fi. I had to add a bluetooth adapter in order to connect my phone and speaker to the computer. I am running a PC.

I had the same problem. I called Cricut Support and a helpful young man named Matt helped me out. Unfortunately, the next day it wouldn't work. I called support again and was told it was because of the newest update. So the person walked me thruogh that. And no sooner had I started cutting again and my Explore and Design Space froze. So, I called this morning and the girl I spoke to today helped me out. When I asked her why this is happening she said that sometimes the adapter needs to be "paired" again! If this happens again, I think I am going to return my adapter to Amazon. But call Cricut Support. They are extremely helpful!

You need to get into your {Device Manager} there it will show if your computer has bluetooth properties installed. Most laptops have bluetooth in them but a lot of PC's don't...

In my Device Manager the very first item listed is Bluetooth.

where are you seeing it for 29.99 at Amazon? When I went to check it out tonight, it's 49.99. :(
