I am setting up a system for my school, and we need to know weather we should get Wiimote with or without Plus. We will be using Smoothboard, and we need, if possible, for it to be super simple for teachers to connect the remotes. (Such as using Smoothconnect)

If we need to get them without plus, how do we need to deal with getting them? Is there a good place where we can get them at a good price (under $40)

farmerdave,

I would recommend buying a new Wii Remote Plus from a local game store or department store.  Purchasing an older Wii Remote (without the plus) is tough because I purchased one online and it turned out to be a fake (very poor performance).  I would buy from only a trusted source and a local store might be the best bet.

I just looked and Walmart has the Wii Remote Plus on sale now for $34.42, maybe that would be a good place to start Smiley

Just remember that with the New Wii Remote Plus, using the Toshiba bluetooth stack is required with smoothboard.

Good luck!

If I go with the one with Plus, I have to use  Toshiba bluetooth stack. Which only works with compatible devices. DO you know any USB - Bluetooth compatible Toshiba devices.

The generic non branded usb bluetooth dongles can be used with the Toshiba Bluetooth stack, but you can only use it for 30 days and then reinstall if you want to keep using it...kind of annoying.

Smoothboard has a page you can see for more info: https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1X_Q7_Da4-g2l6AaHgHZTrdzyAuPuM6UmU8zeK6aUG-k

I looked at the resellers in this forum and found these two:

Hope this helps Smiley

Also, if you have a mac, there is no need to use the Toshiba bluetooth stack as all versions of the Wii Remote and Plus will work.
