Remember that every pass through BlueTooth adds A/D and D/A conversions, 
which add latency. This applies to both RX and TX signals if both use 
BlueTooth. WiFi and Ethernet paths have the same issue.

What this means in practice is that you HEAR a bit late, and your rig 
transmits a bit late. For casual operation it's certainly not a 
deal-breaker, but I sure wouldn't want it if I were in serious competition.
