    Hello all,
    Could you please help me figure out if I can interface bluetooth USB dongle with PIC18F?
    Also, is there any software that I can program the bluetooth USB dongle? And use hyperterminal to talk between bluetooth which connects to PCs?
    Thanks

    The simple answer is you can't!

    The dongle is USB periphery device and expects to be connected to a USB host.
    Some PICs in the PIC18 series can emulate a USB periphery which allows them to communicate to a USB host such as a PC but none of the PIC18 series of chips can emulate a USB host. You need to go up to the PIC24 series (or higher) to do that.
