Bluetooth Virtual Sniffer for Windows

I only just found out about this but Microsoft released a packet sniffer for Bluetooth on Windows 10 back in February. This is incredibly useful for debugging and is something I’ve been craving for some time. Previously I’ve been able to analyse packets from Android using Wireshark and now we can view activity between Windows and another device.

I’m desperately hoping this provide some clues to the constant “Unreachable” errors when trying to communicate with an iPhone which Windows Settings acknowledges is currently connected…
