    To check if your Mac has Bluetooth based on the Broadcom chipset, and therefore eligible for this update, go to Apple, About This Mac, and click on More Info ...

    Once the System Profiler panel appears, check out the Hardware section on the left panel, and click on Bluetooth. Info will show up on the right panel, and look at the manufacturer.

    I upgraded my Bluetooth Firmware already on my 15" Macbook Pro and I still get the occasional drop in connection. :(

    it doesn't trigger so I downloaded from the site. Upon installing, it says I don't need the update :) so I guess this is an automatic update :)
