Boot Camp bluetooth drivers for Windows 7 of the new BCM20702 card are faulty you will notice mainly if you try to pair a Bluetooth Audio Device. Forums are seeded with topics reporting different issues.

With previous versions (BCM2070 MBA2010, etc) you may get a workaround installing the latest Broadcom drivers, but that is not the case for the latest BT card.
Please help pushing some pressure on Apple to provide appropriate bluetooth drivers for the new bluetooth card: BCM20702 BT V4 + HS, built in Macbook Air MID2011, MacBook Pro 2011, iMAC and mini. Broadcom drivers will not install properly either.

You may want to use the link below to let them know that the actual drivers makes virtually any audio bluetooth device UNUSABLE:

I have found a work around to this issue. It may get your devices working until apple or broadcom adds the support they should have added some months ago:

Alternatives here:

Using MS stack:

Using 3th party BT stacks:
