Power for blue tooth dongle

If I correctly read the user manual, the blue tooh dongle cannot be powered directly by the Sport SX. Is this correct?

Bluetooth dongles generally can't communicate directly with the Sport SX due to a limitation in the USB port. You need a USB 2.0 hub in between. The hub should be powered. It may work without power but the port on the Sport is only designed to handle the standard 500 mA and you have to factor in the power used by the hub and the dongle at the same time.
