I have just purchased the above mouse - when I install the software (so I can use the tilt wheel) on my MacBook, the install asks me to insert the USB device into the MacBook - since this is NOT a USB wireless mouse, but a Bluetooth mouse, how do I proceed with the install?

I have exactly the same problem--and it's a little disheartening that someone asked it five months ago, with no answer yet posted.
The mouse came packaged with Mac driver software, but it's incompatible with Mac OS X 10.6... which was released a year and a half ago.
I note that the V470 page on the Logitech site ( http://www.logitech.com/en-us/428/3287 ) carries a Software Downloads link ( "Download installation software, drivers, updates and more."), the only download associated anywhere on this site to the V470. That link takes the user to the download page for a version of the Command Center software that only applies to USB mice. In other words, the V470 page invites customers to download driver software that does not work for the V470.
I get the distinct sense I wasted my money buying this mouse.

I'm having the same problem, folks.
What makes my case strange is that I'm replacing a v470 that was damaged. Up until the damage, my old one was super easy to set up and use. No problems.
Now my brand spankin' new one won't connect at all. Nothing.
Indeed, it does look as if Logitech has decided to ignore this mouse. Thanks alot, guys. ;(

That Control Panel referred to in a recent reply doesn't state that it's for Bluetooth devices.
I recently bought a V470 and installed Logitech Control Center v3.3.0 on two different Macs with OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.7. All I see is "No Logitech Device Found". I thought that with Mac OS X, Bluetooth devices are automatically discovered - this one isn't. Annoyingly, when I boot with Windows 7 on one of the Macs, the mouse works! The mouse package states "Made for Mac" - it doesn't work with Macs, but does with Windows.
