What's the latency when connecting wirelessly?

Thank you!
I recentst purchased the Lpk25 wireless.
I love this small keyboard especially in combinaties with my ipad because connecting iT is a breeze and it is extremely portable.

Onlusten one thing frustratie the hel out of me and i can't get it solved and i'm looping for help: i connect this keyboard over Bluetooth to the ipad for example Garageband (or any other app that support midi and midi sync out) and i put the Lpk25 wireless in external sync it just don't get the midi clock signal !
