I am a bit confused with assigning pins for SoftwareSerial. So I have Mega ADK board and a Bluetooth Silver Mater that I want to connect. I've seen examples of SoftwareSerial using pins 2-13 no problem. However, I have a motor shield which uses up those pins.
So I thought ok I'll just use other pins. Know, I've found that on mega, there is only a set of pins that you can use
Not all pins on the Mega and Mega 2560 support change interrupts, so only the following can be used for RX: 10, 11, 12, 13, 50, 51, 52, 53, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69
So at first I was a bit lost with 50-69 pins. But then I worked out that ok 63 = 15(RX3), 64 = 14(TX3). So I plugged the TX,RX pins into 14,15 and I thought of we go right?
No matter which pins I use, nothing gets received.
Can I not use these pins because they for Serial3? I am not using Serial3 anywhere.
Thanks in advance.
