Today I bought HC-06 and it work @9600 pbs. So can you post code how to change it to whatever it need . I try change delay but same results.
Glad it works with HC-06
Please scroll up to reply #15 and download the HC-06 config tool

I own HC-05 and HC-06 cards and they both work flawlessly @57600bps

Did you make any change in "Option for advanced users" ??
Let me know your current settings for
 - Refresh interval
 - Time out count
Please reply

@ n3kx

I just downgraded my HC-05 board to 9600bps and could reproduce your situation  smiley-evil  smiley-evil  smiley-evil

Please modify demo sketch as follow:
in void loop()  line #3               change  "delay(5);"   to   "delay(2);"
in void loop()  last line             remove  "delay(5);"

Did you make any change in Option for advanced users ??

even on version 4.0 it works Arduino receive joystick data as button data no problem. But datafields doesnt change there are always showing XXXX
Interesting
Android to Arduino communication is OK
Arduino to Android communication is not wired correctly

I have this type of Bluetooth: ...
The link is broken, please double check and let me know

Which Arduino board do you use ??
Can you post a photo of you setup ??
Did you modify the actual demo sketch ??

My model is HC-05 and it work @9600bps
Although this is not the cause of your problem, 9600bps is too slow for the data stream and generates transmission errors

I strongly urge everybody to set speed @57600bps

Depending on your specific model, I can post a tool for this adjustment

@n3kx

Base on your responses, problem is the  BT card  to  Arduino board  serial connection
Is your BT card HC-05 or HC-06 ??
let me have a link to your specific model
You may reverse TX and RX cables just to make sure, this will not harm anything
Did you actuallly check you BT card baud rate ??  they usually default to 9600bps
Have succesfully used this card for other projects ??

Can you see the scrolling Joystick values in the Serial Monitor ??

I am having intermittent problems connecting from Android to Arduino via HC-05 module and very rarely get data from Arduino to Android
Can you be more specific, I would expect the App to always work or always fail... smiley-roll smiley-roll

Is there a correct boot up sequence between Arduino and Anroid or doesn’t it matter?
No, doesn't matter

When I changed the baud rate in AT commands I used AT+UART=57600,0,0 – is that correct?
Yes, make sure you have entered the Command mode
I just prepared a sketch for my new HC-05 board.
Will display
 - device name

// RX BT board pin to Arduino D3
// 5V BT board pin to Arduino 5V
// GND BT board pin to Arduino GND

Also I think I may have a mismatch of Wiring diagram/ino code/Android app. Can you email me details of where I can get the latest drawings/codes etc.
Bluetooth TX connected to D2 and RX connected to D3
Joystick bluetooth Commander V4.0 is here
AndroTest V1.3.ino is there

Please answer the 9 questions as per above

I use your basic sketch and your app, but under datafields in android is only xxxx
Not a lot of additional info's   smiley-wink

Carefully review those 9 questions and answer YES/NO

Android side (smartphone/tablet screen):
1) go to Option/About and confirm that installed version is V4.0 (or higher)
2) can you move the joystick and display position at bottom left
3) are you connected ("connected to: XXX", green text)

Arduino side:
4) are you using AndroTest V1.3.ino (or higher)
5) are Bluetooth TX connected to D2 and RX connected to D3
6) is your Bluetooth card already configured @57600 bps  (most are 9600bps by default)
7) is your Bluetooth card LED solid red or green  (blinking = not connected)
8 ) is your Serial monitor configured @57600 bps

Finally:
9)  your serial monitor should anycase display:
           AndroTest V1.3 - @kas2014
           demo for V4.X  (6 button version)
   does it ??

- any additional information ??

I think the best way to control the sabertooth would be with R/C.

Sabertooth board:


Connect
- Arduino PWM_R  to  Sabertooth S1
- Arduino PWM_L  to  Sabertooth S2
- Arduino Ground  to  Sabertooth Ground
Don't forget dip switches setup

Can't test the code, let me know if it works

Without encoders, you won't have much torque at low speed
Look here for additional info's

How will you control your Sabertooth board ?
 - Analog
 - R/C
 - Serial

Are your DC motors fitted with encoders ?

Arduino is connected to a Dagu quad driver board
You can also get, on eBay, a dual L298N based controller at a much cheaper price

@Maudey
Thanks for the feedback
I edited reply #182 based on your comments
Please post an App screenshot, together with your screen size and resolution
This will help me optimizing App display layout

What BT brand are you using ??
Most boards default to 9600bps, which is a bit slow
I strongly suggest to boost your board @57600bps


 @tolisn63
Did you try the on board mini router ??
I hardwired connection between IP camera and router and still have to observe any noticiable lag  smiley-cool
72  Using Arduino / Networking, Protocols, and Devices / Joystick BT Commander V4.x - Communication Protocol - on: May 13, 2014, 10:04:18 am
Total RC commander is the "video aware" version of Joystick BT Commander V4.x
They both share the same Communication Protocol with Arduino


Communication from Android to Arduino                   (or to any microcontroller)

- Joystick information:
Joystick data is transmitted as an integer = 2 Bytes (Most Significant Byte + Less Significant Byte)
according to this data frame:
         <0x01  MSB-X  LSB-X  MSB-Y  LSB-Y  0x00>


This is the relevant Android (Java) code snippet from Joystick Bluetooth Commander:
Code:
    final int XvalB = Xval + 200;
     final int YvalB = Yval + 200;
     if((((Xant!=Xval) || (Yant!=Yval)) || (mTimeoutCounter>=mMaxTimeoutCount && mMaxTimeoutCount>-1)))   // joystick position changed, or timeout occurred
     sendMessage( new String(new byte[] {STX, (byte) (XvalB / 128), (byte)(XvalB % 128), (byte)(YvalB / 128), (byte)(YvalB % 128), ETX } ));

So, for Xval=0 Yval=0:
  XvalB = YvalB = 200
  XvalB / 128 = YvalB / 128 = 1
  XvalB % 128 = XvalB % 128 = 72
Data frame:   <2  1  72  1  72  3>

for Xval=100 Yval=100:
  XvalB = YvalB = 300
  XvalB / 128 = YvalB / 128 = 2
  XvalB % 128 = XvalB % 128 = 44
Data frame:   <2  2  44  2  44  3>

The data frame is send via BlueTooth to the arduino board and decoded.
This is the AndroTest V1.3.ino code snippet:
Code:
void getJoystickState(byte data[5])    {
  int joyX = (data[1]<<7) + data[2];
  int joyY = (data[3]<<7) + data[4];
  joyX = joyX - 200;               // Offset to avoid
  joyY = joyY - 200;               // transmitting negative numbers
 }


- Button information:
Each time an android button is pressed, the following data frame is transmitted
                <0x01, buttonState, 0x00>

buttonState is transmitted as a Byte value and reflects the state of the pushed button
Button #1 ON:  1    Button #1 OFF:  2
Button #2 ON: 3    Button #2 OFF: 4
Button #3  ...

On the Arduino side, data frame is decoded in getButtonState()
Code:
void getButtonState(int bStatus)  {
  switch (bStatus) {
// -----------------  BUTTON #1  -----------------------
    case '1':
      buttonStatus |= B000001;        // ON
      Serial.println("\n** Button_1: ON **");
      // your code...      
      displayStatus = "LED <ON>";
      Serial.println(displayStatus);
      digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);
      break;
    case '2':
      buttonStatus &= B111110;        // OFF
      Serial.println("\n** Button_1: OFF **");
      // your code...      
      displayStatus = "LED <OFF>";
      Serial.println(displayStatus);
      digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);
      break;

// -----------------  BUTTON #2  -----------------------
    case '3':
      buttonStatus |= B000010;        // ON
      Serial.println("\n** Button_2: ON **");
      // your code...      
      displayStatus = "DEBUG <ON>";
      Serial.println(displayStatus);
      DEBUG = true;
      break;
    case '4':
      buttonStatus &= B111101;        // OFF
      Serial.println("\n** Button_2: OFF **");
      // your code...      
      displayStatus = "DEBUG <OFF>";
      Serial.println(displayStatus);
      DEBUG = false;
      break;

    ....
}



Communication back from Arduino to Android:

Arduino code
Code:
void sendBlueToothData()  {

  ....

    mySerial.print((char)0x2);                                             // Start of Transmission
    mySerial.print(getButtonStatusString());  mySerial.print((char)0x1);   // buttons status feedback
    mySerial.print(GetdataInt1());            mySerial.print((char)0x4);   // datafield #1
    mySerial.print(GetdataFloat2());          mySerial.print((char)0x5);   // datafield #2
    mySerial.print(displayStatus);                                         // datafield #3
    mySerial.print((char)0x3);                                             // End of Transmission
  
  ....  
}


 Data frame transmitted back from Arduino to Android device:  (by default, every 1000ms)
< STX   Buttons state   0X01   DataField#1   0x04   DataField#2   0x05   DataField#3   ETX >  

example: < 0X02    001011    0X01    120.00    0x04   -4500   0x05   Motor enabled   0x03 >

Button state:
This is a six character string reflecting the Arduino state for buttons position
button #1,#2,#4: ON, all others: OFF   >>>  001011
This feedback avoid any discrepancy with the Android device button state
An Arduino Reset will reinitialize the Android buttons, Two way communication is mandatory for "clean" control
Button state string is created in the getButtonStatusString() function.

Code:
String getButtonStatusString()  {
  String bStatus = "";
  for(i=0; i<6; i++)  {
    if(buttonStatus & B100000 >>i)      bStatus += "1";
    else                                bStatus += "0";
  }
  return bStatus;
}


Datafields:
Data is transmitted as ASCII characters using Serial.print()
Numbers are printed using an ASCII character for each digit
120.00   >>>   0X31, 0X32, 0X30, 0X2E, 0X30, 0X30

So  < 0x02     001011      0x01      120.00     0x04      -4500      0x05     Motor enabled     0x03 >
is actually transmitted as
     < 0x02,   0x30,0x30,0x31,0x30,0x31,0x31,   0X01,   0x31,0x32,0x30,0x2E,0x30,0x30,  
        0x04,  0x2D,0x34,0x35,0x30,0x30,   0x05,   0x4D,0x6F,0x74,0x6F,0x72,0x20,0x65,
        0x6E,0x61,0x62,0x6C,0x65,0x64,  0x03 >

In the Androind BT commander I observed some information under Data1 and Data2 (not under Data3)
Interesting

IF
- Data1 cycles from -3000 to 0 with 111 increment         (see GetdataInt1)
- Data2 cycles from 50 to -50 with -0.8 increment        (see GetdataFloat2)
- Data3 shows "xxxx"

THEN
Arduino to Android communication is OK
Android to Arduino communication is not wired correctly

When I push any buttons they only got activated (green) a very short time
Makes sense, Arduino will always feed back its own real buttons position and overwrite the Android display

Assuming you have the "Master/Slave" model:
 - make sure the switch is in DAT mode
 - place the TX jumper on pin 4 and the RX on Pin 5
 - change "SoftwareSerial mySerial(2,3);"  to  "SoftwareSerial mySerial(4,5);"

Should work smiley-wink

What does Arduino pin #2 and #3 means?
Digital I/O #2 to be connected to TX pin from Bluetooth module
Digital I/O #3 to be connected to RX pin from Bluetooth module

...but it doesn't work. Any ideas what to do?
I need more information to make a clever guess smiley-wink

I understand you are already seasoned with V3.1 and AndroLEDV10_3.ino

Android side (smartphone/tablet screen):
1) go to Option/About and confirm that installed version is V4.0 (or higher)
2) can you move the joystick and display position at bottom left
3) are you connected ("connected to: XXX", green text)

Arduino side:
4) are you using AndroTest V1.3.ino (or higher)
5) are RX/TX connected as per above
6) is your Bluetooth card already configured @57600 bps  (most are 9600bps by default)
7) is your Bluetooth card LED solid red  (blinking red = not connected)
8 ) is your Serial monitor configured @57600 bps

Finally:
9)  your serial monitor should anycase display:
           AndroTest V1.3 - @kas2014
           demo for V4.X  (6 button version)
   does it ??

- any additional information ??

Please advise


@all
Please confirm V4.0 works OK for you
