Arduino noob here.
I am using an Arduino Duemilanove with Seeed's bluetooth shield. I have been able to connect to a PC correctly using the slave example that I got off of Seeed's wiki (http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/Bluetooth_Shield
) , but I have some questions about how to use the BT connection.1.)
Does the shield have to pair to the PC every time it is powered on? i.e. go through the:
"The slave bluetooth is inquirable!
Or does the connection only occur once upon initial pairing with a device (in my case, PC)?2.)
Meanings of the LED blinking?
I am pretty sure the alternating red + green led blinkings mean the shield is looking for a device to pair to.
When a connection is established, does the green light blink twice per second (flash flash, pause for rest of second)? That is what I have been getting.
The wiki page doesn't explain this very thoroughly and any information about shield's status LEDs would be very helpful.
I just ask these questions because, like I said, I ran the slave program and paired to the PC (entered the PIN and all drivers/such installed correctly), but can't tell if it is actually connected and talking or not.
Any insight/tips would be greatly appreciated.
