Distance is limited. I lost the connection after about 30 feet.
If I had to guess, I think it is the cheap dongle I bought. I ordered a toshiba bt dongle, will see if that works better.
my PC has to be very close to the module to pair up
I played some more with BT and pairing yesterday, and it seems to be better now, maybe because I'm using a newer version of the Toshiba bluetooth stack.I think I can get up to maybe 10 feet away to pair, but it's not always consistent, sometimes I need to be closer.If you have a laptop, and can get close to pair, or bring your arduino close to your PC to pair, it works fine.And this is not the wireless IF for everyone. I think it works as a fairly low cost, close range solution.Randy
Hey guy thanks a lot!you solved my headache...this toshiba driver WORKSto send AT commands using duemilanove, I removed the atmega chip and swapped the tx-rx pins
Next time you want or need to send AT commands it's not nessesary to remove the atmega chip, just wire a jumper from reset pin to ground pin. That will isolate the chip but still allow the FTDI USB convertor chip to function.
