I have read a few tutorials and Im under the impression that you have to take out a chip from the arduino to program the xbee.
Can i program the bluetooth module with the xbee explorer thus removing the need to remove a chip from the arduino?
I have a sparkfun xbee shield and it has a switch on it, im sure i read somewhere with that shield you dont have to remove chips?
Also my laptop doesnt have bluetooth so Ill need a dongle of some sort, which ones would people recommend, there is a £5 one in protopic but I dont know if its reliable as ill be using my device in a house, at least 20m and through some walls.
XBee != bluetooth
ok so you are saying the xbee explorer will configure an xbee but not the bluetooth module?
