Arduino Pro Mini 3.3V HC-06 Bluetooth Module

Hello from Japan!

I'm trying to make a cheaper arduinoBT using the Pro Mini 3.3v and the HC-06 Bluetooth Module.
The problem is that verification stage fail after upload
I hope you will be kind to bear with the info below.

Many thanks in advance!

  • OSX 10.6.8
  • Using a directory copy of the BT bootloader
  • Uploaded modified boot loader to Pro Mini 3.3v
  • Modified boards.txt
  • Uploading via bluetooth seems to work (using verbose upload)
  • After upload verification fails
  • Uploading programs via USB ISP is OK!
  • Restoring original Pro Mini 3.3v Boot Loader NO PROBLEM
    .

avrdude done.  Thank you.

Do you have the bluetooth module connected when you try to upload?

Bluetooth connects to the serial pins and that causes conflicts - the program is uploaded over those pins.

For development it's easier to connect the Bluetooth module to some other pins and use SoftSerial.

Hello Fugus,

Thanks for the Reply. Yes it is already connected and working properly. I an upload the ASCII example sketch via SPI and get a valid output via HC-06 output. :slight_smile:
