Connecting Gyroscope and Arduino to PC via Bluetooth

Hi,

I have an issue connecting my bluetooth modem - BlueSMiRF Silver to my bluetooth adaptor. I am trying to take angular measurements from the gyroscope wirelessly and it comes up with this error (See below). I will appreciate any support please!

I have an issue connecting my bluetooth modem - BlueSMiRF Silver to my bluetooth adaptor.

Links, schematics, and photos seem to have disappeared from your post.

This might have nothing to do with gyro or Bluetooth, so have you tried just a blink programme without them? It could be that you have the wrong board selected. I seem to recall people getting this with the USB3 port.

My question is what does this error mean? I have attached the code I used to run it. The wiring is fine, the bluetooth adaptor has paired with the bluetooth modem but when I run the code, it does not seem to work.

You're not running the code because the errors are telling you that it can't be uploaded.

Hi Nick_Pyner,

What is a blink programme? would I have to buy an LED?

Many thanks,

Blink must be around somewhere, probably included in the IDE and no, it uses the on-board LED. I believe your Arduino is imprperly installed, and you should start over. With a bit of luck, you have never installed the board properly, never loaded or run a programme, and your Arduino came with Blink pre-loaded. So you might look and see if the LED blinks when you apply power.
