I have bought and set up a HC-50 Bluetooth Module with my Arduino Uno.
The Bluetooth module acts as a serial device when data is transmitted or received to the Arduino and has nothing to do with its set up connection to the computer.
I’m using Windows 7 and when I try and discover the Bluetooth module I can find it and pair with it.
However it doesn’t seem to keep the connection long and I have trouble sending any data over the Bluetooth Serial Link before it decides to disconnect. If I do get to send data over it once then I turn the Bluetooth module on and off it doesn’t seem to want to connect again without removing it then discovering and adding again.
I want something more versatile and I’m building a product that needs a sustainable Bluetooth connection and be easy to set up.
I started using ‘toshiba bluetooth stack’ a program made by toshiba that helps with connecting Bluetooth devices to your computer. This finally allows me to connect my Bluetooth module to my computer and works well.
However toshiba only created this software for its hardware and you must pay for it. You can get a cracked version however this is not ideal for a product that is going to be sold.
Does anyone have any ideas or any Bluetooth suits that would work for Wndows, Mac OS and Linux?
Thanks In Advance,
