How to properly connect the RN41XV to the Arduino Uno

Hi guys, I am new the world of arduino, really electronics in general, and I am having trouble hooking up a RN41XV to the Uno. I attempted to connect them once and i fried the Bluetooth chip and as I am new I’m going to chalk it up to me not understanding the datasheet, can anyone explain how the two are supposed to be wired? I can’t seem to find an actual image depicting the two in a schematic. All I am doing is trying to hook up the two to have basic communication in and out over bluetooth

Do you have something cool like this : https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11600
Please give a link to your product.

That is exactly the one

The Uno is a 5V board, and that RN41XV is a 3.3V module. Do you have something in between ?

I do not, the uno has a 3.3v pin is it not 3.3v? If not that explains why i blew the first one.

I attached an image of the arduino for reference, the 3.3 is right next to reset

I was assuming that you need to convert all the signals.
With something like these:

This project uses an SD shield that suitable for XBee: http://ipv6poclab.org/2014/01/13/motion-sensor-via-xbee-connected-arduinos/

However, I think something very simple like this, might just be enough:

I don't know what will happen if you connect a 5V SPI signal to the XBee :~

That's actually exactly what i was looking for (I'm using an xbee breakout board to connect to the bread board), I'll try it once I'm home for the day!
