Trouble Uploading Arduino Uno via Bluetooth Mate - avrdude error

Hey guys :) ,

I know there is a lot out there about this, but nothing that has been helpful to me thus far. I am trying to run an Arduino Uno via a Sparkfun Bluetooth Mate Silver but keep getting the following error:

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 10 of 10: not in sync: resp=0xec
Problem uploading to board.

However, when I use the Uno through USB, everything works just fine.

A couple of notes to consider before posting a reply:

1. I have tried pressing the reset button 10 sec, 4 sec, 2 sec and immediately before uploading and 2 sec, 4 sec, and immediately after uploading. 2. I have been using the exact setup instructions and code from this site. 3. I have tried restarting the IDE and the computer. 4. Everything is powered on and the bluetooth mate shows a green light to signal that it is connected. 5. I have the correct board and port selected, but when I click "Get Board Info" in "Tools", it says "Native Serial Port, can't obtain info". 6. I am using Windows 10 with Arduino IDE 1.8.3

I know that was a lot, but I want to give as much info as possible. Let me know if there is any more useful information I can send your way.

Thank you for helping! :)
