Flora + Bluesmirf

Hiya

I am trying to send sensor data from Flora to my laptop via bluetooth with the Bluesmirf Gold. Is this supported? Things say I am connected but I am not actually receiving any serial

Thanks

The BlueSmirf is a Sparkfun product, so I doubt anyone here is an expert with it.

Debugging from the 10,000 foot level, it sounds like you're getting a radio connection but the devices haven't done the protocol handshaking necessary to exchange data. Something like that is mentioned in the device datasheet ( https://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Wir ... oth-um.pdf ) as a security settings issue.

Other than that, about the best I can do is point you to the SparkFun Bluetooth tutorial: https://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/67 and this project where someone uses the device to connect to a robot: http://www.lynxmotion.com/images/html/build125.htm
When you void a product warranty, you give up your right to sue the manufacturer if something goes wrong and accept full responsibility for whatever happens next. And then you truly own the product.

Thanks. Still haven't gotten a hand shake - going to have to try lilypad and xbee to finish the project
