Hi bluetooth aficionados!
So I just excitedly connected my FOCBOX to my bluetooth module for the very first time using this schematic:
VCC - 5V GND - GND TX - RX RX - TX
I got a flashing red light and all looks groovy. However my iphone can’t discover it BUT my laptop can. When my laptop detects it and I connect it shows it as ‘BT05’.
These are the modules I bought:
I’ve done a bit of research and there seems to be clones of the HM-10 called BT05 (amoung others) but they’re apparently essentially the same thing.
I’ve triple checked my connections but just cannot get my iphone (or any iphone in the house) to see it.
Have I been duped? The description says it connects to ios and the module looks identical to the others that people recommend on the forum but the BT05 has throw me and I’m wondering if these are the wrong thing or am I just being a dumbass?
I’ll take my board in to work tomorrow and see if one of the cool kids with an andriod can detect it but in the meantime would anyone have any suggestions? I’ve not come across this on the forum yet and I wondered if anyone else has encountered a similar thing?
Thanks in advance!
