Connecting Arduino Pro Mini via Bluetooth

Post by Davis » Thu Jul 06, 2017 11:10 am


I have an Arduino Pro Mini and a BT Mate Silver that I would like to transmit sensor data through. My bluetooth device is giving a green light to show a connection, but whenever I try to run even simple Arduino programs, such as "blink", the program stalls out and fails. And currently I have the Bluetooth Mate directly plugged into the Mini, pin for pin. So, do you have any advice on:
1. Simple programs to test this connection.
2. Wiring issues I may be having.
3. What type of data can or can't be sent via Bluetooth connection.

Thank you so much for the help. And let me know if I can provide any info to make answering this question easier!
