RS-232 to bluetooth adapter

Postby harnas » August 13th, 2017, 6:36 am

I've found in Amazon a cheap serial to bluetooth adapter. I think the concept of this device is a great idea. If this works correctly, it would make my Altair wireless, and I could even use a terminal software in my phone or tablet.

I even have in mind installing this internally, so it would look better and could take advantage of the computer's power supply.

Did anybody use this before?

Sorry, I forgot the link. This is the one I saw. After my initial post I purchased it, and I should receive it today. I'll write again when I'm able to test it.

EDIT: I guess that test will have to wait. I received this adapter but I'm afraid is faulty. It powers on but it's not detected by any of my devices. I contacted the seller and I'm waiting now for his answer.

It's a pity - the idea was good...
