Connecting an Android Phone App and a Micro-controller (e.g. Arduino) via BlueTooth is very easy.

What is not easy is sending text to a Desktop PC (64bit) that's fitted with a Bluetooth USB Dongle from an Android phone.

I just need to pass plain text data to a PC program written in PB.

Has anyone done this?

Talking to myself - found a programmable dongle which looks promising: Silicon Labs BLED112 8)

@IdeasVacuum: what are you planning to do with it? I'm asking because I'm working on iBeacon and EddyStone stuff right now.

Hi Dige

It serves two purposes. On site collection of data on an Android smartphone, shared later with a Pure Basic program on Windows 7/10. Also going to use it as a dongle, to discourage the use of the PB software on more seats than those paid for.
