I seem to remember that Luke Dubois got this working once. But it’s
not a tested (or, likely, supported) application of the serial object.

Thanks for your reply Jeremy!
You can now add me into the list of people who tried with success a
bluetooth communication with [serial] !

-I’m using the eb500 bluetooth card with a Basic Stamp 2.
(http://www.parallax.com/detail.asp?product_id=30068)

-Need the computer’s bluetooth address to get a connection with the eb500.
We can get it with the "ifconfig " command on the osX Terminal.

-If "ifconfig" command don’t give you the info, try a bluetooth connection
with your computer and another computer. The other computer will find and
show the address.

-Need to create a RS-232 bluetooth serial port with the "bluetooth serial
utility".

That’s it!

Ho! And if you’re using a Keyspan serial-to-USB interface for the BS2
programming, unplug it before starting MAX. Unless the eb500 won’t
connect.

Works pretty well. More reliable than a RF antennas.
