Streaming data with the serial object via bluetooth?

    Hi! I want to use a Bluetooth device to send Data from MAX to an Microcontroller via Bluetooth using the serial object. With a cable using the USB output everything works fine, but Bluetooth communication is very slow. I think the problem is that the serial object sends one byte after another:
    "It transmits data by taking a byte (an integer in the range of 0-255) in its inlet and sending it over the selected serial port."
    Bluetooth needs to establish a connction for each byte.. which makes it very slow. The solution is to send a bunch of bytes (in my case 48 bytes) at one time. But how should I manage it?
