List of android device working with BC118

Hi there

I bought a couple of BC118. If I have no problem pairing with an iOS device, I’m in trouble with Android devices.
I tried to pair with a OneplusOne but I cannot see it among available Bluetooth device and to a Nexus 7. With Nexus 7 is a bit more difficult cause even if the chipset is BLE 4.0 Google never certified it as such. We are working on it.
My question is, there is a list of Android devices that for sure have no problem connecting to the BC118?

Thank you

Ro

Hi,

No there is not but with BLE devices you do not pair directly with it you need to use an app. If you download the Melody smart app from the play store, open it and hit referesh then you should see it.

Hi Matt
thank you for your reply. However, I know about the Melody Smart App. It doesn’t work on my Android devices. With OnePlusOne I receive an error of communication. The Nexus 7 doesn’t find any BLE device.

Ok for that I cannot help as I do not have a Nexus 7, sorry.

Hi,
I need to connect to a bluetooth terminal application for any Android. Does the BC118 module only connect to your melody smart app?

@sistemas,

I would not recommend using the BC118 for a new design the product is still in production so fine for existing designs but I would think that given its age its day are numbered with limited support for both unit operation and firmware updates (i.e. none).

With regards to connecting to Andriod via BLE, you need to connect via profile of some description, we have pre defined our smart profile and given the code to allow customers to develop an app using this profile so it reduces the workload. If you don’t use this then you need todefine your own profile which can get complicated.

Hi Matt.
I understand what you say.
But what is the smart profile and where can I get it?

Matt which model would you recommend for a new design?

@sistemas,

Unfortunately we do not have a BLE only device any more but the BXis a pretty good choice depending on what you want to do. It also gives you other options given it also have BT classic and WiFi (which can be turned off as required).
