Using the Raspberry Pi

Postby dale smith » Fri Sep 14, 2018 3:16 pm

Hi, does anyone know if you can use the latest version of the Pi (3 B+) with formula allcode and Bluetooth. Bluetooth never connected with the Pi 3 and even disabling the on board Bluetooth and using a dongle didn't work.

Cheers

Hello,

Yes this should work ok on the Pi3, are you using Python?

Thanks for the info, I have some of the original Pi 3, but there was an issue with the Bluetooth 4.1 set up, did anyone find a work around? If not I will buy in some of the new Pi3's. Yes we want to use Python as the Language, it would be easier for use to use the Pi's than trying to getting the correct Python libraries distributed across the school's networked computers.

Regards
