    IDBlue is a RFID reader that sends what it reads through bluetooth to a host.
    This is the homepage for the latest model, i have an older one: IDBLUE - Home

    I want to make an android app that gets what IDBlue reads. I'm using the android 2.1 api bluetooth classes and as the device requires SPP conection, the following UUID: "00001101-0000-1000-8000-00805F9B34FB"

    I've the following problem: after making:

    btSocket = device.createRfcommSocketToServiceRecord(UUID.fromString("00001101-0000-1000-8000-00805F9B34FB"));

    i try to:


    This point the app crashes and raises the following exception: Service Discovery Failed

    Does anyone know why this could be happening ? Thanks ;)

    I'm Derrick, a senior developer with IDBLUE. Just wanted to let you know that we are currently working on Android support for our latest R8 product (the older R7 is no longer supported). Our APIs hide all the work in connecting and communicating with the device, and provide you with an easy interface so you can get up and running with minimal effort.

    Without getting into too much detail, our Android API could be considered to be at an early "Beta" level and is currently undergoing testing. If you would like further information on this and on the R8 product, please send me a private message via this forum with your email address, and I will get in contact with you.

    Thanks for using IDBLUE!
