WT-32 Bluegiga..

Hooked up the WT-32 Bluegiga breakout from Sparkfun and got it working sorta. Paired it with my phone and got A2DP with autoconnect working. Verified analog audio comes out.

Sadly it only has iWrap 3.0 on it which is missing some of the features I need (AVRCP). Will try and update the firmware to 4.0 this weekend and hopefully get it interfaced to a AVR/Arduino for prototyping.. Or make a small brick...

The next project..

I liked my iPod. But my Android phone with bluetooth and a subsonic backend media server kinda made it irrelevant.

So it's time to bring the iPod adapter into the new world.

I have two ideas:

Integrated Bluetooth A2DP and AVRCP control with the Pontiac G8. Use wheel controls to play/ff/rev a Bluetooth device. Display playing track info on the DIC. I have all the parts, just need to spend some time putting them all together.

Cemublue - Yep. Take the E&C bus cassette emulator and bring it into the bluetooth world. Should be almost easier then the G8/GMLan solution!

Have decided on using a bluegiga WL-32 module as the bluetooth core. Will update with progress (I hope there is progress!)
