    [APP] BrickController2

    BLE became standard with Bluetooth 4.1, but some bluetooth 4.0 devices also have BLE

    OK, so here's my first question: why would I pay for an app when there is already a great free alternative available?

    @Lok24 no timeline has been provided, just a heads up that this is in process

    it's currently in BETA and going through app store's approval process
  5. Looking forward to hearing what you liked best. We're also starting to compile articles for our next issue, so if you want to pitch an idea or proposal send me a PM!

    @Tcm0 not at this moment, but the expectation is that it will in a future update
  7. The EV3 doesn't use BLE either, but "standard" Bluetooth.

    LEGO Education SPIKE Prime

    Yes. An email was sent out to everyone who had pre-ordered SPIKE Prime explaining that the product launch has been delayed to 2020 According to that email: At LEGO Education, we hold ourselves to an exceptionally high standard for quality in everything we do and we want to create the biggest possible impact on the students learning with our products. With that in mind, we’ve decided to adjust the expected launch of SPIKE Prime to early 2020 to ensure the new product meets that high bar.
  9. Bummer! That would be a feature request then. Since @Lok24 says it can be achieved with a raspberry (a link would be cool, pictures even cooler!) could this also be implemented in the W10 program?

    Using what software? The Powered Up app won't allow it.

    Have you confirmed that? I was under the impression the possibility to update the firmware on the WeDo 2.0 hub made it impossible for that hub to recognise and deal with components that were developed later

    Have you updated to the latest version? Stability has improved over time...

    You are right in part. The app needs to do the connecting, bit a lot of people se to default to the old way of doing think and try to connect to the hub from the BT config screen of their OS. If that happens there may be a conflict between the OS trying to connect at the same time as the app, resulting in interference which makes it difficult or even impossible to successfully pair the hub with the app. I've seen this happen in so many cases it has become a kind of "have you turned it off and on again" kind of mantra.

    I am confused. You can write a python program but can't check the BT connection on your Windows computer Just open your BT connections from the configuration panel and check if the hub is listed (probably with its MAC address). Right click and choose forget device.
