Hi everyone. This may sound like a silly question but Is there a way to Bluetooth connect to ez-b v4? I am using Bluetooth for several of my items on my robot such as a Bluetooth speaker. The Bluetooth is connected to my computer now. This gives it a different range than my wireless local network. If it would Bluetooth I could also feed my iPhone through the robot. I also have a ez-b v3 that I could hook up for that function but i would prefer to trade that one in. Any ideas?

Steve, I say your hack of the ez-b to provide sound out from the ez-b. I looked very promissing. I had seen it a while back but didn't want to do anything to my ez-b that could negatively affect it. Great idea. Thanks for the help.
Hey dude. I don't quite get what you mean by that. I know you know about the mod, but using the breakout mod and essentially hard wiring (not using the speakers Bluetooth connection) from the EZ-B to the Bluetooth speaker with headphone socket, your essentially extending or replacing the EZ-B speaker, so not quite understanding what you mean by the EZ-B will have nothing to do with the Bluetooth speakers, because with the mod, it kinda does. *confused*

All using speech recognition and speech synthesis. My robot does all this using the EZ-B and uses the same voice for all its responses.
The reason why I hesitated to mention this though is because one draw back is, if you want to connect another Bluetooth device to your robots B/T speaker such as the iPhone that Ellis mentioned at the same time, you would have to keep manually swapping the connection when that device is used. A lot of Bluetooth speakers can only handle one device being connected to it at any one time, although there are some that can handle multiple devices too.
I'll back out now and do other more productive things.
It sounds like a possible way to go. What sort of WiFi/Bluetooth are you thinking of using?
Sorry. I pressed send before I finished writing. *eyeroll*
What I was going to say was you may run in to issues connecting the WiFi/Bluetooth device you mentioned and your iPhone to your B/T speaker at the same time like I mentioned in post#22, as you may need to keep swapping device connections. Check the specs on the WiFi/BT device to see if it can handle multiple devices connecting simultaneously. Otherwise this may not be the fix your looking for.
If you did decide to use the breakout mod, it does away with the need to use a third device, so less peace of hardware, and one less device to charge/charge batteries on. Something to think about.
I will keep everyone informed how the system turns out.
Yeah please do. I'd like to find out what solution you end up using, and how well it works for you.
And, your welcome. Glad I could help.
