LTE-M/NB-IoT Bluetooth Serial Port

+1 vote
Hello!

I'm trying to communicate with my arduino using the LTE-M/NM-IoT modem. I can connect via bluetooth on the phone app, and have paired with the device using my windows 10 machine. However I am unable to set up the device as a serial com port on my windows 10 machine. There is no option to pull up a serial port on the phone app (digi xbee mobile) either. Do I need to use micropython?

Hello,

The Bluetooth interface is not a streaming serial interface. It is primarily used, as of right now, for configuration only (at command frames).
It is possible to setup your own application to configure the XBee3 on your windows machine instead of the phone app.
You can read about it in the manual:
