Found couple of fairly inexpensive Bluetooth modules based on CSR chipset that do Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and connect to uC over TTL, however the cheaper variety supports only "slave mode", which the more expensive (almost double the price) variety supports user selectable "slave" or "master" modes.
My use case is to transfer information (bi-directionally) between a uC performing data-logging and an Android phone. Preferably, a pairing should be done once, or very infrequently. Following that, a connection should be established automatically, everything Android phone and the uC+BT-module are in range. Once connected, I'd like an application on Android to pull the data from the uC, and send back few commands, s.a. clear the SD-card, place "read-time" and "reader-signature" in a access-log on the uC.
I've read somebit about Bluetooth, but probably not enough. My present challenge is to know for sure, if a "slave" module will serve my purpose, or I should go for one which can switch to "master" mode, as an option.
Also, wondering if the module should be able to support RFCOMM and SPP, or is it that RFCOMM alone would suffice?
