    \$\begingroup\$ It depends on what you mean by XBee. XBee is a communication protocol specification, like Ethernet. Your XBee implementation (module or chip) may have a UART or not. \$\endgroup\$ – angelatlarge Apr 3 '13 at 16:48

    \$\begingroup\$ I think most XBee modules use some sort of serial interface, but yes, OP needs to specify which specific device is intended for the application. \$\endgroup\$ – Adam Lawrence Apr 3 '13 at 17:28

Here's what you're probably looking for.

Provided you have another xbee somewhere communicating to the one plugged into your PC, download the drivers for that board, open up a serial terminal, set the baud rate to 9600 (xbee series 1 default) and away you go!
