I have created a database accessible by an Android app that stores GPS waypoints. You can insert waypoints into the database by clicking on a Google Map or writing them out. I have created Bluetooth capabilities in the app that can relay GPS cordinates, either of the phone or from the DB.
But how can I write a python script that reads from the bluetooth dongle I have in the TELEM 1 port of my Pixhawk? I have spent this whole Sunday trying to connect the App with the board. I have not yet even connected my phone with the bluetooth dongle I bought from 3DR. However, I have sent the GPS information from my phone to PC over bluetooth.
I know there has to be a way to serially read the inputs of the TELEM 1 port with a python script.
If anyone would be able to help me read Bluetooth data from the TELEM 1 port through a Mission Planner script I would be very excited to report how it all works.
