Need Help?
Our founding member, Peter, worked for Palm, Inc. While he was there he wrote several sample applications, including BtL2CAP and BtPiconet which are included in Palm's Bluetooth SDK. He has also written BtSerial and BtServer, the source code for which is offered below. If you have a Bluetooth project for the Palm OS and need a Palm OS expert on your side then please contact us.

HotSync and Internet access over Bluetooth
There are numerous places to get help on setting up a Bluetooth connection between your Palm and a PC. Try Dean's guide, Tek911, Palm Support, PalmInfoCenter or BrightHand.

Palm's SDIO Bluetooth card
If you are a Palm OS developer, click here for instructions on how to use the Bluetooth SDIO card.

Palm's SDIO Bluetooth card on OS5 devices
Many people have asked about using the SDIO card on PalmOne's Tungsten|C, Zire 71 and others. It is up to PalmOne to develop and release the drivers, but since the development costs won't cover the increase in sales it probably won't happen. Here's why we are unable to help:
  1. The Bluetooth SDIO transport driver needs to be ARM-native (developers are unable to write ARM-native applications)
  2. Documentation on the Bluetooth transport driver interface is not available to developers
  3. It is possible to extract the Bluetooth files from the Tungsten|T - but distributing them would require Palm's permission. Even then, a new transport driver would need to be written to handle the SDIO interface
We suggest that you contact PalmOne and request that they support the Bluetooth SDIO card on OS5 devices.
