Need help with purchase
« on: October 01, 2018, 08:48:16 AM »
Hello again...  :D

I'd like to save some money if posible at all.

I already have an Arduino Mega (working knock-off version)... question is:

Can I purchase the LBB Shield and pay some extra money to get the Bluetooth support and Android App (and all the other extras included in the stand-alone version)?

I don't know if this combo is possible and/or if it would save me enough money to make it an attractive option, otherwise I'll just  wait to save some more money and purchase the stand-alone in a few more weeks, I just can't afford the full stand alone version now...  :'( :'( :'(

Cheers!

It really depends on what you want at the end, if you just don't care what it looks like, surely you could figure out bluetooth and add it on, and put the code on it. I really don't care.

However a lot of effort was put into making a stand alone box that is enclosed, arduino ide compatible, and 100% fully bluetooth capable (ie programming from your laptop and uploading code).  If for you the difference is a week, I would err on the side of patience. Things always work out when you wait.

I had to put an intermediate board between the lil'bb and the Mega because you need to reroute some pins, like for SPI and frequencymeasure...

I figure I will wait and save some more... It's not like I need to start tinkering with the actuator just now. My project is still in an early stage. I'll go with the full stand alone version then... Thanks.
