My project displays axis data from the MPU 6050 to the serial monitor but the app doesn't see the HC-05 Bluetooth module I'm using instead of an HC-06. The phone sees it and I tried renaming it on the phone to HC-06.

Can anybody help me?

You cannot rename on your phone

Hi Pete,


The android application is programed only to connect with devices named as "HC-05". If you are having a HC-06 then there are two thing that you can do to make it work.

Renaming Bluetooth module:

Yes, renaming the Bluetooth module will work but you cant do it form your phone. The HC-06 has to operatign modes, you have to get into the command mode and use AT commands to rename the Bluetooth module.

Changing the processing sketch:

 Other option would be to change the code, find the name "HC-05" in the code and simply replace it with HC-06. This will make the application to connect to any device that has the name HC-06. But you should set up the Processing android mode in your computer to be able to compile and upload the program.

If you are in a hurry the easiest way it to get a HC-05 itself, I think you can easily fin one in your hardware store.
