BT phone control...

I got an email from Pedro - "After I saw there was not any applications to remote control the NXT from an ordinary java cellphone and many people were asking for it (there was only PC and PDA versions) I wrote one using an IDE called mobile processing. The app is still a beta version and only controls a bot but if I see that people are enjoying it I will put more work into it and implement a lot more functions :)"

Feel free to check it out here and give Pedro some feedback via comments. Thanks, Pedro, for submitting.

(You can also see the Pedro has developed some other NXT-related items...)

I tried it on my SonyEricsson k700i it didnt work. The phone and the NXT was connected and the brogram running but nothing happend. The GUI on the phone just shoved a grey screen, maby thats what it should do, but when i used joystik or buttons nothing happend. Plz make it work for SonyErisson aswell. :)

When the phone connected to the brick, did the brick beeped?

Monday i will have a SonyEricsson k610i to test and im sure it will work :)

Important Note: just turn on the cellphone bluetooth and run NXTSymbian (DONT connect true the cellphone software) just turn on the bluetooth a run the app, nxtsymbian will connect for itself.
When you open the app it must ask for you to press a key to begin the bt search for the nxt.

Maybe thats why you got a gray screen.

Pedro!

It works PERFECTLY!!!

Thank you so much for this app. I have a nokia n70. I am an absolute phone nerd. Everything I do is based around "how can i use this with my phone."

I bought this set to use with my phone. 70% reason why I bought the NXT set. I have been googling symbian bluetooth nxt every day since I bought the set. This is the ultimate umeronumero app for me. Please continue develpment of this app. Specifically, I would very much like to see one more control for actuation of 3rd motor (for attack, left/right steering etc).

Just wanted to pass on a huge THANKS for finally developing this app.

Thanks again,
Mike

Thnks :)
I added 3 triggers, keys * 0 #
They send bt message "cmda" "cmdb" "cmdc", you can use them in nxt-g the way you want to activate motors, play sounds whatever :)
They work the same way as "fwd" "rwd" "right" "left" etc.

I really can't make this work on my sonyEricsson. If someone can plz tell me what to do. I tried to turn on bluetooth on the phone and then run the NXYsymbian.jar just as writen above, but all i get is a grey screen, with an EXIT underneath that doesn't work. I have downloaded the .jar file several times and tried to push all buttons on the phone....What to do, i'm desperate.

Chill out, Dude! It may simply not work on an Ericson phone. Posting 2 comments on the same problem is overkill. If Pedro or someone else can help you, they will. Calm down.

Hi, Anonymous.

Sorry you got that response... some people consider duplicate posting/comments to be rude behavior if you haven't given time for someone to respond to the original post...

Hi There!

I've got an SE K610i phone. The program works, it finds my NXT, but I can't pass the "Enter port" screen.

Hi i have the same problem.
The program works, it finds my NXT, but I can't pass the "Enter port" screen. My cell phone is a Motorola L6.

I Hope you can help me

I have same problem. I've got an SE K510i phone. The program works, it finds my NXT, but I can't pass the "Enter port" screen, because no ports is found. When i try run NXTSYymbian near my PC with bluetooth dongle, it finds PC as device and what is more, it finds port and connection with PC can be established.

how do u put dis program on motorola l6

Tiba said...

I have a Motorola L6.
When I run the program it finds and connects to my NXT, but then it asks for a port and I don’t know what to do. It gives a list but I don’t know what I’m suppose to do. When I select one it says something about java runtime error -1.

Any help?
