|JY-MCU Bluetooth Breakout Board|
No luck. I could not see the Bluetooth module from my phone or from my Mac. Why?
A little searching and I came across Erich Styger's post (Getting Bluetooth Working With JY-MCU BT Board v1.06)trying to figure out the same thing. He is way more advanced than me but he found both a hardware solution and a software solution. Since I did not want to modify the board (and I was sitting at Starbucks hooking this up) I went with the software solution.
The sort answer was, to get the Bluetooth module to start broadcasting for pairing I had to add the following to my Sketch (code for the app):
Erich also has a great article on Using The HC-06 Bluetooth Module which I am digging through to understand my Bluetooth module a little better.
