New version 1.1 Released June 8, 2007!
The RFCOMM Bluetooth extension from Handheld Competence allows you to
develop applications for Palm OS with serial functionality using
Bluetooth Wireless Technology. Without the need for establishing and
maintaining the Bluetooth connection between a Bluetooth equipped Palm
OS device and a Bluetooth device with RFCOMM functionality, the
developer can extend existing applications or develop new applications
which offer serial functionality to the user.
New in V1.1: a Bluetooth discovery crash problem on the Janam XP30 is resolved.
This driver offers all the required functionality for RFCOMM
- Initialise Bluetooth RFCOMM connection as master or client
- Discover Bluetooth devices
- Get the device address and the device name of the selected Bluetooth device
- Set the address of a Bluetooth device, to avoid a time consuming discovery process
- Establish a connection
- Get the state of the Bluetooth connection
- Send and receive data
- Disconnect from Bluetooth device
A full featured sample application is included, which has been created with
the Satellite Forms MobileApp Designer Version 5.23.
An evaluation version of RFCOMM Bluetooth is available!

The evaluation version
is fully functional to allow testing it in deep detail. After each
function call an evaluation message box will be displayed for
approximately 2 seconds. Whereas most functions will display this
information each time calling it, some of the functions will display the
evaluation message box only after a period of 90 seconds has expired.
This allows you to subsequently call these functions in short
This extension is manufactured and supported by Handheld Competence of
Germany, and is marketed by PalmDataPro.com. The RFCOMM Bluetooth
extension includes a royalty-free per-developer runtime license, meaning
you can distribute the extension PRC files royalty-free with your app
but you need to purchase a separate license for each SF developer
(basically the same as the Satellite Forms IDE license).
