Bluetooth Device Presence RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are attempting to optimize our system and one of the rather computationally expensive routines we have identified is the process by which

    we attempt to re-connect to a paired Bluetooth device that may have been out of range or switched off.


    Presently we attempt to open a Bluetooth serial port and form a serial data stream every 10 seconds using the following function call:


    HANDLE hCommPort = CreateFile (L"COM0:", GENERIC_READ | GENERIC_WRITE, 0,…) 


    Can anyone think of a way of detecting the presence of our paired device before attempting to open a virtual com port?
