Given that my embedded Gadgeteer hardware is actually embedded in a sealed pressure housing, a wireless debug connection would be really useful. Based on the posts I’ve seen on this forum, it looks like this is doable with Bluetooth on a serial port. That sounds good to me since I already have one serial/Bluetooth connection that I use for data transfer to a PC using a pair of these http://www.sena.com/products/industrial_bluetooth/sd1000.php . Before i start down this path I just had a few questions.
is debugging over serial/Bluetooth a realistic scenario, i.e., is it as stable as debugging over the USB port?
I tend to use a lot of Debug.Print messages. I can easily generate a couple KBytes/second of debug messages that I review after my app finishes. My Bluetooth gizmos have a max baud rate of 115K. How much of that bandwidth is already taken up by debug overhead and how much might I reasonably expect to be available for my debug.print messages?
Has anyone seen a straight wireless USB adapter (not necessarily networking over USB) that might work for debugging?
I’m using a Spider board but would also be interested in doing this same thing on a G120HDR.
