I am running V2.5.0 SDK. I have a nRF52 DK board that is running the V2.5.0/nrf/samples/Bluetooth/peripheral_uart application. It is working beautifully. I have nRF Toolbox installed on my iPhone. I can connect to the nRF52 DK Bluetooth running the NUS UART service. I can send text strings back and forth from my iPhone to the nrf52DK baord. We have been using the nRF9160 processor for years and we are very comfortable with its operation. We have never used the Bluetooth feature on the nRF9160. I have a nRF9160 dk board that I would like to implement the NUS UART Bluetooth connection like I have running with the iPhone using nRF Toolbox. I want an application on the nRF9160 to search for BLE devices advertising the UART service. I want to connect to that BLE device and be able to send text string back and forth like I can do on my iPhone. I tried the "Bluetooth central UART" but it does not support the nRF9160 as a valid board.
what do I need to do to implement a simple BLE connection between the nRF52DK and the nRF9160DK so I can send text strings back and forth simulating a UART.I have not used any BLE functions until we received the nrf52DK board. I am sure it is operator error. Our application depends on the BLE capability to talk between an nRF52 and a nRF9160. any help would be greatly appreciated.
