I have some questions about the scan response packet.
Thanks in advance,
Yes - the scan response is more usually used in things which are connectable than aren't, but either works.
I don't know where you read that, it's not true, you can change every piece of data in the adverting and scan response on a constant basis if you like, have a scan response, not have one later. Whether the device scanning you manages to handle and report all those changes is up to the device scanning you.
possibly not - but it's trivial - just encode the scan response in the same way you encode the advertising data and then add the encoded data to the p_sr_data and srdlen of the sd_ble_gap_adv_data_set(). Or if you're using the Advertising and Scan Response encoder library, one layer higher, the unencoded data into the last argument of ble_adv_data_set(), p_srdata, if if you're using the entire advertising module, ble_advertising_init() with a non-NULL p_srdata second paramter.
Thanks for the reply! One final question if I am using the manufacturing specific data then SIG states that the company identifer be the first 2 octets correct?
it does so state. Nothing forces you to actually do that but in generally it's recommended that you do, especially if you ever want it to be a 'real product' or use it with any kind of standard scanning central which will read and interpret those two bytes as the manu id.
Can you provide some code, please?
How to setup a scan response is included in this tutorial.
