First off, you guys Rock! I have had so much productive fun with BP and I just got it a few days ago. Here is a little thing I did to make a project weigh less.
When you are prototyping GPS M2M you don’t always want to carry your laptop outside to get a signal. My boss discovered me pushing a cart loaded with my laptop/protoboard/GPS and BP rolling around the parking lot yesterday.
Looking around my cubical I realized that I had an OTG cable lying around. I grabbed my smart phone and after a quick download I was able to loose the cart and laptop completely.

Thanks M2M! Via the forum.

    So that’s basically terminal SW for Android for using USB Virtual Serial Port? Where can you pick that up?

    Thanks Dieter,
    That looks great – now all I need is to update my phone and that will come in very handy I’m sure :)
