Greg,

I also tried different ways fro bluetooth proximity detecting but never could find the perfect solution. I like to give your code a try as well. Is it in the SVN ?

Nico

I have put together a stand alone xPL application that will scan bluetooth devices as well as attempt to ping devices in a list supplied by a mysql database table. This lets you run multiple versions of the application for better location detail. It has been a while since I worked with it and there are separate Mac and Linux versions. Not sure I have much time to do anything with it in the near future. If there is any interest let me know.

Thanks,
Greg
