Melody 5.0 Released
BlueCreation releases Melody 5.0 for BC127 with the most advanced features
Melody 5.0 adds new advanced differentiating features and even increased interoperability
Cambridge, UK - July 15 2013 – BlueCreation today announced Melody 5.0, the most complete certified firmware for its BC127 module. Melody 5.0 adds the ability to be a Cable Replacement module for Data but also Audio (A2DP Sync, HFP-AG and Bluetooth Low Energy Central) and adds the Message Access Profile (MAP) for access to text messages.
Cable replacement for Data but also Audio
BC127 can now be a source. This means that one can now use 2 x BC127 and connect them to each other. They will then receive and transmit data received over the serial port to each other (Data Cable replacement) but also Audio received and transmited from the analog or digital interfaces (Audio Cable Replacement). In addition, a BC127 can connect to any wireless speaker or headset and forward music to it acting as a source or a mobile phone.
Message Access Profile (MAP)
Message Access Profile (MAP) allows to receive any text message from any iOS device (or Smart Phone with MAP profile) using the Bluetooth Link. The Bluetooth device can then display the text message on the accessory so the user is notified without the need to use the phone.
In addition to this additional functionality, increased interoperability testing means that Melody 5.0 will work seamlessly with a wider range of devices and connect to Applications reliably using the Melody Android and iOS Applications libraries.
