Grove is a modulated, ready-to-use tool set.
Much like Lego, it takes a building block approach to assembling electronics.

Hello Ken,

From this line:

Code: Select all

#include <NewSoftSerial.h> //this is a must
It looks like you are using the wrong libraries and/or maybe outdated example code.

I recommend using the unified driver I posted. Also remove the above reference to NewSoftSerial.h. It's not required in Android 1.0 when using the unified driver.

See elsewhere on google if you need instructions on how to install (driver) libraries into the Arduino application.
