Bluetooth not working on a Raspberry Pi 3

Hi everyone, I just made a car with a RasPi 3 and a L293N, I want to use bluetooth because I want the signal go direct from my phone to the car. But it doesn’t connect at all. The Raspberry Pi does pair with my iPhone but the Blynk app doesn’t recognize it and there are no activities on the Raspberry Pi at all.

Raspberry 3 bluetooth is not supported yet.
But, you can run both Blynk client and local server directly on RasPi :wink: Hope that helps!

Hi @vshymanskyy I already try local server on Pi and it does work but how can I control the GPIOs with my phone?

Use a wifi network?
How big is the car? It could have its own wifi LAN that your phone and the RP connect to.

Edit
Maybe you are asking about the RP client?
You can run a server on the RP but you can also run a ‘client’ that will give you control of the GPIO pins. I have not done this so can’t give any advice but there is documentation.
