Description: This module from Roving Networks is powerful, small, and very easy to use. This Bluetooth module is designed to replace serial cables. The Bluetooth stack is completely encapsulated. The end user just sees serial characters being transmitted back and forth. Press the ‘A’ character from a terminal program on your computer and an ‘A’ will be pushed out the TX pin of the Bluetooth module.
Note: These modules have been revised to remove three unused RF pads from the bottom of the module. For more information on what pads were removed and why, check out the change notes below.

Decent range, our lab is ~ 50ftx80ft with LOTS of interference/bookshelves etc. and this works smoothly anywhere within and even to some extent outside the front door. communicating between a dsPIC33ep and a desktop at 921k baud works great with low latency. I bought 2 more after evaluating the first one.
Works great with every terminal I have tried. Very easy ti use. Make sure it is bypassed well though, relatively high current on TX.
The SMD module was easy to place on SMD pads by hand and was re-flowed using a Whizoo DIY reflow oven. Works well when connected to a XMEGA Xprotolab as a wireless serial link.
