The Bluetooth module used is the Bluegiga WT11, iWrap version (details and datasheet on the Arduino page). The Bluetooth module can be configured with commands set over the serial port from the ATmega328 (see the iWrap user's guide for details). A program to set the name and pass code of the Bluetooth module is run once on each Arduino BT. The name is set to ARDUINOBT and the pass code to 12345. For complete details, see the initialization program's source code. The ATmega328 comes preloaded with a bootloader that allows you to upload sketches to the board via the Bluetooth connection. The bootloader source code is available in the Arduino SVN repository.
