Think I have my bluetooth scan working now

It's started scanning regularly and putting out a log file, like


[CHG] Device 00:17:xx:xx:xx:xx RSSI: -72
[CHG] Device DC:4C:xx:xx:xx:xx RSSI: -88
[CHG] Device 00:17:xx:xx:xx:xx RSSI: -92
[CHG] Device DC:4C:xx:xx:xx:xx RSSI: -100


So that's a device ID and an rssi value in decibels, that I can kind of convert to a distance. This is the distance from just one raspberry pi but if I can set up three of these in known locations then I can triangulate I think, and set up my live marauders map...

Pay Day tomorrow, time to buy two more raspberry pis!

Ah of course I need to be logging timestamps in there too.

Aha remembered my issue there was that I had swapped my sd cards around, and I did not have raspbian jessie in the raspberry pi 3 at that point. You need the latest version of raspbian with all updates. Probably best to start again, download and burn a new version of NOOBS and when your pi is up and running

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

and all should be good...
