    Well, the sparkfun website in like the 3rd post said "In the datasheet, you'll find that the default value of the PIN is "default".". So there you go.

    oh yea.

    Well then why would they call it a PIN instead of a password?

    Don't ask me

    But yeh, if the default pin is default, then why can't you have a really long one consisting of ASCII characters?

    dont see a reason why not, unless they limit it to text only, or text and numbers only.

    Yeh, it shouldn't be limited to only text and numbers.

    For cell phones, how would they interract with the BT? wouldn't you have to load up a JAVA app every time to communicate with the BT?

    depends what you mean by comunicate.

    The two BT devices can probably identify each other as part without a java applet. It's probably a feature of the hardware.

    But if you want to send a message or do something usefull, that would require something higher order like a java app.

    or so I think. not sure.

    Well, I know that the two will see each other, and say unlock the doors, but what if you wanted to pop the trunk or start the car remotely? From what I remember, Java takes forever to start

    If you use a cell phone, then probably.

    I'm sure there must be a hardware solution though. At the very least a microchip/asm combo. I need to read the datasheets.

    So much reading to do....so little time

    Yeh... I wonder if you can assign a key to a program. That would be really sweet. So hold down 5 and it would start the engine or something...

    Yeh, you'd need to make hardware that would communicate with the chip independently of the computer.
