I'm trying to use my new Arduino MKR 1010 WiFi as a Bluetooth Low Energy central/client, however I could only find information on how to use it as a peripheral/server (for example with the ArduinoBLE library, which only supports peripheral mode).

Is this possible? Maybe with a different library or firmware for the integrated NINA-W102 chip?

  • @EinSoldiatGott Unfortunately not. I ended up using the ESP32 which worked perfectly.

In case this thread turns up in a search, the ArduinoBLE library now includes central and peripheral support.
