BLE - Reading the connected device RSSI

Post by devnull » Thu Nov 07, 2019 3:06 am

Hi;

Yes, lots of questions about BLE, sorry about that.

While I can connect to the device and read it's service values, there's no service address for the RSSI.

So how can I get a connected device's RSSI value ??

We don't currently provide an interface for this (there's a low-level mechanism for this in the BLE stack though). We'd have to add something like ble.gap_rssi(conn_handle)

At the moment the only way to access rssi is during scan.

Can you please add a comment to https://github.com/micropython/micropython/issues/5186
