bt_set_name() and setting local name #ble #bt #bluetooth #api
I want to change the ble device name during runtime. I've enabled BT_DEVICE_NAME_DYNAMIC and BT_SETTINGS.
To change the device name during runtime i'm using bt_set_name(). However, when scanning for the device using the nrf connect toolbox app on my android device, i still see ''Zephyr'' as the device name. Only after connecting with the device, i see the correct new device name that was set by bt_set_name().
The bt_set_name() works, but not the way i would like to. Is there a way to show the changed device name before connecting with the device?
Most smartphones implement some sort of advertising data caching. Try stopping and starting scanning from the phone a couple of times to see if the name is updated without the need to connect.
