bt_set_name() and setting local name #ble #bt #bluetooth #api

Hello,

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?

Kind regards,

Jamie

Hi there,

 

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.

 

Regards,
