Can you do a project using the Pico W and Bluetooth. I would love to use the bluetooth but am not sure how to start a project with it.

If you search Bill's YT channel (@dronebot-workshop), you will find several Bluetooth videos with links to written articles with instructions. These are older so will be Bluetooth Classic. Simply replace the processor Bill uses for a PICO W.

I had a quick look at available PICOW sample sketches and found quite a few. See attached pics.

You may need a different library. Not sure if Bill covered BLE.

Good luck

Arduino says and I agree, in general, the const keyword is preferred for defining constants and should be used instead of #define

Actually I think a Pico W Bluetooth video is a great idea. After all, the Pico W initially didn't have Bluetooth, so I never covered it, and it works a bit differently than some of the other boards.

Suggestion accepted!
