Upload the Code

Code upload

Open up your Arduino IDE.

Connect your USB cable to your PC and Arduino board.

Please ensure that the TX and RX for the Bluetooth module is not connected. If this is connected then the code upload will fail.

Copy the code below to a new Arduino project and Click the upload button
