    Trying to read beacons and also broadcast, but no dual Broadcaster/Observer?

      Hi all,

         

           I'm trying to use a PSoC 4 BLE module from the CY8CKIT-042-BLE-A (CY8C4248LQI-BL583) to read the signal strength of two non-connectable Bluetooth beacons which operate at 10Hz. I then want to do some on-device calculations, and send out a vector based on the signal strengths to another PSoC 4 module. 

         

       

         

           However, I can't figure out how to set up the Bluetooth so that it can both read advertisements and write them. I've tried numerous sample projects from the "100 Projects in 100 Days" put out by Cypress. For the "Day 10: Observer" project, it will read the beacons, but when I try to switch the GAP to anything but "Observer",  it stops working. There is no option for "Broadcaster and Observer" like there is for "Central and Peripheral". I have read that Central and Peripheral should have all the API's enabled, but that doesn't seem to be the case because it breaks the functionality of this code.

         

       

         

      Additionally, "Day 11: Central and Observer" seems like it would be exactly what I need, but it won't read the beacons because they're non-connectable, and I don't understand what I need to change to get it to read them. 

         

       

         

      Does anyone have any advice on how I can both read from non-connectable beacons and then re-broadcast an advertisement of my own? (it doesn't need to be connectable)
