Is there any way I can see the data being transfered to my PC Bluetooth from my Android device ? Something like a Bluetooth Terminal in Android but in Ubuntu. I am sending Strings and some simple data from my Android Device and I would like to see them in Ubuntu Terminal.

Thank you


hcidump Install bluez-hcidump

We can monitor raw HCI data transmitted from or to a Bluetooth device with hcidump from the package bluez-hcidump:

hcidump [-i hciX] [--save-dump=<file>]

If no option is given hcidump will assume the first device available. Otherwise we need to specify the device we want to monitor (e.g. hci1). If needed we can optionally dump the traffic to a file specified with option --save-dump=.
