  • how is delivery of data guaranteed (if it is at all)?

    I believe some level of retransmit/error correction is done by the Bluetooth stack - it seems pretty reliable for code uploads anyway

    Is there any sort of flow control available that can he used for this?

    Not yet, so you'd have to implement your own. Espruino itself can implement software XON/XOFF flow control on Serial, but so far that hasn't been extended for use with Bluetooth.

    Maximum characters that can be send at once is 20 I think?

    Yes. If you're sending from Espruino then it will automatically 'chunk' everything for you. When you're sending to Espruino then yes, you have to split at 20 chars.

    Is there a way to increase the MTU at the moment?

    There's a branch of the code that implements this (­e/increased_mtu) but it's not merged yet as it permanently uses a chunk of RAM and I need to decide if that's a good idea or maybe whether there's a trade-off (eg. 100 byte MTU rather than the full amount).
