Question about arduino and Tx,Rx pins
« on: March 26, 2009, 10:45:01 AM »
I want to connect a GPS and BlueSnurf to "arduino Duemilanove"  at the same time.so, can I  connect the gps to RX(pin 0) and TX(pin1) and connect the BlueSmirf to pin2 and pin3 and configure them as TX,RX ? is that possible ? if it isn't possible,is there another way that will make this possible ?

Yes this is possible

Also, if you need more check out the multiplexer from sparkfun.com

You could in theory have around 16 serial connections
