That would be a great idea, supporting many possible outdoor use cases. I can imagine that it would also be possible to integrate a 3G modem into an extension module specially designed for the XDK. But there are no official plans in that regard, yet.
Regarding your Beeinformed project, would LoRa be a possible solution to extend the range? If yes, then this article might interest you.
Kind regards, Franjo
I am always glad to help. Again, thanks for your hint.
Unfortunately, I have no further information about the BLE functionality. Currently, only the most common peripheral mode is available. It is able to provide a sensor and bi-directional data exchange service that fits for most of the use cases.
I am really sorry but I can not make any suggestion, if there will be any change in the API in the future. Nevertheless this topic remains on our improvement list and I will discuss it with the team again.
I hope that helps.
