Reading from Bluetooth weirdness -->"unknown(net_rim_cldc,80)"

When I read an input string from a Holux GPS puck the return value gets weird. BB JDE v4.3.0.1r


When I cast the byte to a char and convert to a String using String.valueOf() the end result is always: "unknown(net_rim_cldc,80)"


//Invoked when data has been received.
public void dataReceived(int length){


byte buf[] = new byte[256];

StringBuffer stringBuffer = new StringBuffer();

int len =0;

if((len = btPort.read(buf, 0, length == -1 ? buf.length : length)) != 0){ stringBuffer.setLength(0); for(int i=0; i<len; i++){ char ch = (char)buf[i]; String st = String.valueOf(ch); //here is where the value of st equals "unknown(net_rim_cldc,80)" if(st!=null && !st.equals("")) stringBuffer.append(st); }


String currentInfo = stringBuffer.toString();

//the value of currentInfo equals "unknown(net_rim_cldc,80)" }



The value of the byte array (buf) after the read =



Has anyone seen this before?


I open the port like this:

btPort = new BluetoothSerialPort(btInfo, BluetoothSerialPort.BAUD_115200, BluetoothSerialPort.DATA_FORMAT_PARITY_NONE | BluetoothSerialPort.DATA_FORMAT_STOP_BITS_1 | BluetoothSerialPort.DATA_FORMAT_DATA_BITS_8, BluetoothSerialPort.FLOW_CONTROL_NONE, 256, 256, this);
