I’ve got Bluetooth working to a GPS by:

Find Address of device

sudo hcitool scan
Scanning ...
00:02:C7:22:64:CA BTGPS 2264CA

Connecting to device

pi@pi7:~ $ sudo rfcomm bind /dev/rfcomm1 00:02:C7:22:64:CA

Display Data

pi@pi7:~ $ cat /dev/rfcomm1
$GPGSA,A,1,,,,,,,,,,,,,50.0,50.0,50.0*05
$GPRMC,003908.856,V,0000.0000,N,00000.0000,E,0.000000,,310121,,*03
$GPVTG,,T,,M,0.000000,N,0.000000,K*4E

Just got my PI3

The wifi appears as wlan0. I added the following to /etc/network/interfaces
and it connected

iface wlan0 inet static
address 192.168.1.21
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.254
wpa-ssid "Hilton"
wpa-psk "xxxxxxxxxxx"

You can probably set it up via a gui if you prefer.

I haven’t investigated Bluetooth yet, but my recollection from playing with
it before is that it is a bit more complicated

Maybe I need to wait for a kernel update??

But does anyone know how to find the Bluetooth and wifi on board the Pi 3.
And how to configure them???
