    I've been struggling for days about figuring out how to initialize the UART and linked it with a Bluetooth module. I got some notes with me but I can't seem to understand what they are trying to convey.

    I'm using PIC18F4620 for my Microcontroller.

    Anyone care to explain the basic concept of UART + BT ?

    Assuming it's the ubiquitous Bluetooth module that everyone seems to use at one point or another, it's a matter of using a UART interface to the device.

    See page 201 and on of the datasheet to figure out how to configure the EUART module.

    if your Blue tooth module is SSP compliant (like UART) , nothing special to do:
    use this module as an equivalent MAX322 connected to UART PIC
    and on other side ,PC computer as Master yo will have
    to valide ID number 1234 to attach (paired) this module
    and a virtuel com port to get all data like a direct link with a terminal.

    be carefull with level TTL 5V or 3,3V on PIC side
