You can use the eb500 Bluetooth device to control Boe-Bot using your PC or PDA that has Bluetooth capability software.· You send over serial commands that allow you to control the Boe-Bot for direction.· Here is a link for the eb500 product:· http://www.parallax.com/detail.asp?product_id=30068
Here are some sample codes attached

What about the angle thing?

as far as your angle's are concerned, just experiment sending different pulses to the servos for different amounts of time. You can have some one help you make a 45 degree angle card board cut out to place on the floor for the boe bot to turn at for your exact mesurement. For wireless controll, you can download the IR comunications book off of the paralax website. It will teach you how to use an ordinary tv remote control and steer your boe bot wirelessly, its in the first chapter and its pretty easy, you can set a button press to do a sub routine that would make your exact 45 degree angle.
