You can edit the constant CFG_GAP_LOCAL_NAME in projectconfig.h under the nRF51822 folder to change the DEVICE_NAME characteristic.

Accepted Answer

For some reason limits length to 8 characters, but I can write more with Android application (BLE Device Monitor).

Hello there, I am new to MBED and I would like to expose the DEVICE_NAME as a writable characteristic , which I am guessing needs to be in the gap object , but I have no idea how to achieve this. Thanks in advance!
