After I got a report of a bit strange behavior of GPS-sensor I thought I could maybe have a look on the actual programming of it. After all it has a few years on it’s back and maybe could get an overhaul. It was not meant to be fully re-written but you know how it goes…
It’s now EX-bus
Sensor now works with full EX-bus. There’s pro’s and con’s on this, the main function of a sensor is to be fast to deliver values to system and EX-bus truly comes through on this. Old sensor connected to receiver with 9600baud and new version is now 125000baud, also there is no issues with differences on R- or REX-receivers. Update speed on transmitter is up to 4-5 times per second, so this is fast!
Downside is that hardware Jetibox does not work with EX-bus sensor, same goes for expanders, unfortunately. But in my minf the pro’s wins con’s by a big margin so this is how it is now.
What about my old GPS-sensor?
Best news ever: Just update! New firmware is fully compatible with old hardware and connections. You do not need to re-solder any wires!
RCT Jeti GPS-sensor release
You will find the new firmware on the re-worked GPS-page HERE. I released it as version 2.b meaning it’s a beta until I get some feedback from you guys! So let me know HERE in case of any issues, thanks in advance!
