  • It works great save for one kind of important feature - there is no access to the DTR pin without having to do some work which means there is no way to save power by putting the XBee to sleep. That's sort of important for battery operated scenarios and would have been nice to see.

    I can make it work, but having to do the 5V -> 3.3V conversion is a bit of a pain. Throwing an extra logic level converter on the board to connect to DTR would have been lovely. To get around that for now, I'm going to use this: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12009 but it's turning things into a bit of a frankenstein (I also have a weather shield and a terminal block shield attached to the Uno.

No public wish lists :(
