  • In the code it says PWM A is on pin 10, but it’s on line 3 as is mentioned in the product description. Don’t forget to change the code :)

  • Well I can’t get this to work. I tried everything listed here. Some help would be greatly appreciated. I made a post here: http://forum.sparkfun.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=22883.
    Can someone write up a quick how-to on setting the baudrate to 9600? I definitly have a version with baudrate 115200 set.
    Otherwise, how can I change this module to use the normal RX/TX pins?

  • Is this product coming back in stock any time soon? :)

  • You can get this shield to work with the Arduino Mega. For those who have tried and failed, here is how. You do not need to change anything software-wise.
    The SPI pins for Arduino Mega are located elsewhere (pin 50-53 instead of 10-13). Simply bend out pins 10, 11, 12 and 13 on the shield so that they do not go into the Mega. Stick the shield in. Put a jumper wire in the headers of pin 10-13 and route them as follows:
    Shield pin 10 –> Mega pin 53
    Shield pin 11 –> Mega pin 51
    Shield pin 12 –> Mega pin 50
    Shield pin 13 –> Mega pin 52
    This applies to all SPI shields.
