  • I Like the Fio so far. Did have a problem with wireless programing. I gave up and was able to successfully program via a FTDI board. With that success I went back to the wireless programing and solved that. My experience is that the XBee S1 boards must use enough power that the USB only power is not enough. With a battery in circuit even under charge I had no problems with wireless programing. This problem may only be unique on my computer’s USB power distribution. I used the setup utility to set the XBee parameters. Just a recommendation,if you are sure everything is setup correctly you may have the same problem. Add a external power source battery or regulated power supply.

No public wish lists :(
