  • Can this be used in direct sunlight? If not, any alternatives that would do the trick?

  • Then what is the use of having "open source hardware"? I am willing to compensate them for the use of the software, but they don't even want to discuss this / a custom design by them because we would be ordering less than 250 pcs…

  • Is the boot loader used in the controller the default version or has it been custom developed? Also, it would be great if you could add the quiet mode feature of the MP3-trigger: getting the trigger status back over the serial port was very helpful in my project!

  • The SPI interface on the MEGA is connected to other I/O pins than those on the MP3 shield. So, if you want to use it with that board, cut pins 11,12 and 13 on the header and wire them to the mega board directly:
    11 -> 51
    12 -> 50
    13 -> 52
    Took me half a day to figure that one out... but now it's working.

No public wish lists :(
