  • I am having a slightly different problem due to the shield protruding onto the power and USB jacks when installing into an Auduino project enclosure (PRT-10088). The top cover of the enclosure will not seat down completely. I haven’t powered anything up yet, so I may end up with the same TX and RX problem you are having. As for a solution, I am considering filing out a small notch in the edge of the XBee shield so it clears the USB jack housing, then filing off the top of the power connector housing just enough to allow the XBee shield to sit down a little more. This is an indication the XBee shield design is not very professional. I am not happy about this. Does anyone at SparkFun have any better solutions?

No public wish lists :(
