This thing is slick. I’m using it with an Arduino Uno and using only the serial interface. Unfortunately, the long term stability of the serial connection is poor. I’m not moving a lot of data (it’s a remote temp monitor), but at some point the serial communication just goes corrupt. I can dup this with software serial and Arduino serial pretty reliably, as well as with a usb xbee explorer and direct serial.
The solution (or my solution) is to constantly put the thing to sleep. Connect, send your data, sleep. Repeat. Once I figured that out, this thing has been solid.
Also, I’m not using the Wifly library. That was actually more trouble that it’s worth. The device is easy to configure and run with the native commands.
No public wish lists :(
