  • Yes I agree see my comments on the problems with this board and what you can do about them http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/FioV3/index.html

  • Yes there are a number of design flaws with FIO V3, see http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/FioV3/index.html for details. I am currently writing up a project that overcomes most of these, cutting tracks + extra components

  • As mentioned in the tutorial, the Arduino add files on do not work for Arduino V1.5. I have fixed this and put up a set of files that work with Arduino V1.5.5

    These are available from http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/FioV3/index.html

  • Warning!! DO NOT run the standard BLINK example if you have a battery connected to this board. The output of pin 13 is connected to the output of the battery charger chip STAT and THERE IS NO CURRENT LIMITING RESISTOR.

    Excessive, damaging, current will flow when one output is high and the other low.

    Standard Arduino boards add a current limiting resistor between the two output pins when this situation can occur, such as with the RX serial pin.

  • I have put up this tutorial in how I configured this module using FioV3 or via adhoc network http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/FioV3/index.html

  • I have put up a tutorial on setting up the RN-42XV bluetooth module for serial communication with the FioV3 board at http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/FioV3/index.html

  • I have put up a tutorial on setting up the RN-42XV bluetooth module and the RN-XV wifi module with this board at http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/FioV3/index.html

  • don’t think RN-XV echos chars, perhaps you have local echo turned on in window’s telnet.

  • I could not get adhoc to work from by android phone, gave up and used access point

No public wish lists :(
