    I am new to this and has jumped on Brandons offer to put together a kit.

    I understand that it is you, Robby, that has done most of the reverse enginering and is also the one that has made the pic code. (Excuse me for not reading all the posts. If I am wrong my intension is not to offend anyone)

    However:
    I've just been hit bad by PhoCo going into the grave, so I am a bit cousios. Will you make the code available, Robby? What I want is the possibility to make changes in case you do not support it anymore, and also to be able to upgrade if needed.

    If you plan to go commercial I think that making code available will make product stronger. Not copied. :-)

    Or is the code so simple that code is superstable?

    (great work btw)

    As far as I know Robby has reserved the rights to produce the PICs with its code inside. He'll sell them for a symbolic price (about 30 euros). Look at the second page of this thread for more details.

    Don't worry Bes, it will not happen what happened with PhoCo.
    The device has been tested for about a year and half without any problem, then I doubt that it will need a bugfix.
    Also, the firmware of the PIC sends to the PC, through the USB port, the raw data received from sensors, so any improvement can be easily done by changing the software that runs on the PC side (that is opensource).

    Anyway thanks for appreciating my work

    Sorry if this is a daft question , but here goes.

    I have ordered a 5 sensor kit , and 4 extra sensors as i have a set of off roading wheels and tyres.

    Have all these sensors got unique codes?

    Can they all be programed at once ..and will just work when i swap my wheels over ?

    Would i have to get the system to learn each time i swap my wheels over ?

    Thanks

    Yeah, I think it'll have to be re-learned...

    Question on this project...

    Do you need a driver to load on Windows when the USB device detects the board?

    Does the 5V off the USB power both the board and the receiver?
