    My small hardware to RR

    Ok, one photo of my definitive hardware to use with RR:
    oevery 57 minutes for once of 3 minutes, so the data don't lose him memorized in the RAM memory of the GPS, it resolves the problem that immediately starting the PC the infos is had on the position) and the reader of temperature with for DS18B20 instead of the kit to be purchased, perfectly compatible with RR, everything built home made.
    To the voltmeter i use one P12F675 , and to reader of temp. use one P12C509A ,two uP by Microchip.
    When Guino implements the voltmeter with RR and I will have made a will embedded,i publish the material (it already works however it needs to make the sw in VB to integrate with RR, Guino it already knows this thing) the reader of temperature and already everything ok.

    EDIT:if someone wants to make the sw to the place of Guino in VB, to decrease you job (i am not a coder of VB but an "electronic man" ) you contact me in PM, then we pass everything to Guino

    Very good!
    I'm very interested in the voltmeter (seperated from temp.), temperature I got by MBM...
    But sorry, I can't help you with coding too

    In enclose a new file .txt saved with Yperterminal for my volmeter hardware as you have asked me.

    The data / coefficient and:


    600 = 11,78Volt

    11,78 : 600 = 0,0196363 (number of coefficient)

    Com port settings:
    2400baud No parity ,8bit ,1stop bit

    Thanks

    Ok, I've added support for the voltimiter.. just add the followind line to your RR.INI:

    vcomport=<COMPORTNUMBER>

    if you use RRConfig afterwards, it will erase the line (since there's no support for it yet). Once you've added that, you should edit a skin and add a LABEL with the code "VOLT1" and it should display the corrected voltage. If you by any chance can modify your board to measure multiple batteries, you can output the data in the same format just simply change V1 to V2 etc.. I've built support for up to 4 (Four) voltage readings. I know for a fact many people have more than one battery, so it would be very helpful for those if it is possible to do it.

    Mauri is going to make everything available to make at home, but I assume you'll need some knowledge of eletronics to buid it... I for one wouldn't mind ordering a pre-built one if Mauri agreed on making/selling them..

    OK, not sure what exactly it is... I kind of picked up it keeps GPS position for a quicker lock, and then what does the voltmeter/thermometer come in???
