Appreciation Post

I just know you've been putting so much effort into all of this and it's very obvious in the quality of everything you are currently putting out. I just wanted to say I appreciate it a lot and keep it up!

On an off note, are you still going to provide fritzing sketches to show us how everything connects in actuality without your custom pcb?

Thank you, Brandon.

I really appreciate the kind words and support. Yes - I will be providing all the schematics, .sch, .brd, and fritzing files, and code as before. I'm still doing a little catch-up. I expect to have this all online by the end of the week.

Thanks again!

As always your work is much appreciated by us lesser mortals mate. I assume in my case there is no rewiring to do just a wipe and code update when it's released?
Jonduino said Mar 30, 2016 12:09:29
Thanks Bryan. Correct - anyone that assembled based on the earlier schematics (v2) do not have to rewire. D2 and D8 should already be connected.

This is the guy who is always busy, but he finds time for us, replying for noob questions!

:) I was a noob too!! (still am in many regards). No worries! I'm happy to help.

Ok, library included, now I can upload it to my Arduino but I have another query.

Your previous statement is not strictly correct then I assume. Without replacing my display it doesn't work, everything appears to operate but I have no display at all so no menu etc. I can tell it goes into the menu by the little led on the arduino itself and I can adjust the RPM led's brightness but no display.

Shall I just go back to 2.1 or is it an easy fix?

Hi Bryan,

You are correct - v2.4 supports a new display type (TM1637) - I'm 99.9% done with the new code for the old display type and will likely have that online tonight. (Sorry for any confusion).

So to recap -

v2.3 - updated code for old display type (99% done)
v2.4 - updated code with new display type

Hi Jon,

Ahhh, my bad, I had assumed you just skipped v2.2 and 2.3 altogether. Great news and I wait with baited breath.

Jonduino I just joined. I wanted to say thank you as well for your hard work. Ive been looking for a shift light for my mini cooper and had no luck. Hopefully this will work. Pls let me know as soon as you have Kits available so that i can purchase mine.

Best regards

Thanks for stopping by! I plan to have more parts in stock in a day or two. Please check back at the end of the week and I should have a decent stock.
