Firmware Upgrade/update Fails simpleRTK2Blite

cjmssmd asked 2 months ago

I am attempting to update firmware on simpleRTK2Blite.  I have the blue xbee header attached and am attached to my computer via USB. U-Center talks to the device fine, I am getting GPS readings, etc.  When I run the firmware update I get the following logfile.  What am I doing wrong?  Thank you!

(In case it helps, the same firmware update worked just fine on my simpleRTK2B board. Same .bin file, same procedure, etc. – worked fine).

I got it to work by changing the baud rate to 115,200 on the firmware upgrade screen
