Hi cmf12. RS232 adapter is not compatible with old version 1.0 of simpleRTK2Blite. It’s only compatible with version 1.1. Which version do you have?

Our apologies, maybe there was a mistake in the factory. If you could send us an e-mail to info@ardusimple.com my colleagues will find a solution for your case.

Hi cmf12. I just checked with my colleagues again. My mistake. Forget what I wrote, RS232 adapter is compatible with version 1.0. The difference between version 1.0 and 1.1 is just a manufacturing difference, performance is the same, we are still shipping both versions. My colleagues received an e-mail from you, you will be contacted to finish this investigation.

Wrong soldering on the mainboard. I resolder and now OK.
