what I'm doing is copping a graphical program from an arduino setup.
With an arduino you are only dealing with one file, making the whole thing easier.
An SD card wont work for me, the Netduino is berried in a computer case, also the design is all wrong.
All the plugins are located front and SD on the side. How do you access it in a enclosure. It would have to be located in a corner if you have one. Serial com. might be the only answer, but I'm trying to avoid a setup where I have a computer connected to it, when I'm only changing the settings once a month.That adds extra wires or converters ie USB - serial
Id go back to arduino it worked fine, but I need the multitasking multi-threading that only netduino provides.
Maybe blue tooth, would work IDK but then again how do I upload the program, you cant back to serial.
Seems like the only way to do this is with a serial com. with a USB - serial coverter.
Even if you had an easy deploy method, you would still need to have a computer attached at the time of the deploy. Not sure why Serial COM connection is any different. You can either get an FTDI cable and have it permanently wired to the ND and just plug into a USB port when needed, or by an FTDI card and have the Micro USB socket exposed that you can connect a Micro USB cable when needed.
The other option is to stick with a Standard ND not the Plus, and buy an SD Card module that you can leave the socket exposed. You can probably even do this with the Netduino Plus, although I've never tried two SD Cards.
