In Topic: Sending SMS via GSMshield (icomsat v1.1)...return error

Also, I'm not 100% sure about this, but I believe you need to send Carriage Return AND Line Feed (vbCrLf) over the serial connection.

Please note that after powering on the SIM900 (using pin D9), you need to WAIT till you get a "CALL READY" message before using any commands that use the SIM card. It is written in the IComSat manual.


This usually happens around 7-10 seconds after powering up the SIM900.

Oooh... makes sense. Thanks for clarifying :)

In Topic: SD Card and other SPI devices

Well, just as I suspected, the problem with writing to the SD card was totally caused by me  :lol: . It all works perfectly now. Just need to treat it with care. I implemented a Queue which everything writes to, then a dedicated SD card thread simply processes that queue at its leisure at regular intervals.


Having everything try to write to the SD card (even in different files) just like it always worked on desktop hard disks just didn't give the sort of reliable results that I could feel comfortable with.

In Topic: Are my netduino 2s fried?

Quite a few times I mistakenly connected RX pin to RX of USB-TTL cable (and TX to TX)... even when there was stuff that was supposed to be sent/received over the cable (until I figured out why it was not working!). Never had an issue.
