I can not connect Mini-RX beacon to the dashboard

Post by kangye1234 »

Dear:

I bought 4 Mini-RX, one HWv4.9 and one modem.

I can connect HWv4.9 and modem to the dashboard.
But all the 4 Mini-RX can not be connected to the dashboard.

I think I charge it, switch position is right. USB cable works well.

By the way, sometimes, just for one or two seconds, the dashboard display one fail, probably because of the Mini-RX?

What is the problem? What can I do?
If it can not be found by the dashboard. I can not upload the firmware, and do anything.

I wonder, if there is anything wrong with the Mini-RX.

Can you help me. Any suggestions could be help

Really appreciate it.

Best Regards

Kang

Hello Kang,

Thanks for your comment :)

Beacon may be over discharged. Read Troubleshooting chapter of the Operating manual. We described that issue before :)

I still have two problems

Firstly, i try as you said. I think it is not overcharge
Is there a possibility that there is something wrong with the Mini-RX beacon

Secondly, HW4.9 can be connected to dashboard.
But it can only be found on the map when hedgehog is enabled.
When I change it into disabled, the beacon can not be found on the map anymore.
What should I do?

Looking forward to your reply

Hello,

Yes, it seems mini-Rx doesn't recognized by Dashboard in Linux when connected via USB.
We will fix this issue in next software update

Hi, I am having an issue with a modem connecting to the dashboard on ubuntu 18.04.

The lsusb shows it is detected:
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0483:5740 STMicroelectronics STM32F407

the /dev/serial/by-id/usb-Marvelmind_Robotics_Marvelmind_Robotics_Dashboard_device_00000000050C-if00

exists and /dev/tty/ACM01 is assigned to the modem

All the hardware managed to connect on Windows and I uploaded the latest .hex in, but in linux (same machine) they do not seem to want to connect. Is there any way to verify from a command line if a connection is possible?
