    Glad you got your latest issue sorted out.;)
    But I want to share a little trick with you I forgot about. When I wrote smc3-sps I anticapated some people may have issues running Simtools at 500000 with the arduino. Therefore I included a jumper setting that allows for it to be changed between 500000 and 115200 without altering the sketch at all. Putting a jumper from gnd to pin 8 will switch the arduino from 500000 to 115200 and removing it will switch it back (requires an arduino reset or power cycle each time switched). If you want to get really fancy you can put a switch on the jumper so you can switch it without pulling the jumper wire.

    I will have to remember that one, but I'm an expert now at changing the baud by the Arduino and if it get it sorted properly I should not have to play with SMC very often, I hope. :thumbs
