My USB connection broke off the APM board, is there any way around using the usb port? Is it possibly to use the telemetry pins to connect to it? I also have the the ground link of the 3dr telemetry can i connect that physically to the telemetry port?
Bootloader still runs at 115200..
setting COM6 to 115200 baud in Mission Planner won't let me connect to the APM anymore.
Does UART0 support 115200? Can I change the baud rate for the bootloader?
I never changed any baudrates on the APM. Where and how can I change these?
For MAVLink, use 57600.
For firmware upgrades, select 115200 and do not connect. You will have to push the reset button about the same time as you start upload.
For Mission Planner 1.2.38 you should use the following timing when uploading new firmware to APM 2.5
Thanks to all who supported me!
Can I ask what version of APM do you have and how did you broke it ? I'm using USB port very often and I would be very disappointed if it's happen to mine... : / Is there any way to prevent this ?
You can reduce the wear on the USB port by connecting a short micro USB cable, and then connecting a USB extension cable.
I had an APM clone which didn't work right in the first place.
I'm on my third 3DR APM and haven't had any issues with the USB connection (APM2 x 2, APM2.5+)

Shoot me a PM Colin... glad to help you with it. Which one was it?
Can you shoot us a photo of where it ripped off the board? You may trip simply resoldering a new one on.
