Before Posting an Issue

Hi All,

Before posting an issue or a problem in the ArduRover Discussion Forum, please check the wiki table of contents, review the firmware release notes in the subforum, and search that subforum for existing answers to your question. Help avoid duplicate threads by finding other members with the same issue and their solution.

When formulating your post, use a descriptive title such as "rover will not navigate to waypoints in the Auto mode" (not "HELP!" or "Problem").

Please include the following information to help diagnose your query:

  • Describe the problem you are having. What is the expected verses the observed behavior?
  • Provide hardware information such as the brand and version of your autopilot, GPS, radio, and compass, as well as any other pertinent details about your rover setup.
  • What version of the APM: ArdurRover2 firmware version are you running?
  • For navigation issues, provide your tlog and/or dataflash log. Click here for instructions on retrieving a dataflash log.

I was wondering why compassmot hasn't been integrated into the rover code.  I read the comment that says it's not needed but I've been testing a rover with some BIG motors drawing lots of amps and I…Continue

The blank screen you see is because your current params are the same as the ones you are loading. I think. It's a compare params screen.
Try changing something, say WP_Radius, write to APM/Pix, then try loading from the dropdown again. The WP_Radius change should be there, showing the change you made as current, and the loaded params WP_RADIUS as the change.

I too have run across this issue. What forum/group is the best place to ask questions and submit suggestions for the mission planners(s)?

Comment by Thomas J Coyle III on April 8, 2014 at 12:58pm


I have always used the full parameter list, however I was on the ground floor with the ArduRover2 development and know my way around. I would look at the ArduRover Wiki and Wiki parameter list to see what is germane to what you want to have control over or leave at the default value.

Thank you Thomas.  Yes I have advanced view checked but still get same results.

Here is a screen shot:

My assumption, which is probably wrong, is that by selecting the rover.params I would get only those params that apply to a rover.  

What is the best way to modify parms?  Work from beginner to Advanced or work through the full param list?

Have you checked the Advanced View box at the bottom of the Planner window in the Config/Tuning Tab?

Perhaps wen u choose that certain option with loading parameters there are none to load ? What about saving some paras first then load ? Just sm ideas.
Comment by ben on April 8, 2014 at 8:40am
Hi emile, maybe update not at home so cant u go online first ? Or r u disconnected ?
Comment by emile 'butch' alline on April 8, 2014 at 8:32am

I have put this on the APM forum, but got no replies, so here goes...

In MP 1.2.99 > config > full param list and using the drop down list on the right hand side of the screen:
Selecting 3DR_rover, beginner, intermediate, or advanced and then clicking the load params button, I get nothing but a blank screen. Other selections do show some params.
I uninstalled and re-installed MP and got same results.

Any help would be appreciated.

Please don't worry. I know someone will get around to it. I just enjoy fiddling with parameters.
