Hello! I need to use UART 2 for telemetry on APM 2.5 so that I can use both USB(multiplexed with UART0) and Xbee telemetry(hopefully on UART 2). I have followed the directions given on the google code page, and this is what I have done.
-Cut the two upper bridges on the AUTOMUX UART0 pads provided underneath the APM.
-Soldered the two corresponding lower bridges. Verified using short test through Multimeter.
-Downloaded the Arduplanev2.68, edited config.h to
// use this to enable telemetry on UART2. This is used
// when you have setup the solder bridge on an APM2 to enable UART2
#define TELEMETRY_UART2 ENABLED
and then successfully compiled and uploaded the firmware on the board using arduino 1.0.3 (also downloaded from APM google code page).
Now, I tried use the UART 0/2 port (default telemetry port on APM2.5) but i get no data there.
Then I tried using UART 2 provided on the side (soldered pins there) and used TX2 and RX2, all I got was heartbeat at 1 hz, and no other data.
What am I doing wrong here ?
