    I'm testing within Samsung S3 tethered to T-Mobile running 4.1.1  with Xbee Pro 900 for TM, works well. Except...

    Until today's update I was having problems displaying Parameters list, now only a few messages are missing FLT MODE 3 and FailSafe Short, both show (?)  no data.

    I am connecting to an APM 1 (2650) running Ardupilot 2.65 with some changes to mavlink to allow NAV–DOP messages from Ublox for true DGPS fix status and accurate HDOP values. By design/default Ublox libarary only sends PDOP values that we use as HDOP. I also sends text messages to Remzibi OSD or MiniOSD.on port 3  with Telemetry out on Port 1 both at 57600.

    Hi Kevin, Amazing project. Now I'm testing it and I've found some issues. First, the hardware used: APM1 with firmware V2.68 (ARDUPLANE) Mode…

    Kevin, tested same cable/modem on both devices SG-NoteII and my new Oker TP-703 tablet. NoteII is just fine now with new cable but tablet won't connect now. 

    What is best ways to debug if there is something wrong on drivers/hardware etc?

    I really wonder why my earlier cable did not work. As it did work with mouse/keyboard just fine.
