"Ok thanks very much!! I will try it. Do you think the waypoint timeout issue is due to the board not receiving enough power?"

I added the issue to the Google Code site. I remember I told you about this issue a while ago, I thought it was fixed. Is it possible to provide me with a version of the ardurover code in which you can confirm waypoint sending works? I wou…"

"Hi James,
 
I was testing your latest Ardurover code, however I get operation timed out when trying to write waypoints. I am connecting via FTDI to the telemport. Have you ever tried sending waypoints via FTDI?
 
Thanks,
Junior.

Junior Sammy commented on James Goppert's blog post What is ArduPilotOne?
"It would be nice to have an ArduPilotOne category in the forums. I had so many questions about APO but no one knew what it was at the time :S so I had to figure it out on my own :)"

"Hi James,
 
I saw on the Roadmap for APO one of the goals was to "Test rover obstacle avoidance."
Does Ardurover have obstacle avoidance? If so, how does it work and what hardware deos it use for detecting obstacles?
 
Thanks,
Junior."
