TinyDuino / Re: TINYDUINO GPS TRACKER + DATA LOGGER TUTORIAL Problem
« Last post by PSch on May 10, 2019, 10:51:42 AM »
Hi,
This sounds like a battery problem!
It reminds me of a similar problem I had when using a Lipoly battery sourced via amazon and not from Tinycircuits. The battery initially looked exactly the same and the plug fitted as well, but the polarity of the wires going into the plug was swapped around (took me about a week of on and off trial and error, charging with different chargers etc. to figure this out :-( ....!)
The proper orientation for the Tinyduino when the pug is pointing away from you (cable towards you) and the metal contacts are visible, is  red(plus) left and black (minus) right (as seem on the images of the batteries in the shop section of this page!)

Hope this helps!

For those who played the game. Anyone beat the game and got a ranking? What ranking did you get?

We are currently working on the 1.1 update with a new unlockable mode.

TinyDuino / TinyZero with LED
« Last post by GrandPoohbah on April 23, 2019, 12:11:06 PM »
When I connect an LED to an Arduino digital pin, I usually put a 220-ohm resistor in series. However, since the TinyZero is 3.3v instead of 5v, is that still necessary?

TinyDuino / TINYDUINO GPS TRACKER + DATA LOGGER TUTORIAL Problem
« Last post by shwndfrnkln on April 19, 2019, 11:22:50 AM »
Hi All,
This is my first Tiny project.  I cannot seem to get past the following point.  I have built the boards and uploaded the sketch properly.  Here is what I see in the serial monitor....

Initializing Flash Memory...

Determining write/read start point...
Done.

Send 'y' to start read mode. Write mode will begin in 10 seconds...

Now initiating write mode.

Attempting to wake GPS module.. done.

So now what is the process for unplugging this device and going remote with it? 

I have a 500mAh battery plugged in. 
I turn the power switch off.
I unplug the USB cable. 
Then I switch the power switch back on. (P13 blinks once)
Now I wait for the P13 light to give me some indication of life.  Nothing happens.

What am I doing wrong?

I have a Tinyscreen+ also.  I have tried to complete the BATTERY VOLTAGE READING USING THE TINYSCREEN+ tutorial. I can upload the TinyScreenBasicExample and it works great.  When I upload the battery sketch then unplug the USB and switch the device on, nothing comes on the screen. 

What am I doing wrong?

All sketches are downloaded from the Tiny Circuits website tutorials. 

Seems I am missing something here....

TinyDuino / Taking and saving video to SDCard
« Last post by Nefariis on April 17, 2019, 08:33:37 PM »
Are there any cameras that are capable of taking video that would work the the TinyDuino?

I would like to take a few minutes of video, saving the file to the SD Card.

So would something like VC0706, VC7670, or cc1563 work?

Thank you

After barely escaping the dragon’s lairs Rayne traveled the world in search for the next big adventure. Rayne came across a rumor of a magic lamp hidden within a castle. The lamp is guarded by vicious creatures hunting down any interlopers. Help Rayne navigate the castle and avoid the beasts to get the lamp.

TinyDuino / Re: Send GPS data over BLE nordic NRF8001
« Last post by jpinzon on April 14, 2019, 02:32:36 PM »
I am trying this too with no luck. I used your code to check mine and with yours I was able to get the coordinates (GPS) on the serial printer in the MAC where the Tinyduino is connected. Via blue tooth I can connect to a Chromebook and I am able to send from the chromebook a message but it seems it does not work the other way. Any ideas?

TinyDuino / Re: TinyZero and MicroSD Shield
« Last post by Ben Rose on April 11, 2019, 02:53:23 PM »
Hi, realized this did not get a response- yes they do work together, and you're right that it's a regulated 3.3V into another 3.3V regulator. The regulators that we use are all LDO type and the voltage drop is very small(spec: 50mv @ 100mA).

Thanks,
Ben

TinyDuino / Re: USB TinyShield and Bluetooth
« Last post by Ben Rose on April 11, 2019, 02:42:50 PM »
I gave this a try on my computer and it seems to be working- if you're using TinyDuino, do you have the ATmega328p 8MHz processor selection picked? The tutorial seems to skip over board selection, I'll make a note of that. We're in the process of reworking our tutorial section.

If you did have the right processor selection, let me know what IDE version and operating system you're on so I can try to duplicate the issue.

Thanks,
Ben
