Hello, I am trying to use an Ulrasonic range finder, SRF01, with SoftwareSerial, but I cannot seem to get it to work. Here is the product, http://www.robot-electronics.co.uk/htm/srf01tech.htm
I get this error when I try to upload this code to my Arduino 2560.

Code:
c:/users/MYNAME/desktop/stuff/arduino-1.0.1/hardware/tools/avr/bin/../lib/gcc/avr/4.3.2/../../../../avr/lib/avr6/crtm2560.o: In function `__vector_default':
(.vectors+0xcc): relocation truncated to fit: R_AVR_13_PCREL against symbol `__vector_51' defined in .text.__vector_51 section in core.a(HardwareSerial.cpp.o)
I am running Windows 7 (64 bit) and here is my code. From this page http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php?topic=131592.0
Code:
// Code modified and developed by Will Myers and Justin Miller

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

#define txrxPin 10                                           // Defines Pin 10 to be used as both rx and tx for the SRF01

  int dist = ((highByte<<8)+lowByte);                        // Put them together
  return dist;
}

All it says is error compiling, I have checked for syntax, or undefined variables, and I have all the required code. All my other sketches upload fine.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated! Thanks

What version of the IDE do you have? That compiled without errors for me using 1.0.4.

What does this bogus statement mean ?

How do you expect us to give you good advice,  if you don't disclose what the compilation error message is ?

Sorry, I was referring to the main heading, I attached the full error text in my original post.

OK,  I did not notice that error message there before.

Well that error does not appear to relate to anything which is in your actual sketch.

If I had this problem,  I'd try the following.

(1)  I'd try putting #include <Arduino.h>    at the top,  just in case there is some illogical condition with the dependency of some
#define'd constant somewhere.

(2)  I'd locate and check the file  Hardwareserial.h,   and check it isn't missing or corrupted.

(3)  I'd reinstall the Arduino IDE.


When I first started using Arduino,  I did have some problems related to having multiple java installations on my computer.  I don't know
if this problem could be similar, or not.  I don't have those issues any more.

Thank you Nick, I updated, and it compiles, but all the serial communication returns is "ÓwÌ"

Any ideas?

Thanks michinyon, I did all three, and now it compiles and uploads, but the serial monitor just returns bogus characters...

This is getting odd,

Thanks everyone for being so helpful!

Bogus characters is nearly always serial speed mismatch.

Check the speed of the serial and the speed setting of the serial monitor.

I also don't understand how you started your ultrasonic bus with only one pin.

Okay, so now with the serial monitor set to 19200 baud, serial prints in "SRF01 Test" and then does nothing. According to the manufacturer, rx and tx are using the same software serial pin. Obviously not at the same time.

I can't think how sending and receiving on the same pin would work.

AMPS-N,

Here is a quote from the manufacturer,

Quote
Single Pin Serial Communication
Serial data is 1 start, 1 stop and no parity bits. Serial data is a TTL level signal - It is NOT RS232. Do not connect the SRF01 to an RS232 port - you will destroy the module! Communication with the SRF01 is with both serial input and serial output on a single pin. The SRF01 will be listening at all times except when it is actually sending data, and will go back to listening as soon as its finished. To communicate with the SRF01, you simply need to send a "break", followed by two bytes, the address of the SRF01 (factory default is 1) and the command. A "break" is just a low level for 12 bit times or longer. 1.5mS or more will be fine. It is used to synchronize transfers on the 1-wire serial bus.


If anyone can help me get this running, I would be immensely appreciative

Okay, so now the problem is that the SRF01 does not return any range data to the serial monitor. Here is the code I am using.

Code:
// Code modified and developed by Will Myers and Justin Miller
