Topic: How to setup an SparkFun Openlog with an Arudino Uno? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

Hi Everyone! I'm pretty new to Arduino in general (The only thing I've done is messing with LEDs, that's the extent of my knowledge), and I'm trying to setup an SparkFun Openlog on my Arduino Uno. I would follow the guide that comes with the OpenLog, however it appears to be for a different Arduino. Would that guide work for the Arduino Uno? Is there another guide specifically for the Arduino Uno? Maybe a video tutorial perhaps?



Thanks!

There is a set of example sketches. They contain descriptions in the comments near the top how to wire the openlog to an Arduino; most of them seem to make use of SoftwareSerial so the wiring can basically be used on any Arduino.
If you understand an example, use it.
If you don't understand an example, don't use it.

The Sparkfun Hookup Guide pretty much covers most things.
OP indicated that he used the guide; not sure if it was the hookup guide ;)

I did not find it straight forward to 'translate' that guide to an Uno; needed to have a look at the schematic first.

And I did not expect to find the Arduino examples in the hardware folder on github; had to google them to figure that one out.

Anyway, I can imagine that OP battled with this.
If you understand an example, use it.
If you don't understand an example, don't use it.
