Peter, when I test for connection using the tunerpro suite it runs a quick check, initializes communication, recognizes the connection but when I try to open the actual serial monitor to see the data displayed the LEDs attached to the mini turn off. If i retry the comm test it returns to normal state with LEDs on. At this point I'm sure its an issue with the tunerpro suite and not the board or my sketch as it will print data to the ide
serial mo it or all day long.
Tunerpro is a program designed to "tune" automotive ecu's by altering the values of a .bin file. It includes a serial data monitor for viewing and logging data from the ecu. I'm building a transmission controller using the pro mini. My desire is to be able to view the data coming from the mini for "tuning" purposes. Like i mentioned above, I will have to figure out the required parameters the tunerpro needs in order to view the data stream as I believe that is my hurdle right now.
I appreciate everyone's help in this matter and when I get it figured out I'll post my solution.
