Openlog seems to be resetting after sending it commands


I am trying to configure an openlog to command mode. I am getting some strange results. When the board powers up I receive “1122<<”. If I first try to configure it into command mode then I receive something like “111111111111112222222222222<<<<<<<<<<<<<”. And never the “>” character which indicates command mode.

It would seem that the openlog is getting reset somehow but I really am not sure how. The reset pin is pulled high. The RX pin isn’t held low at start up. I am really not sure whats going on.

Anyone have a clue as to whats going on?
