Wantng to purchase a gruvin board.. questions.

Gruvin 9x development has now been stopped - with the development team joining up with the open9x team to produce one firmware.

Wantng to purchase a gruvin board.. questions.

Post by cre8tiveleo » Wed Apr 04, 2012 1:09 pm

I'm looking at getting a gruvin board to write up an extensive comparison between all the options available to 9x and other similar tx's.

So my question is, what doi I need to purchase to make it useful?

The Gruvin board, that's a given, to programme it? The extra gruvin programming board? then the extra sd card interface if I want sd card capabilities?

Just askin, need to order what I need the first go around since it's coming from across the pond.

Thanks.

I think they are all sold ... You have to backorder one on the next batch? The best will be to ask Bryan from gruvin9x on the gruvin9x mailing list.

Only thing I have seen that is lacking is a built in programmer. Apart from that it is a drop in upgrade.

So if I want to programme it, I have to buy the programmer.(otehr wise how are you to upgrade it?) And for sd support the sd add on. That's all I wanted to know. (it doesn't matter if it's back ordered or not, this wasn't my question)

Thanks all.

Just looking at my board... looks like you will need something to sort the sd card out as it only has an io connector for this.

I will be installing mine into a tx soon - and will let you know outcome!

Thanks Rob. let me know about the programming board too... at the moment it doesn't seem like I'll be picking it up too soon. A bit out of reach for this hobby enthusiast. (140+40+50=230! whut!)

Check the online store out here http://gruvin9x.com/shop/
The SDcard board is separate plugin, as is the programmer board.
