Not sure what happend, I pluged in the radio with all my other boards in place. All boards were sending data for a couple of minutes, then I noticed the GPS had no data on my remote recieving end, I went into my shop room to see what the problem was, no blinking green light. I brought the board out and hooked it up to another Propeller, and still nothing. Could the power of the XBee being in such close proximity to the GPS (esentually back to back) burn out something in the GPS reciever? Everthing else is still working fine, I spen a lot of time including this unit in my design, I thought it was bulletproof, and gave more info than most other modules. Plus the battery back-up aspect too. I really like the unit, and hate to have to go to somethin else. inspected it closely, no signs of overheating, bad solder conections, all componants look normal.
My next step may be powering through USB, since I pulled the connector off, I'll have to solder some wires to it. The documentation says it has soft power on/off, never fiddled with it, could that of set itself off?
Upon power up the red and blue LEDs blink once momentarally, and the green LED lights when I touch the componants near it. The question is could I have burnt something out by my high power XBee?
