A project log for SubPos Positioning System

A "dataless" Wi-Fi positioning system that can be used anywhere GPS can't.

I am hammering away at the development of the firmware for the micro on the SubPos Node. I currently have it talking to the ESP module via UART2 and have a user interface with UART1. Implemented as well is a setup wizard and EEPROM storage.

First boot (notice the CRC error at the start; data is stored with a CRC):

SubPos Node - http://www.subpos.org
fw ver 0.9.5 2015-06-27

error: eeprom data crc check failed, data not loaded.

error: settings data crc check failed, settings not loaded.
