  1. I've reposted the question with more detail in a new post: http://forum.43oh.com/topic/10077-energia-compilation-error/ I hope someone can help me there instead
  2. Hey everyone, I'm trying to interface an MSP-EXP430FR5969 with a GPS+GSM module (https://tronixlabs.com.au/arduino/shields/3g-shield/adafruit-fona-3g-cellular-breakout-900-and-2100-mhz-for-optus-vodafone-australia/) I've been able to send a text message to my mobile using the Arduino, but when I try on Energia 1.6 with the module now plugged into the MSP430 I get compilation errors (mainly due to atof not being declared). Here's the code I am using: #include <stdlib.h> #include <stdio.h> #include "Adafruit_FONA.h" #define FONA_RX 4 #define FONA_TX 3 #define FONA_RST
  3. Hi again all! I currently have the FONA 3g GPS + GSM module (linked in first first post) so that I can use both over the one UART connection. However, I can't get it to work My current connection is FONA Tx -> MSP Rx (P2.6) FONA Rx -> MSP Tx (P2.5) FONA Gnd -> MSP GNS (P20) FONA Vio -> MSP 5V Vcc (P1) I can upload the empty Fil
  4. Thank you, that was helpful! I'm still unsure how I should connect a UART module to the backchannel UART (pins 2.1 and 2.0) . Here's what the board currently looks like: https://postimg.org/image/6wcwjbho3/ I am using a micro-USB to computer so the Ez-FET jumpers are all disconnected (although I do have a JTAG debugger if it is necessary to use). Do I remove the RXD and TXD jumpers entirely (or flip them horizontally)? If so, then which pin do I use, the top or the bottom of each RXD/TXD? I have also read that the board uses UART to communicate with the computer. How is it poss
  5. Thanks for the response Fmilburn. With the MSP-EXP430FR5969, is it possible to connect a separate GPS and GSM module via UART to both Rx/Tx on board (layout shown here: http://energia.nu/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/MSP430FR5969.jpeg I've looked at the User's guide and although the board has 2 UART interfaces, one of them is called 'Application (or "Backchannel") UART'. If I am unable to use both UARTs on board to communicate, how is it that the combined GPS + GSM module can interface with the micro-controller using just the 1 interface? Thanks!
  6. Hi! I would like to interface a combined GPS + GSM module to an MSP-EXP430FR5969 using Energia. The aim is at the press of a button/signal, an SMS is sent with the GPS lat/long coordinates at the time of the press. I am planning to use this module (https://tronixlabs.com.au/arduino/shields/3g-shield/adafruit-fona-3g-cellular-breakout-900-and-2100-mhz-for-optus-vodafone-australia/) to connect it all up. I've seen a lot of Arduino examples on this (e.g. using tinyGPS and softwareSerial) but I'm not sure if this same code will work on the MSP430. Will it? How can I go about chang
