Hello friends, how very, very nice it is to see this announcement.

Sports Carazing request one car for now. Deposit has been payed. If we could have ID 9 or 7, that'd be lovely. Aspiring detectives may attempt to identify the car based on this request ;)

All the best, see you all soon :thumbsup:

Hello guys

Personally I think the decision not to offer firmware is a bad one. If anything I’d expect more help than “normal” seeing as we’ve all been away from it for so long, so this is a bit disappointing to read.

Not everyone has dongles and Slotit software at home to do it themselves. Also consider that if a chip blows and you replace it with one out of the packet it’ll ideally need to be updated. Using Siemens nRF toolbox can also be tricky unless you have an ARC power base, negating the use for magnets, but I’m guessing the club won’t be supplying that either for whatever reason.

I will bring laptop, dongle and ARC power base for easier Bluetooth flashing. Anyone needs firmware, just ask.
