I am new to the forum and pretty green when it comes to programming stuff. So please excuse my ignorance.
I got a logomatic v2(fat32 version) logger and i got happy data logging over uart0. I really dig its small size and SD card integration and the fact that it works right out of the box without any need to program anything. BUT. I would like to simultaneously log data from the second uart1 on the board. The hardware clearly allows it, but after looking through the firmware code and searching on the internet, it is absolutely clear that the stock firmware has no capability to use that uart1.
I've looked through everything available on GitHub for Logomatic and i can't find any custom firmware that would utilize that second uart. Years ago, there was a custom firmware released by user named Kwan that does that and a million other things... but it was released for a previous, fat16 version of the board. I've tried flashing it on the logomatic that i have (using fat16 formatted card) but it doesn't seem to work.
While i have some very basic programming knowledge, i do not think that modifying the firmware myself would be feasible in the time i have. Unless someone can tell me that its easier than it looks? I looked through both, Kwan's code and original firmware and i so far only get like 10% of it.
So can someone help me with the following:
1) Is it possible to install the old kwan firmware on this newer WIG-12772 board? Perhaps i am not doing it right?
2) Is there publicly available firmware that adds that second uart functionality?
3) Should i attempt to modify the firmware myself and would you be so incredibly kind as to point me in the right direction on where to start?
It is somewhat strange to me that when the board came out and for a few years after there have been lots of updates and many users asking questions and generally the board has been getting traction. But in the last few years there are almost zero posts on this board. Did people move on to something else? Are there better compact logger alternatives that will do simultaneous serial logging with SD integration and minimum programming needed? Its also strange that the stock firmware doesn't support that second uart and that support has never been added in all the years that the board has been available.
Thank you for reading and i really appreciate any help.
