> Telemetry support on the OpenTracker has been merged into the
> firmware release. If you enable telemetry output, you'll get an
> telemetry report with:
> Temperature (+/- 2C, from onboard sensor)
> Supply voltage (accurate to about 0.1V)
> External analog input
> Digital counter (continuous count or reset after transmit)
> HDOP reading reported by GPS
> Jumper / digital input state
> Config profile in use
> At Bob's suggestion it now reports a proper sequence number. The
> temperature and voltage sensors can be removed if you want to use
> inputs for something else. This release also allows you to
> tracker to transmit if it loses GPS lock - it'll add a NOFIX flag in
> comment to let you know the position might not be valid. This
> particularly useful for balloon users that might lose the GPS on
> have it freeze up in flight.
