    Bought it a year ago and use it on my ebike. Manual is lacking info on using /settings many of the features ie smart beaconing and Bluetooth. Thought after a year someone would expand the manual; surprised that has not happen as yet. It is only 1 watt but found it adequate when using a better antenna.

    I am trying to change broadcast frequency on aprs from 144.000 to 144.390. However the x1c5 pro does not seem to record the change in software. All other settings change properly. How do you change to 144.390?

    What is the purpose of the TTL Ext? Is it 5 V or 3.3 V TTL? Can it do KISS through this port instead of using Bluetooth?

    • ba4tbqth

      It is 3.3V,just like BT output.you may setup the Bluetooth output1 as UI.

    I recently had the chance to get the X1C5 Plus newer version with USB-C Port. The firmware is recognized at boot screen / programming software as X1C5_D4_220310 .
    Looking for firmware downloads I could only find an older version from 2021.
    The latest setup program I could find seems also to be outdated from 20211123. Documentation is years after product release uncomplete (what is affected by the Q parameter when using smart beaconing), setup program and firmware are quite buggy (the tracker send frames much too often) …
    Because the hardware is really nice and using a better RF module like many ESP tracker projects, I’d like to see both, firmware and setup program as open source on GitHub please!

    Hi! Do this device transmit on an other UHF frecuencies other than HAM Radio band (430-450)? Can be customized? Thanks

      Our UHF version covers 400 – 470 Mhz.
