Let me just start with, I have evidence to back this theory up
So yesterday I had to drive 500km away (approx 7hrs). I decided to take one of my Boron’s with me and left one at home.
Home Boron running 1.3.0 powered by 12v.
Vehicle Boron running 1.1.1 powered by about 7v on battery.
Both are running a very similar version of code except for a few minor changes (only about what they post and when). Both are running updated Ublox firmware.
I left home about 12:30pm yesterday. (lunch time)
The Home Boron was junk - dropping its connection randomly however there were period for hours where it wouldn’t drop. A total of 57 dropouts from when I left to when I got home.
Vehicle Boron had a dropout or two before I left. On the 7hr drive it dropped out a few times, I think about 12 or so times. There was not always reception and I was travelling 100kph and it was in the boot, so I’m not too worried about that. I got into town about 7:30pm and arrived at the motel about 9pm. The Boron did not drop out once from 7:30pm to 10:30am (15 hrs) which for me is unheard of. At 10:30am I was on the road and dropping in and out of reception. On the 7 hour drive the vehicle boron dropped out about 11 times. Pretty consistent with the trip up.
Here is the weird part. I arrived home at 4:30pm to where both Boron’s are within range of each other.
The vehicle Boron is now dropping out randomly up to 35 dropouts, whilst the home Boron has been solid for the last 5.5hours still at 57 dropouts.
So… is there a possibility that the mesh is causing issues with the Boron’s? I generally have 2 Boron’s testing at most times… In my code I have called Mesh.off(); in the setup.
Sorry its long winded. I’m going to post this now and turn off the home Boron as my Final test and will update the results in the morning. In theory the vehicle Boron which is outside (but still in mesh range) should become good again… :-/
UPDATE I guess my theory is a bust. It dropped 7 times over night.
I will try and take it to another location today and leave it there. I am now starting to wonder if it is tower related.?
