I'm sorry. $519 for an unproven radio? Dude current top of the line 3 channel radios are $350-$400 MAX
I'll pass and wait for all the bugs to be worked out before I spend 1/2 a grand on a radio.

I think he knows how much the top crop costs..he said he had a 3PK. And its not untested, Ive been on the testing team for months. Congrats on your purchase. I also found the spring tension alittle stiff at first but Ive grown accustomed to it. Asfar as support is concerned Id try emailing them..and or the RCCA thread..or the Nomadio thread on RCUniverse. Roy has been fielding questions on both forums.

With the 3PK and spektrum module, if you power the RX on first, the radio goes straight to fail safe... servos move to their assigned positions..

Then when you turn the TX on the radio connects up and you have control...

A side effect of this is with momentary power loss... it causes the RX to go to fail safe until it reaquires the new signal...

To anyone with the Nomadio system:

When you have a chance can you take a couple pics of the radio powered up and the RX installed in a car? Thanks.

I assume you are talking about the voltage sensor?
I believe both outsitde ones are negative, and the positive in the center. In the manual they may warn about plugging it in backwards, but it is impossible using the included connector

VERY interesting! Checked the Sensor, and the failsafe was on "SET". Moved it to "HOLD" and same thing occured. Reviewed the manual, and I don't see any way to turn "Failsafe" off. In a sense, placing it in "hold" position is the same as turning it off.
It apparently is responding to an absense of transmitter signal. I didn't find any indication of a low voltage trigger, but this would be redundant with the voice/vibrator wasrning system.

Jack,
We are setting up a support message board at www.nomadio.net. Should be ready by end of next week. That will be our focus point for customer support and downloads.

To answer your questions:
The 4 conductor mystery connector is used to update the software in the Transciever should that need to happen in the future. The connector mates with a programming connector on the reciever.

There are blocking diodes on the battery connector- if you put it in wrong, nothing bad happens, but it won't power up. The manual is being updated to reflect this. We view the manual for this product as a living document and will be updating it regularly.

We're working on the install routine - the USB driver generates a warning in some XP and W2K systems but it is really not a meaningful warning. It has to do with the fact that the USB driver wasn't run through Microsoft's $$$ testing lab. It's the only general purpose USB driver we could find.

I hear Nomadio is going to have a program that lets the Sensor talk to spektrum receivers

LOW / SLOW mode LOW as in they have to go to low power by a FACTOR OF 6, slow because we have to go from 100Hz to 50Hz

DAMN!!!

nomadio will be putting out new update. these guy's are thinking sensor thoughts from all of youu and this and more is what they love to do is customize all for the driver. if you are thinking and not sure call them and tell them that. they will take your info and send you a sensor so you can trial it and if your not send it back in for no cost to you. now who else is willing to do this? have fun, drive fast!

There is no reason for you to post the same content on 3 different threads.
