I followed Ardupilots guide on setting this up, serial 3 instead of serial 4 of course. I can see that the laser inside is working, but I am not getting any indication that the lidar is working in Mission Planner. I have my rx and tx wires setup on a servo cable to switch back and forth and I dont get any sonarrange or rangefinder1 information under the ‘Status’ tab.
Ok, no I didn’t know that. I am looking at a pinout diagram but I didn’t know uart6 is serial 3. Ok, so I’m going to run just the tx cable from the tfmini to the rx pad for the GPS and configure serial 3 to be lidar…?
Ok I have the green wire from the tfmini (tx wire) to Rx6 on the omnibus nano. I have serial 3 set to 9 and set the connection speed. I also rngfind1_type set to 20. When I plug into MP, I get no sonar data.
