Thanks. Looks good. 4 cars updated to v1.3.1 overnight and all seem to be reporting in ok.

I should have the production V2 modules in my hands today or tomorrow, and will send pictures of them with the pickit plugged in. I only have a pickit3, but it looks similar enough.

To avoid confusion between V1 and V2, probably best to just include a picture of the two modules. They look so completely different, that should avoid any mistakes. We really don't want people to be flashing the wrong firmware to the wrong modules. In particular, for V2 devices, they will accept V1 firmware but a few things won't work properly (like the GSM/GPRS switch). I've been trying to work out how to pickup the processor ID so I can check at startup and refuse to run if the wrong firmware is flashed, but still not solved.

Regards, Mark
