I now have two prototypes of the 4G modem using SIM7600G R2 chip for OVMS v3.

One is for my own work, but willing to send the other free to a volunteer developer willing to spend time working with me to develop and test this new option. Obviously looking for someone who has spent some time on the OVMS code base, with a good history of contributions to the project and a willingness to work on improving the cellular modem driver.

Any volunteers? Please eMail me directly (mark at openvehicles.com <mailto:mark at openvehicles.com>).

Regards, Mark.
