My recent acquisition of a new LVB Tracker came with serial only, not
the USB option.  At first I thought this might be an issue but quickly
found that you can buy a nice FTDI USB to serial cable for around $15
online.  It is a very clean solution.  I was told that the USB option
had given some LVB Tracker users issues hence why serial was supplied.

I have heard that the unit using the USB that comes with it gives problems. has this been fixed in the new batches or should I buy one with the RS232 and buy a usb to serial converter?.  (I'm using a laptop no serial ports) Any help appreciated. 73 de Scott VE6ITV
