    has anyone received these and verified that they will work? At these prices, I'm thinking I can add some display items to the places I wouldn't have.

    Edit: Oops, I just read some of the "Success Report" posts. So now My question is Distance.

    I believe 10ED is the newest one which would follow the release below.



    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    | Release Notes |
    | XBee 802.15.4 Modules |
    | Copyright (C) 2011, Digi International |
    +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+

    ================================================== ==============================
    Release Date: July 11, 2011
    Release Version: 1xEC

    +--------------+
    | New Features |
    +--------------+
    - Added code to support a new revision of the Freescale transceiver used
    internally in the module. This code is necessary to ensure optimum receiver
    sensitivity. Previous versions of firmware loaded on this new hardware may
    exhibit reduced sensitivity.

    +-----------+
    | Bug Fixes |
    +-----------+
    - Added the VL command, which was erroneously removed in a previous firmware release.
    - Fixed bug where the wakeup times from pin sleep were very long (~18msec in some cases). This would
    occasionally cause watchdog resets.
    - Fixed a bug in which occasional watchdog resets would occur.

    +-----------------------+
    | Known Issues / Errata |
    +-----------------------+
    - The ATGT parameter can be set smaller than a character time at certain
    baud rates. At this setting the user would be unable to enter command
    mode. A warning of this behavior is not yet documented in the user
    manual.

    ================================================== ==============================
    Release Date: June 16, 2010
    Release Version: 1xe8

    +--------------+
    | New Features |
    +--------------+

    +-----------+
    | Bug Fixes |
    +-----------+
    - Removed defaults for the DD paramter in the .mxi file (fixed in 1xe7)

    - Fixed bug which caused AIO samples to be innaccurate on PRO modules
    (fixed in 1xe7)

    - Fixed defaults in the code for the PR command on AIO and DIO Adapter
    firmware.

    - Fixed defaults in the .mxi files for the PR command on the 232 and 485
    firmware.

    - Fixed bug where the encryption key would get set to 0 if a ATKY was issued
    without a parameter.

    - Fixed bug where the MAC was resetting when the allow association bit of
    ATA2 was changed.

    - Fixed bug where the guard time before +++ was erroneously enforced on
    powerup.

    - Fixed bug where modules in SM5 mode would always stay awake for the ST time
    when ON_SLEEP was deasserted.

    - Fixed bug where the IS parameter would accept a parameter, which it didn't
    use.

    +-----------------------+
    | Known Issues / Errata |
    +-----------------------+
    - The ATGT parameter can be set smaller than a character time at certain
    baud rates. At this setting the user would be unable to enter command
    mode. A warning of this behavior is not yet documented in the user
    manual.

    ================================================== ==============================
    Firmware Version: 10e6
    Release Date: April 30, 2009

    +--------------+
    | New Features |
    +--------------+
    Created new builds for RS232, RS485, and USB Interfaces with default values
    set correctly for DD and for D7 in the case of RS485
    For a version number using format ABCD, then 'B' specifies the build type
    as follows:
    B=0 - Standard build
    B=1 - RS232 Adaptor
    B=2 - One-wire sensor
    B=3 - RS485 adapter
    B=4 - USB adapter
    B=6 - Analog I/O adapter
    B=7 - Digital I/O adapter

    +---------------+
    | Upgrade Notes |
    +---------------+
    Effective with this release, the guard time before and after the '+++' sequence
    is always enforced before entering AT command mode. Previous releases had one
    exception to this rule: That exception was that the guard time before the first
    '+++' sequence after reset was not required. In other words, it was assumed that
    this guard time was satisfied before entering command mode. Now, with Release
    0x10e6, the guard time must also be satisfied immediatedly after reset before
    command mode can be entered.

    +-----------+
    | Bug Fixes |
    +-----------+
    Fixed problem with SM5 mode not sending poll requests to the coordinator when
    enabled to do so. The fix looks at SO, bit 0 to know whether or not to send
    a poll request if the radio has a cyclic sleep wake up. If the radio has a
    pin wakeup, A1, bit 3 determines whether or not to send a poll request to
    get data from the coordinator.
    Fixed program loads to work like DigiMesh 2.4 so that a CTU load can work with
    an RS485 adapter.

    ================================================== ==============================
    Firmware Version: 10e5
    Release Date: March 5, 2009

    +--------------+
    | New Features |
    +--------------+

    +---------------+
    | Upgrade Notes |
    +---------------+

    +-----------+
    | Bug Fixes |
    +-----------+
    Fixed problem with duplicate packets being displayed on UART when the sender is expecting
    an ACK. The reduced packet tracker timeout on release 10e2 made it possible to track
    more packets, but it introduced this bug. Fixed the problem by increasing the packet
    tracker timeout on received frames that request an ACK.
    Fixed a problem with not sending an ACK on a duplicate packet. If the sender missed the
    ACK the first time the packet was received, then it needs an ACK on subsequent retries,
    even though the destination node discards the packet because it was prevously output
    to the UART.

    [QUOTE=kychristmas;200299]has anyone received these and verified that they will work? At these prices, I'm thinking I can add some display items to the places I wouldn't have.QUOTE]

    I got 4 for $9.50 from a 8.00 offer, delivered yesterday and all are working.
    These were a little more stubborn to flash than the pros I have done in the past.
    As recieved they had ver 106 ?? and would not take a straight 10ED flash.
    I first upgraded them to ver 1081 @9600 8-N-1, then 57600 8-M-2 ver 10ED in 2 different steps.
    All worked pretty well on a 24SS snap in.

    Care Instructions: Never leave light set unattended while plugged in

    I had to to the same thing, but they work very well now. They have a surprisingly good indoor range. I got the signal to travel through several walls.
    Haven't tested it outdoors yet though.

    2011- 6 leaping arches and 1 15ft spiral mega tree down by the highway.

    Here's a weird one for you.

    I sent the guy a message asking for a price on the whole lot.
    I was hoping for a great price that I could then run a group buy.

    He still has over 250 units !

    If I buy them all, he wants $9 each plus shipping !

    Good Grief, that's more then me and others are getting on ones and twos with ebay 'offers'.

    I guess he's in no hurry to move them.

    Oh well.... I tried !

    That sounds like the deal I tried to make with Mouser for XBPro radios! On a quantity 288 the price dropped only $3!!! SHEESH!!!

    The DIGWDF Store is the place to go for wireless stuff for Renard... controllers, adapters... or other junk that
    nobody else would probably ever make. It's all in stock right now at http://diychristmas.org/store

    Anyone still trying to buy, and would be willing to proxy for me? I'd like to get a few more XBees.

    I PMed, but Uke could serve you better...

    UKE,.. Start your bid at $7.50 and then counter offer by $0.50 three times and you will get to $8.90 each or less.
