November beta releases

Don’t miss out: last month we’ve released beta software for both of our products – Navio2 and Reach.

Navio2 Beta image v2

We’re happy to announce a new beta for Navio boards which has a number of new exciting features such as preinstalled Ardupilot 3.4.3-rc1 and ROS with mavros working out of the box.

New beta also includes:

  • Versioning in /etc/rpi-issue
  • Changed default magnetometer to LSM9DS1
  • Added default power module definitions
  • A lot of minor bugfixes and improvements that you can read up on in our changelogs.

We’re waiting for your feedback on this beta as it slightly changes the way you interact with Navio. Hopefully, making it easier. By the way, check out community project made with Navio2 running ROS.

 

We’re getting ready for incorporating a couple of new features in our final release such as Wi-Fi broadcast and Access Point modes, so stay tuned! Full feature list, download link and further discussion of updated beta image (v2) for Navio board is available on our community forum

 

ReachView 2.0 Beta

After months of work and rewriting the app from the ground up, we are ready to introduce you to Beta of the new ReachView generation. We’ve used the past year’s experience and user feedback to rebuild the app.
