Serial Data from Arduino to Max Getting Jumbled

    Apr 03 2013 | 4:05 pm
    Hi everyone,
    I have previously got serial data successfully into Max from a Adafruit NFC Shield, now I am using a GSM shield to get text message data in.
    The problem I am getting is if i text to Arduino it prints in the serial window fine, but as soon as i start polling the serial object in Max, data starts going missing, or the message splits its self between the Arduino window and my max patch?!
    Any ideas, cos Im a little stumped!

      Hi Oli
      When running the [serial] object in Max, you must have the Arduino serial monitor window closed. Both applications are chasing the one data stream. Not good.
