Configuring the upload parameters if you use a Mac

As stated, the Upload to Cloud feature is still in Beta.

Version 2.5 and later now supports the built-in screen command.

The driver for the serial port on the RID chip needs to be installed on your Mac.

To download the driver click here.

You should also read the detailed instructions in CH34X_DRV_INSTALL_INSTRUCTIONS.pdf

Now you can install the driver by clicking on CH34xVCPDriver.pkg in the .zip that was downloaded.

If you don't follow the instruction exactly the driver will not be installed. You also need to restart your Mac once the driver is installed.

Once the driver is installed and the Mac has been rebooted you need to launch the "Terminal" app.

Once you have the Terminal window do the following:

1: Plug in the RID Receiver into a USB port on the Mac

2. Enter "cd /dev" on the Terminal window

3. Enter "ls cu*" on the Terminal window

The terminal Window should now list 1 entry showing the name of the port

4. Now enter "screen xxxxx 115200" where xxxxx is the name of the port (115200) is the speed of the port.

5. Hit return a couple of times and you should see output from the RID Receiver.

If you ever want to get to the main menu enter 99 followed by a carriage return.

Here is some information regarding using an iPhone as a hotspot.

If you have a relatively new iPhone you need to go to settings-->Personal Hotspot and turn on Maximize Compatibility.
Once you have done that you need to power off your iPhone and power it back up.

If your iPhone is currently on a WIFI network it will not create a hot spot. You must disconnect your phone from all WIFI networks before it will create a hotspot.

If you don't want to take your phone off an existing wifi network you can select option 0 after scanning for wifi networks. This will allow you to manually enter your hotspot name and password. The chip will not be able to confirm the name and/or password are correct so make sure you enter everything correctly.

If you want the chip to connect to the hotspot network you might have to manually disable and re-enable "Allow Others to join" in the Personal hotspot settings.
