VESC Express

Hello,

I find the VESC Express a quite great tool for system improvement, however the tool itself could use a little debug.

- currently on my system the express tool connection settings (e.g. name, password, enable etc) are being reset to default after reboot or reconnection, so it practically it is not possible to change them. I was able to do so on FW6.00, but not anymore. Write function, and reload function works, but they would only take effect after reboot, which resets them. What is quite strange I was able to change once the name, but could not connect to phone.

- at FW6.00 and maybe at 6.02 as well, the password for BLE connection has to be the same length as default (6), but it is possible to change it to other length, but it wont work. It is maybe true for TCP key too. It should be noted or restricted if it shall stay 6.

Hi,
For anyone facing the same parameter change issue, this is related to the new firmware 6.02. It has a workaround though as Benjamin had shown it:

It would be convenient if known update issues would be noted in a stable released tool too..:) Wish I had paid more attention on what new videos Benjamin has.

Hi, I got the VESC express a few days ago from trampa. I've followed the manual as far as possible but i can't get the computer to recognize the vesc express USB-C as a COM port so i can't view it in vesc tool. Is there any drivers i need for my computer (win10) to recognize it? I've also tried connecting to it over CAN through my VESC but it wont recognize that either. Any ideas before i return it to Trampa?
Thanks
Craig
