Q Hi, Could you provide the PIC firmware to the Wand? I need to overwrite the default message to something else and there is no possibility to program it whenever it is switched on. Thanks, Nikolett
A Hi Nikolett, thank you for your question. Please see the data sheet which has the programming code.

Q how to program the pic controlar
A Hi Shyam. Thank you for your question. The PIC comes pre-programmed. The message can be programmed on the board once the kit is built.
