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.
