    Hey there.I found out that the original PLX DAQ can only be used with Excel 32 bit versions. Error message is "object not available on this machine" due to selmaDAQ_Ver2.ocx that is not 64 bit compatible)You can check out the new version I developed with full Office support (32 bit and 64 bit and versions up to Office 2016) on the official Arduino board here: https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=437398.0If you have any questions I will try to answer them on the board of course :-)The new module is now open code and can be enhanced if needed.Greetings and don't be frustrated anymore!

    The code on your Arduino can still be used - no need to change anything. It is 100% compatible :-)Only the code in the Excel VBA macro was changed but as a user you won't even recognize that. It's just working as usual but with all versions of Excel / Office now

    Phone GPS repair

    Hi there. Well, sorry to say but my wife technically forbid me to further optimise the GPS antenna because I have kind of a habit to optimise things to death (FUBAR death).... so I just tried more sticky tape and as you said the case wasn't able to close correctly anymore and I guess the tension wouldn't exist otherwise to support the contacts. Two layers sticky tape was the max I could fit in there.Anyways, thanks again :-) I really enjoy tracking my position everywhere by now :-)

    Phone GPS repair

    What a great tutorial dude ! Thanks a lot !Lately my GPS just went off completely and I was literally LOST ; like on the highway with 0 GPS information. Today I let myself be navigated through the woods with 10 of 21 (according to GPS Status). GORGEOUS !! Error rate of 2 meters!Do you think more sticky tape and even more foils could boost the connectivity to like 20 of 21 with error rate like 0,005 meters? Or is more not always better and 10 is still the best?
