setup for Fona 808 shield

by jeffrey on Sun Dec 16, 2018 10:16 pm

Using the MQTT and Fona libraries, I had a sketch working that published my GPS location and battery voltage feeds to Adafruit IO. I could never get a subscription to work. In digging though the forum I kept seeing that I should be using the new AdafruitIO library, so I tried that. It is much simpler, but I can't get it to work at all. The main problem (at the moment) seems to be that I am using the Fona shield and not the breakout. In my original sketch, I had to specify the pins for TX, RX, and Reset. How do I do that with the new IO library? Nothing in the example's config.h file in the Fona section addresses this.

I found where to change the pins to work with the shield. Still doesn't work, but at least I got that figured out.
