Hi there

it looks like it should be dead easy and there's even a predrilled hole for the LED.

but... ive just tried to do mine, taking the red wire from the chip to where the yellow was on the motor, and the black to the green (Having unsoldered the originals).  That seems to be the only electrical work needed from the instructions...

my result in the track was a small pop, a slight burning smell and I think something on the chip has burnt out.  Resoldered the originals and all is fine again in analogue mode...

have I missed something?

Hiya

Yep, also cannot calibrate cars with the latest app.  Legacy version of the app does work, but isn't as nice...

I look forward to the fix

Yep, getting the same thing with an iPhone 7...  the old legacy app does calibrate cars, but is nowhere near as nice with functionaility, registering bits of collection etc.

I look forward to the fix.
