Re: [tracker2] Tracker 2 Cannot open serial port
I put a little solder on the tab of U8 and was very persistent with otwincfg, and reloaded the firmware. The Tracker seems to be working fine now.
Thanks for your help

Can you check the voltage regulator (U8 I think) on the right side of
the board and make sure the big tab is soldered down? We had a few of
those come through in the last batch that didn't get soldered well and
the ground tab pops loose. A few seconds with a soldering iron should
fix it, or you can send it back here and we'll check it out.
