LinkIt ONE updates
LinkIt update requests:
-Antennas for the LinkIt to be on the board (at least the GPS). The GPS is heavy.
-Make it so that the SD card can be accessed at the same time the serial to computer is running.
-Have an external power pins for powering the unit and charging the battery.
-Move the microSD card away from the USB connection.
We’ll take all those suggestion into consideration while updating the new version. Thanks for your share.

Adding Apple HomeKit hardware support to the LinkOne for Apple-required authentication & encryption would be very powerful.
Also it is extremely useful to equip LinkitOne with meaningful status LEDs which show what the board currently is doing – is it connected? Does it get into GPRS-Mode? Does it transfer data at the moment?
Also Grove connectors can be moved to a location (horizontal instead of vertical) such that these can be used while using grove shield simultaneously and see if ethernet could be added.
We are unable to use LinKit ONE for our projects if the only Power Supply available is by the micro USB connector (specially for vehicle mounted devices), we will appreciate to consider the suggested changes, thank you!!
Is a great product and we would like to use it in future developments. Thank you in advance!!
an external power supply pin should be great
Thank you! We will collect all the problem then make a upgrade version.
