Hello,

What is the purpose of the H/C Power port? What can be attached to this port? Thank you.

It's a 12V output (connects basically directly to the 12V input, though through the reverse polarity diode). The idea was it could be used to power a hand-controller if I ever get that far.
There is also a current limited PWM output (open-drain) designed to be used to drive something like a polarscope LED. But I haven't gotten around to implementing that in software yet.

Hello Tom,

Thank you for the information. After I sent the question, H/C was hand controller power. I was hoping for a Bluetooth FM receiver type device to add Bluetooth. 12V is not friendly to these types of devices.
