I'm looking to use Simple Serial with an Arduino Uno.

I've been having trouble configuring the roboclaw to function correctly with the Arduino. Based on the manuals and looking through various forum posts, I know the the transmission pins is Arduino Pin 6 and receive is Pin 5. I have the program set to Mode 5 and Option 3. The LB-MB jumper is installed. I have my setup configured exactly like the schematic drawn.

In the manual, the comment in the sketch says "Switch Settings: SW2 = ON and SW5 = ON." I'm not quite sure how to configure the switch settings since it doesn't say in the tutorials. I have a 2x5A v3 roboclaw so I don't even know if I'm using the correct manual at the moment. Thanks for all the help.

The comments are for the older boards. The latest versions of roboclaw use buttons instead of dip switches to set the different modes. Make sure you use the manual to set your modes.
