New Products Questions

The new products that were recently announced look great. However, I have a few questions about them that I haven’t been able to find answers to.

  1. What is the range of the new VexNet system?

  2. With the new VexNet system I know you are able to communicate with a robot and a PC by plugging the joystick into the computer. Is there any new information about just plugging in a VexNet usb adapter into the computer to communicate with a robot, and skip the entire joystick step?

  3. Is there any new information about the trade in system? I read somewhere, I forget where, that if you buy the VexNet upgrade kit for the PIC microcontroller .5 you can trade it in for credit towards the new VexNet system…Is this trade in system still going to be offered?

  4. What are the new programming options for the Cortex controller?

It sounds like there is a new version of EasyC coming out and a new version of Pro coming out, just for the Cortex. Also what about RobotC…?

I know I have a lot of questions and I bet a lot of other people do, I just want to find out more details about the new parts before spending $400…

Thanks,
