Welcome to the Meshtastic community

Meshtastic is a project that lets you use inexpensive ($30 ish) GPS radios as an extensible, super long battery life mesh GPS communicator. These radios are great for hiking, skiing, paragliding - essentially any hobby where you don’t have reliable internet access. Each member of your private mesh can always see the location and distance of all other members and any text messages sent to your group chat. Please join us in making this happen.

We try to have a very friendly group of co-developers/users on this project. So if you have questions please post them here. If you know the answer to a question, please help by replying. If you wanna work on this or a related project we will help also.

Note: the former based page was getting too unwieldy. Please use this forum instead (and nothing is perfect, but this forum software is very nice, open-source and allows images and fast thread replies - so they also work as chat).
