    What education set is the hub from? I didn't know the education sets with Duplo hubs were out already...

    I'd take that as a description of the current state of the platform. If LEGO were to say anything else they'd get an avalanche of questions on how to make it work right now. Not that I'm optimistic about the chances of it actually happening, but FAQs have been known to change over time.

    I didn't either, until I installed it on my tablet which (unlike my phone) doesn't have location turned on by default. Then I realised the Powered Up app asks permission to turn on location and does it for you if you grant it. That's a big improvement over Boost, which just tells you with a checklist that location is off and needs to be turned on before you can continue.

    Or maybe there is a different firmware version depending on how you want to use the hub (train or RC).

    Have you been able to test with a Powered Up hub to see if it advertises in the same way? Does the whole localName change or only a section of the localName? Is the localName the only piece of code that is advertised or are there other chunks of data that might indicate a hub type? So far we have WeDo, Boost and Powered Up hbs and no matter how I change my WeDo or Boost hub name, the Boost app will never detect a WeDo hub the WeDo app doesn't "see" the Boost hub either.

    I love the fact that you've been able to create your own app. What's the advantage of your app at this moment? Can you connect to more than one hub?

    The only thing that changes when you change the language is the content of the legal notices.

    Thanks. I hadn't realised Jorge had identified the chip and I was hoping you had opened up a unit :D

    Thanks for the breakdown! Did you post Boost pictures on EB? I can't seem to find any.
