2.e. Using the Arduino Software

Using the Arduino software with the Wixel shield for Arduino is not any different than using it normally, except that you will be programming on the COM port associated with a Wixel rather than one associated with your Arduino. In the Arduino IDE, select your Arduino board using Tools->Board and select the the COM port that corresponds to the Wixel connected to your computer using Tools->Serial Port. The upload button and the serial monitor will now work exactly like they do when your Arduino is directly connected to your computer via USB.
