Bought a second hand reef angel

Hi

Need some advice.

I bought a second hand reef angel. It does not have a usb 2 ttl cable. I am from South Africa and we have no RA dealers anymore. The cable costs $30 but shipping to SA is $55. that is more than I paid for the controller. Not worth it. So do I just go for the Bluetooth attachment instead?

NVM. I got confused with another user.
You can probably get a USB-TTL converter cable in SA.

Hi Roberto

Do you still sell the Bluetooth attachment? If I use the cloud WiFi can it remotely program my RA.
