Ability to use external encoders on a brushed motor with a spark max motor controller

Hey, me and my teammates have been experimenting with the spark max motor controllers and we were wondering if there is currently support or a plan for there to be support for external encoders on non-neo motors such as a sim.

It looks like you can use one of these breakout boards to wire an external encoder to the encoder port of the SPARK MAX. I haven’t actually used them yet, so I can’t say whether the software handles the external encoder properly yet.

According to the trello I don’t think so

In theory Ari is right, but I have no idea how good the software support for it is.

There is not software support for encoders in brushed mode. You can track the progress on this trello card.
