Receiving weird serial Data from Xbee

0 votes

So I have a project that has a remote Arduino with 3 sensors attached and an Xbee s2c connect to my computer with a usb. In XCTU the sensor data is all correctly received but when I open the Arduino serial monitor there are weird characters right before every line of data. I think it may be the start delimiter, length, frame type, 64-bit source address, and 16-bit source address. The weird characters are the exact same before every data point. Is there any way to fix this?

Sounds like the XBee is in API mode. Try using the proper libraries on the Arduino.
