Default Issues with RD and EL

Running a Galaxy S5 on Android 6 with latest available patches. EL is v2.1.9.2.

Multiple issues. Sometimes in the app with the RD on, the bluetooth icon is red and won't let me click on it. Most of the time if I force close the app and re-open it will connect. There are also times when I am able to click and it tells me there is no device available.

Today with EL and the bluetooth icon on the RD it wouldn't show me speed even though EL was reporting speed; just the icon. Also I had the RD detecting a strong K band but EL didn't recognize it for almost 45 seconds. I have seen this before with EL not recognizing it at all.

I have also seen problems when clicking on the bluetooth icon in EL and it saying something about the RD not being initialized.

I also used with the live cable today in a different car and my redline and it has a lot less issues as of now.

I have unpaired and repaired a few times with the IX and I still have issues with it auto connecting. Sometimes it requires me to just click the icon and others I have to close the app multiple times.

Also had a bunch of app crashes today and sent the reports in.

You aren't trying to connect with a older live cord on a newer detector with built in BT right?

Thank you for reporting this.

You mention "IX". If you mean ESCORT iX then make sure you are not using a SmartCord Live cord with it. Use the SmartCord that came with it. Be sure to un-pair the SmartCord Live cord from your phone.

Also, when exiting the Escort Live app be sure to use the phone's back button and you should get a prompt to exit Escort Live. Do not force close Escort Live or you will have bluetooth connection issues the next time that you use Escort Live.

No. I have an iX in my Subaru and an older redline with a live cord in my A4.

I'll make sure I don't force close the app. Do I have to have the live chord unpaired all the time. I use 2 different detectors. Not at the same time. One in one car and the other in my second car.

I took a picture today of the BT icon on the iX and the detector not initialized on my phone. I'll try and upload later.
