Szia Tom!
A DA2 probléma nélkül működik a lányom samsung telefonjával. A telefonom a Land Rover Explore 2018-as verziója, ahogy említettem, 8.0 android fut rajta. Amikor megpróbálok csatlakozni a vevőhöz, ritkán villogó "nulla" jelenik meg a TMM kezdőlapjának képernyőjén (a műhold ikon sarka). rendben. Köszönöm a segítséget! Hogyan tudom letölteni a naplófájlt?
(I tried to use the phone's in developer mode too without any result....but maybe the source of the problem is in the android)

Hi Motkó Béla
I've successfully ran the DA2 on a device using BT 4.1 (Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo - G903F)  without any issues.
Not a rigorous field test by any means but as a proof of concept the comms work fine and were stable for several hours with the Trimble Mobile Manager app

I would suggest you send the log files through with a description of this problem and someone on the support team can take a look and get back to you with more detail

The DA2 landed yesterday. Very nice, seems it will be useful in the field. Unfortunately there is no connection between the D2A and my phone. It is ok. The leaflet suggestions is clear and simple. My phone has android 8.+ with 4.1 bluetooth...maybe it would be the problem? The catalyst specs write that need 4.2 but i read that there is a forward combatibility relations 4.1 vs 4.2. My phone and Catalyst see each other despite no build the connection insade the TMM app. What is the problem? (I need a new phone?)
Thanks, Bela
