Air Manager crash on Samsung Galaxy Tab

#1 Post by flyatr »

Hi guys,

it's my first test with Android and FS2020. The tablet runs Android 4.4.2 and AM is 4.0 The Windows plugin is the latest.
Without wifi I can use AM but as soon as there is a connection (manual as well as auto) the app crashes. I briefly get a message "connected to FS2020 on ...ip adress.

How can I fix this?

Thanks, Tobias

Android 4.x is very very old (15 years). In theory it should work, but there's probably something like a missing dependency, or a driver which is buggy, or hardware not properly supporting everything.

The problem with Android is that it's not guaranteed to work. With Apple you exactly know the specifications of the hardware and software, so you know that it is going to work or not. With Android it's more of a guideline, certainly no guarantee.

Just out of interest have you tried doing a factory reset of the tab? Not just a reset,a complete factory reset.
Also, Samsung include so much bloatware (crap). Just try complete reset and the disable or uninstall as many applications from samsung as possible. Also turn off auto updatas..most important. !!. Only updateanything..even android files if absolutely necessary and then only one at a time. This is being typed on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S. I use it every day. If I let it auto update it rapidly ecomes unusable for everyday tasks.

Hello,

I have acquired a used tablet running Android 6. App still crashes on connect!
The problem must be somewhere else...
Please assist

Okay I have tried a complete reset and no auto update + deactivation of unnecessary apps. Doensn't make a difference.

Device is an ODYS Thor 10 with Android 6.0.1
The frustrating thing is that I can see the needle of an airspeed indicator moving on connect but then the app crashes.

Back in 2019 AM was compatible with Android 4 (viewtopic.php?p=13677#p13677). Now it doesn't even run on Android 6?

So what are the requirements then?

Cheers,
Tobias

There will be an update for Android in a few weeks, it might do something. We also have older devices and it works fine, so it's hard to say. You can give the update a try, we might have a beta a little sooner.
