Problems encountered and solved..
« on: December 06, 2015, 12:31:56 PM »
Received the Blue Adapter recently and tried it out today on a BMW X3 F25 2011 2.0d - although the main vehicle will be a 2015 LR Puma Defender 2.2.

Initially struggled a bit to pair with the app on an iPad Air 1 - better to have the vehicle idling.

Took it for a test drive and the default gauges worked well - albeit in imperial values (I prefer metric values)

Switched off and later tried to input vehicle parameters - which on the app did not correspond to the vehicle parameters as when VIN was identified. Immediately had problems reconnecting/pairing - even though Bluetooth would be lit on Adapter and iPad would say connected - the app itself would effectively be disconnected. Eventually removed the "vehicle" from the app and restarted the iPad - which solved the problem.

Proceeded to update the Adapter to the latest version - 3 things of note here: do not leave the update screen until update completed - otherwise if you leave and return - the update starts from the beginning. This screen has 2 yellow bands - after update you will see the 2 "versions" abive the 1'st/top horizontal yellow band are the same. But on a previous/"back" on the main screen it seems the "main" version remains the same - currently mine displays 1.1.7

I appreciate the ease to remove the default gauges and also to recover them again - by a plain "long" press on the "gauge" part main screen - and also thereby to import a new screen - but how to arrange those gauges please - to get maximum amount of gauges per page in an eligible manner?

Thank you.

FYI, as of version 1.1.10 for Apple and version 1.7 for Androi.d, you can now download sample Gauge Page Layouts from the Cloud (and you can share your layouts as well).  This can give you some ideas on potential ways to layout your gauges based on how others are doing it. 
Similar to adding a gauge, just longpress on the Gauge Page background and select "WWW Download Page Layout".  You can then select "Download SHared Page Layout to grab a shared layout from the cloud (to view the available layouts, just click on the "(Click to View Page Layouts)" link.
