Did this issue only start for you all with the most recent app update? Did anything else change before this issue started?

Edit: Here's a test to try. When the gauges stop refreshing, start a log, wait a minute, then stop the log. Email me that log, jb4connectkit@gmail.com.
Ok, will do.

Is there something wrong with the JB4 app? The gauges keep freezing

Save the hex file to your device then use something like ES File Explorer to copy the hex file to /sdcard/JB4 Mobile Data/Firmware

Been having trouble last couple of days trying to connect to the JB4 with the android app. It would connect for a few seconds, long enough to read codes, then the connection would be lost and it would say serial port not available. Disconnecting the cable and re trying results in error connecting to JB4 please try again.

Its not my phone or OTG cable because I connect to the ECU with MHD just fine and all the time.

Bad USB cable? Serial port on JB4 fried or app not functioning?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Now this is confusing as none of the connection code changed in the last updates, especially with Android. Can you snap a short video showing the lag then freezing?

Hmm, is the usb port on your device loose at all? Do your cables move much while connected?

Dmac hi,

is there any way to display coolant temps?
on the N55 the JB4 can read coolant temps, 2-6 watertemp on fuel hijack
so i am sure you could program a display to show it?

If it's just a FUD value, that will display under FP_L. You'd just need the appropriate FUD value in the user adjustment settings page.

android requires the OTG cable, I haven't heard of anybody running bluetooth (but would be VERY interested!)

You definitely can use the bluetooth kits with an Android device as long as that device supports Bluetooth Low Energy.

I'll load it up on my bench setup and test here in a little bit, but I wouldn't think it'd be incompatible. Anyone else on firmware 31 using the app?

Yup, I updated to 31 via the app and have been running it without a single problem.

Couple of feature requests for the Android version:
- Make the app respect the device's orientation preference. Currently, if my device is locked to portrait, this app will still rotate if the device is turned.
- I saw the reasoning behind disabling the back button earlier in the thread... can it be made an option to re-enable the button?

Thanks in advance!

Is PID Gain within the App, the same as Menu 12 on the Steering Wheel Controls (Duty Cycle)? ...just wanted to confirm as defaults for each are identical at 25, I believe. If this is the case, these two items are no longer syncing now that I have ISO31 & your App (eg I increased Menu 12 on the Steering Wheel Controls to 28, however, 25 still remains under PID Gain in the App).

Anyways, I may just have these two parameters mixed up, but in case they are in fact the same, I just wanted to let you know of this issue.
