SkySafari 7 Plus (v7.0.3, 1044) Calendar Button Crashes App When Connected To Celestron WiFi

The 'Calendar' option is blank and locks  up the program on my IPad.  Exiting the program & going back in clears up the blank page. This feature works fine on my Iphone.

    I just discovered that when you run SS7+ without being connected to my Celestron Sky Portal module, the 'Calendar' function works fine. But when I connect to the module's WiFi (Celestron-D16) to connect SS7+ to my telescope mount; the problem occurs: blank 'Calendar' screen & locked-up.

    So I guess the moral of the story is read the 'Calendar' before starting to connect to telescope mount & aligning...

    Kepler, 

    Developers can review this issue.  We can have a better response when the Calendar icon is selected.  It does not work because when connected to Celestron WiFi you are no longer connected to the internet.

    Thanks for your report.

    Please let me clarify: I am using the 'Access point' setting on my IPad, but I have to use the 'Direct connect' setting on my Celestron SkyPortal module to make a working connection between telescope & SkySafari 7 Plus on my IPad. I have not been able to make a connection w/ the 'Access point' setting on the module; I get the error message that I have a connection, but the telescope is not working: no power &/or no connection. The module is third-generation (Celestron-D16).  My 'successful' setting arrangement so far seems to be working w/ my home's network because I can operate the telescope from afar (50'+) in the house behind closed doors, but cannot access the 'Calendar' option. Anymore insights on this situation will be much appreciated. Respectfully, Kepler T.
