SynScan Pro Version 2.0.6 Android App On Google Play (Message From SynScan Developers To The SkySafari + SynScan Users)

We just released SynScan Pro app version 2.0.0 on Google Play.

This is our first version of SynScan app developed with QT, yet we have not figured out how to keep the app running in the background and acting as a TCP server. As a result, your Skysafari app will not be able to work with this version of  SynScan Pro normally to control a Skywatcher mount. We will continue to work on this issue.

As a temporary solution, we suggest our users make use of the Freeform feature provided by Android and run the SynScan Pro app in a smaller floating window while using Skysafari.

    I tried the latest, 2.0.3 version of the SynScan Pro app. Even that doesn't work. It sends this error message when trying to connect: "Connection Failure / SkySafari Pro can make a wireless connection to the scope, but the scope is not responding..."

    The version 1.19.16 still works fine.

    Hello Kieron,
    can you please detail more what you mean by the workaround using freeform and a floating window. Will that allow the connections to work? When will the bug be solved? Thank you, Jan
