Hi All,

New BETA-3 UI not stable in overview of camera's. UI constantly fluctuating on/off all the time, while camera's are ON and no time-out of the Unleashed settings has been reached yet.
Very unpleasant to watch the UI be unstable like this. Try this yourselves with 3 or more Unleasheds!

I had to walk to the camera (undermost camera in the UI, red dot) and tap the trigger button physically to get it back to a connection (green dot) in the UI.

Logfile in next post.

Greetings,

Could you do a screen recording instead of screenshots?

Any advise on screen recording software for Android 8.1 devices? One that works and is easy to use?

I think it could be three options:
- Unleashed settings not optimized (fine tuned)
- Design/implementation wrongdoings: theory and practice not as planned/wished for
- Race conditions (state machine going banana's)

We finally were able to reproduce this issue and have implemented a fix right away.
This is almost definitely also the fix for "Stuck in IDLE" issue, but we're continuing to investigate.

The temporary solution is to
- turn off your external GPS (to stop the Unleashed from disconnecting reconnecting in a loop)
- unpair the external GPS
- remove camera battery
- reinsert camera battery.

And use the smartphone GPS for now.

We will issue an update with the fix soon.
