Hi, I received this e-mail that I thought would be of interest to Emlid users, about the just released update for FieldGenius for Android Update on March 1st. I was only able to download it yesterday on March 6th, so I haven’t had time to look into the new features/refinements.
Of interest to Emlid users particularly, is that have updated the driver to address Bluetooth reconnection issues. I was having some problems with it disconnecting intermittently from the rover, so we shall see if this corrects that problem.
Below is the text from their update notice:
