iOS 6 WiFi problems

There are quite a few reports on the internet about devices not beeing able to connect to Ad Hoc WiFi networks after updating to iOS 6.

So if you are running iRegatta with NMEA input from a Ad Hoc WiFi network, you should consider to pospone your iOS 6 update till iOS 6.0.1 (or what ever the first maintainance release will be) is available.

iOS6

With the new iOS (and the development tools that come with it), the original iPhone and iPhone 3G will no longer be supported. It'll no be possible to submit updates that support these devices.
iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S and 5 will still be supported.

All 3 iPad generations should still be supported, even though iPad1 won't be able to upgrade to iOS6, but that doesn't effect iRegatta.

Android versions will be discontinued

iRegatta will be discontinued on Android platform by October 2012.
Only iOS version will be supported and continue development!

This also goes for droidAIS.

This is due to the challenges to make iRegatta and droidAIS work on all Android devices.
Some devices perform allright, others fail, behave strange or are limited.
Some Android implementations are malicious or not reliable, while others perform floor less.

This makes it hard (or close to impossible) to create an app that performs as expected and has the quality level I would like to supply.

Lost TCP connection - help is on it's way on iOS

Some iPhone/iPad user experience that they are loosing the connection to a NMEA to WiFi device after some time (depending on hardware).
The TCP protocol doesn't help detecting this problem, as only a sending device will realize that the connection is broken, a receiving device get's no errors, it just keeps waiting for data.

Forums are closed

Due to heaps of Forum spam, I've decided to close down the forums.
I tried all kind of measures, but forum hackers keep posting, and I don't wan't to use any more time for daily cleanup and IP-blocking.

Sorry for this to all "real" forum users.

UPDATE:
I've created a new forum at an external forum provider. All old posts are lost (sorry for that), but I hope this will give us a forum without anoying spam!

Some Android devices "lie"

iRegatta checks up with the device what features are available, but unfortunately som devices return wrong informations, that may cause iRegatta to crash.
We've seen some cheap tablets bought with the sole purpose to run iRegatta with WiFi input. Some of these devices have no GPS, but when iRegatta "asks Android" if there's GPS available, Android returns YES, causing iRegatta to crash when the non-existing GPS is initialized.

iPhone/iPad problems after update to 3.xx.x

Some users experience emidiate crash after startup, after updating to version 3.xx.x from a 2.xx version.
This seems to be caused by a saved app state from the previous version, that lead to a crash, or maybe it's caused by this issue.

The workaround is to remove iRegatta from the device (long tap on the iRegatta icon and then press the X in the upper left corner), and reinstall it from the App Store. Don't worry - the App store won't charge you again.

iRegatta 3.01.0 features

3.01.0 for Android has been released, and is in the review process at Apple for release to the App Store.

Besides a few bug fixes, 3.01.0 now allows waypoints and routes to be edited.
In iOS, tap the "Edit" button in the waypoint list view, and tap the waypoint or route you want to edit.
In Android just long tap on the item, and choose "Edit" from the popup.

Count Down in the start view can now be adjusted from within the view. Use the new + and - buttons.
