V1.994 Bluetooth “fix”

V1.994 just hit the App Store today (2/5/2018) and introduces the cool new multi-platform logs! Very neat … however, it looks like a bluetooth fix that we also included might have caused some vehicles to drastically slow their sample rate down to 1 second or so intervals. This was some sort of unintended consequence, so first, we apologize! And second we are scrambling to isolate and get a bug fix up on the store. It usually take 48 hours (or so) for fixes to approved, so we appreciate the patience!

v1.994 Submitted to App Store for Review

A pretty major update to the way data logs works has been submitted for approve to Apple in the App Store (1/29/2018) This update will make logs MUCH more usable!  The same log that you capture and view on DashBoss is NOW PORTABLE across browser platforms!  Now you can use the same log file on PC, MAC, laptops, tablets, Android, etc. It will also import older version log files that you may have captured and saved … and it converts to the new format! We’re pretty excited about this and look forward to getting it in the field!  Normal review time is 3-5 business days, so I would expect this to be live on the App Store by the end of this week. Play around with the Data Log attached … click on the link and it should open in your browser. DATALOG SAMPLE Here’s a link to a quick video tutorial … DashBoss Cross Platform Logs

REV C TIP!!!

REV C TIP!!!

If you have a REV C DashBoss unit (see the silver sticker on the back … it will say REV C), there’s a trick you need to know when plugging and unplugging the gateway. Because of the way the authentication and bluetooth communications are “rolled into” a single chip now, you need to do do the following after unplugging your gateway and plugging it back into the vehicle. If you get a “DashBoss cannot connect” message, do the following: UNPLUG THE GATEWAY FROM THE VEHILCE Be sure the VEHICLE IGNITION IS ON Plug the gateway back in Go to SETTINGS->BLUETOOTH and tap on “I” and next to DASHBOSS and then do a FORGET THIS DEVICE Turn Bluetooth OFF for 3-5 seconds (use the SLIDER at the top of the list of devices in bluetooth) Turn Bluetooth back ON Now wait for it to find the DashBoss and then tap on it to connect ONCE IT CONNECTS YOU SHOULD SEE TWO SOLID BLUE LIGHTS … once you do, then start the App on the iOS Device Be sure to wait for the “Loading Parameters, this might take a few minutes” has finished before starting the displays
