Estimote Xamarin Android IBeacons not found


#1

Hello,

i use the estimote sdk for android and ios for a xamarin project to detect ibeacons with ranging.

(https://www.nuget.org/packages/Xamarin.Estimote.Android/
https://www.nuget.org/packages/Xamarin.Estimote.iOS/)

Under iOS it works like a charm, but under android the device is scanning and shows up some bluetooth devices, but not the ibeacons.
I implemented it, like in the native version with the listener.

Can someone help me please?

Thanks in advance.

Best wishes
Hannes

Hi Hannes,

The Estimote sdk version (https://www.nuget.org/packages/Xamarin.Estimote.Android) you are using is depreciated by Estimote.

I had also face the same issue. You could install another version using package manager :
Install-Package Estimotes-Xamarin -Version 1.1.0

But in version -1.1.0 , I unable to get the telemetry information of beacon, as i unable to connect to beacon.
I raised this issue to estimote but did not receive any response also unable to find any jar file to read only telemetry information of beacon for Xamarin.

May this help.

Thanks
