I am suddenly unable to find any beacons using the Proximity Demo on the Estimote Android App or the test app that I’ve built from the Estimote Android Monitoring Tutorial.This used to work fine until yesterday for both apps.
I’m using a VFD 1100 tablet with Android version 6.0. I’ve restarted the tablet, did a factory data reset and a network settings reset. When I reset the network settings, sometimes the tablet is able to find 1 to 3 beacons (never the same) using the Estimote Android app but not with the test app. Sometimes all 3 of them appear at the beginning and then after a few seconds 1 or 2 disappear and I’m unable to find them anymore. Also,in the first scan (using the Proximity Demo) after resetting the network settings the tablet can usually find a least one beacon but if I go back to the menu screen and try it one more time, again I can’t find any of them.
I am able to find all 3 of them using another iBeacon detector on my android tablet. I’ve also downloaded the Estimote App on my iPhone and I have no problem detecting the beacons so this is probably not a problem related to the beacons.
I am inclined to think that there’s a problem with the tablet or that I did something to the bluetooth adapter while testing my own app even though all I did is play a bit with the setBackgroundScanPerior and setForegroundScanPeriod methods.
Any help or thoughts would be appreciated…
