Latest update crashes on startup every time :-( Have had no end of trouble getting this app to work over the past year, but it's now completely useless. When I tried to do a paid renewal of the downloadable offline topographic maps via Play Store all I get is an error message. If you are no longer prepared to support this product, please open it up.

I want to love these but either of my two devices will disconnect from my phone after about 20 minutes and will not automatically reconnect. I have to power cycle the device to reconnect with the app. That makes it pretty useless in the backcountry where I was trying to use them.

The app is amazing setting aside the learning curve for the goTenna is all about the power cycle itself. The relay mode and shoot functions are amazing. IM sure once people understand pairing the device it's easier.
