Connecting to WiFi is quirky but I think I found out the issue. When you initially try to connect in point to point mode, you have to disable mobile data on the phone. Once I disabled this I got a connection immediately, then moved it over to my home WiFi with DHCP reservation and has worked well ever since. My only issue is that the calibration max values cannot be adjusted enough, at -20 I'm still 7 away from my calibrated digital temp gauge and 30 away from the max. The food reading however seems to be within +-2 so that's good
The WIFI connection continually stops working...very frustrating when you are halfway through a cook and the connection drops out and will not reconnect...has happened many times. The only way to reconnect is to reset the whole controller and to do this you need to turn off the grill no good halfway through the cook ☹...i will admit when working it is very user friendly...😊
Took two RMA controller replacements and a just-released firmware update. Stays connected reasonably well now. Now just silly stuff: alerts that the grill has reached the set temp when the display is still 2 degrees F below the set temp. Math is hard... On the vendor response saying a few degrees doesn't matter: 1. Alert: grill is *almost* at temp. If you really can't wait to tell me the grill is at temp when it isn't. 2. The 2 degree round up affects the food probe as well. So when I'm waiting for the food to hit the desired temp, and the food temp can take several minutes to rise a single degree, your 2 degrees "doesn't matter" starts to fall apart.
The app is nice and i was successful in connecting to server mode. However, the major downfall is that you have to repeat the entire connection process every time you unplug the girl. This includes going from point mode, to wifi mode, to server mode, every time. Please allow the grill to autoconnect to the app whenever the grill is plugged back in.
Great app and very user friendly. It would be nice to have a button like a cool down feature that you could press which would have the grill drop to fan mode to cool down then shut off. I could shut it down once I reached temperature and let it rest in the grill while the grill cools down and shuts off. I would also like to be able to set a Start time so I could put the meat on at 8am and set a Start time for noon and have it crank up to temperature and cook while I am away without ever going in to start it. That would be useful for putting the meat on before bed and then it cranking up at like 5am so I don't have to actually get up. (I'm in Colorado so the meat would stay cool overnight on the grill, just like in the fridge) I do have a little trouble connecting sometimes. I have the latest firmware on my grill and this app is up to date. Sometimes it disconnects too during my cook. It should be able to run in the background 24/7 if I want it to. Overall, it's an awesome app paired with a badass grill. My Traeger buds are jealous and will be listing their Traegers on CL soon and upgrading!
I tried to setup the app and connect with 4 different android devices. No luck. I setup and connected to my wife's and son's icrap with no problems. I'm not going icrap so I guess I need to keep my wife longer. Sure wished the kinks got worked out on the android app.
