So far so good. For anyone struggling to connect, you need to allow location to connect to Bluetooth on newer Android devices. Once I figured that out, all is well.

Update now allows it to work on Amazon Tablet. Thanks as it didn't work on any 4 of our devices since Christmas and we were eager to use it. Will test on Weiwei P30 and 20 later.
