What is wrong with this app or hotwire!? I have tried everything to get it to connect to my android device and it will not. It won't update either. I have uninstalled reinstalled cleared data and cache data. Almost looks like it's going to do something and then I get "hotwire not found"! Love the products guys but this thing has some issues

I have a S10. The problem seems to be permissions. The app wants location permissions but when installing it your choices are "while app is in use" or "deny ". The app is looking for complete permissions. There is no choice in the app to correct this. This is why the app will not work correctly. I have a Tab 4 and it too will not work correctly. Is there a fix for this?

Location permissions need to be granted, but we don't use your location for anything, it's just a part of the Bluetooth capabilities for devices like beacons, etc. During first startup, the app should just ask "allow" or "deny". Check your phone's settings, look in location and see if you have location services disabled for all apps.

I installed this app with the intent of updating my firmware on two gen2 ESC. It worked like a charm. It does exactly what it is supposed to do, however, I do have one criticism. Its freaking UGLY. My lord, the interface reminds me of a bad program created in the 90s put out by a 80s hair band.

Great to hear it's working perfectly, that's where we focus our main effort --performance. We also try to make our interfaces as cosmetically appealing as possible, which is why we hired a graphic designer that used to play guitar in a speed-metal band. His work is rad.
