Re: Explorestars crashing android 10, #Android

Hi Euan,

I am currently running it on my Samsung tablet and it seems to be working. I have repeated your failure steps a couple of times, did a 3-star alignment, and then slewed to M44.  All worked fine. No crash. I have Android 11. I also disconnected by closing the program and then restarted and the coordinates were read from the PMC-Eight correctly.  My current thinking is that it has something to do with your tablet, but it is very odd that it fails on both your tablets,  Not sure what to do since I cannot recreate your issue, Hopefully someone else will chime in and let us know if they are having problems or not.
