Android re-sorting data

Post by jp.fox » Wed Jul 18, 2018 6:26 pm

Hi,

Half way through a track day on Monday, I went to open Harry's Lap Timer on my Samsung S6 and it tried (and failed) to resort the GPS. It now does this every time I try to open HLT and I've even tried turning the phone off and on! Haha I did a search and found a guide on how to resolve the issue for IOS devices but cannot seem to find the equivalent guide for Android, does such a thing exist?

Thanks,
James

I'm having the same issue. Halfway through an endurance race when the phone died. I charged the phone powered it on and started the app and the resorting gets stuck at 201500 of 201762.

The link does not work and I do not get a popup asking to open HLT. Suggestions?

You open the link on your smartphone?

Correct, I'm using WiFi since the phone does not have cell service. I get a frowny face "404 page not found" screen with no pop up asking me to open.

Should I have the app already open on the resorting data screen or should the app open fresh from that webpage?

It seems like when I disconnect from Wifi and have the app already open on resorting data I can get that popup messgae to show up. However, it just goes to a black screen on Harry's LapTimer and does nothing.

Interesting, I can reproduce this with the latest version of Chrome. It looks like it does not respect the Android type deep linking fro apps... I tested another approach which is working: copy / paste the link http://gps-laptimer.de/laptimer/emergencystartup into a mail and send it to an account you can open on your smartphone. Open the mail once it arrives and press the link included. At least for my test device, this is allowing me to select LapTimer (or other of our apps) or Chrome.

Please kill LapTimer before touching the link. Otherwise, the app is sorting and will not allow the deep link interuption.

Thanks opening from email (Gmail) did the trick. Seems like it was a problem with the Chrome browser.
