I have been running the new version for a few minutes now. Appears to work much better than the previous version (downloaded yesterday afternoon). Works nicely on my inexpensive smart phone. LG motion.

Stays connected.

Thanks for the work!

Graham,

It's been 12hr+ and it is still connected. All seems well.  I dear not try to call up my other classics.

Cheers...
Damani

That's encouraging, thanks for testing it.

Ok,

I have this thing worked out now. Whenever I get disconnected I simply restart my tablet and then I get back on. I have found that I can get to my other classis by keeping the app in autoscan, go to settings and then click on apply (at the bottom left od the screen) without changing any of the settings and it simply scan onto the next classic.


Cheers...
Damani

So much easier to glance at the phone while watching a movie (In Recliner) to check on statuses rather than having to get up (A pain, upsets the cat laying on you) and walk over to see the Classic. LOL

The newest version is staying connected for me also on Galaxy S . It is night and not much going on now so will check it when the sun is up or I get up which ever is later !  Do you think you could put a Whizbang monitored amp  meter on it with a positive / negative needle ?  If so this will be a few steps ahead of what was recently requested for the Local Status app .
 Thanks again  for this nice app.

When I tried it this morning it seemed like it was stuck on some bogus readings. But I changed the Classic from DHCP to Static and put in the static ip on the app and it works perfectly.

Is your 'system 2' and  'system 1' at the same location / network?, just wondering if the morningstar is responding to a modbus request at address intended for the classic

Yes - the Morningstar and Classic are both plugged into the same router.

Go my WhizBangJr yesterday, updated my app to display bi-directional battery current.

get the .apk at https://sourceforge.net/projects/classicmonitor/

some of my projects docs etc  http://farrelltonsolar.wordpress.com/

also check out another one of my solar related projects http://solartracker.codeplex.com/

Graham,

I have updated even though I don't have a WBJr installed as yet. I app is running fine, it has it little quirks but I am very happy with it. Keep up the good work dude. I like you just need to touch the battery current gauge and it flips so you can see the WBJr info(I don't have any WBJr info to see so it is just a blank screen)

Cheers...

I'm tinkering with this app on my spare time, there are a number of placeholders for future development, the whizbangjr details will eventually show up when you tap the battery current gauge, since you don't have a whizbangjr, this should be disabled for you, your battery amp gauge should not display as bidirectional +/- amps.
Other things I'd like to do when I have time are;
Calendar view to show khw/day, float achieved, generator used...
Charts hourly, daily...
Support for multiple CC by swipe up/down
Support for other CC, morningstar...
Some kind of SOC display??

Thanks Grahm - can't wait to get back out to my solar setup to try the updated Whizbang meter part of your app.

Would it ever be possible to have it show the Whizbang interpreted to watts ?  Always nice to see what something is drawing in watts when you plug it in .

Your other solar projects look interesting too - I will have to read up more on them later.
