Hi

I have used Skydemon now for about 10 months and it's been really good on my iPad with no issues.

I now use a Samsung Note 4 with Android 4.4.4 installed because of limited space in my flexwing microlight.

The problem is the screen goes blank after the timeout is reached if the screen is not touched. (This can be altered upto 30 minutes but no facility to disable the screen off feature). This is awkward to restart when wearing gloves in the open cockpit.

Is this a Skydemon issue or a settings issue within android that I can't find.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We tell the operating system not to switch off the screen while in navigation mode, and this has always worked fine. We've had a few reports that the new Lollipop version of Android might have broken this, but it's too early to tell properly as there are so many other problems with the Lollipop operating system.
I wonder if specific devices have their own software which ignores apps which request that the screen not be turned off, for your "protection".

Hi Swish
I have no experience with Samsung but this app solved the same problem with Nexus 7. It is called 'Wakey - keep your screen awake.' And for a couple of £ it does just that. You can even email the programer and he'll answer any questions you have.
Hope this helps.

I had my first flight today since the last upgrade and had some problems with SD 3.2.0.28307 on my Nexus 7 (2012) running Android 4.4.4

Like some others running Lollipop the screen kept blanking every few minutes uncommanded and the log trail wasn't appearing when navigating. On landing I found the logs were recorded, although there were some drop-outs in the virtual radar

SD has always been totally reliable before but something odd happened today and when I discussed it with a friend he said the same thing had happened - the screen turning off.

Is this a problem others have experienced?

I have a Nexus 5, SkyDemon was rock solid under KitKat but under Lollipop seems to randomly shut down requiring app restart or screen switches off sometimes instantly, sometimes after a few minutes.
