    Hi folks,
    I finally had some time to update the app (v2.5).

    The flag issue should now be fixed. It will per default truncate the am/pm part and just display the 12h part. But one can also enable in the app settings an option where it will always send the 24h clock to the motorcycle. Because I think maybe the bike is able to interpret it and will display it as 12h/24h depending on language/unit setting on the bike. Unfortunately I don't have a 1290 to verify it that's why it's disabled per default.

    It also per default replaces now non printable characters with a similar latin character. Because the 390 and 790 Displays can't display non ascii chars (except äöuß it seems). If this is not necessary on the 1290 please let me know (one can also enable it in the settings)

    looking forward to your feedback

    Hi everyone.

    I am an owner of a new KTM 390 Adventure and I have some problems with the Turn-by-turn app. The first time I tried it, it worked flawlessly, but i can´t make it work again since. I tried it with another smartphone and the same thing happened. First time connection no problem and then I couldn´t make it work again.

    I am connected to the bike, bike recognizes my phone, my phone is also saying that it is connected. For example music controls work without a problem. But navigation doesn´t want to work (.

    My phone is Xiaomi Note 8. The second phone i tried it with (with the same result) was Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite.

    Thank you for any suggestions that might help.

    This is problem is caused by some special Xiaomi power saving feature which disabled part of my app after some time :(.

    I heard this fixes the issue:
    1. open the security app
    2. go to permissions
    3. go to auto start
    4. enable my app so that it can run in the background.

    Hope this resolves the problem for you
