So here is the weird/interesting part of all of this.

I have another Android tablet that I downloaded install the App on and I was able to connect up without a problem.

So it appears to be a problem with the one specific Android tablet, BUT, up until recently I had not had a problem with this specific tablet.

So the problem tablet is a Samsung Galaxy Tab A Model number SMT350 with Android Version 6.0.1 installed. I do not believe there have been any updates SINCE I purchased the Mooshimeter, but it may be possible. Looking over the About Device the most recent updates appeared to be Nov 16, 2016. I did not order the meter until Nov 18, 2016.

The older Android tablet that seems to play nice is a LG V400 with Android version 5.0.2.

The only thing that I can see that is different is the Samsung (problem tablet) has the BT connection show up and seems to want to Pair, the LG tablet does not appear to require/attempt to pair. Maybe there is a newer “security” feature that was added/updated for the Bluetooth connection??

Anyone else have ideas/thoughts??

Maybe there is some hook needed in the App to have the newer Android OS ignore attempts to pair the Bluetooth for the meter??
