Hello,

I just purchased a CYALKIT-E02 with a solar powered BLE beacon. I put it in sunlight and installed the Cypress BLE Beacon App in my Android 10 phone (from Google Play). However, it can't find any device.

I can see the device with a generic BLE Scanner App though.

Also, I noticed that the Cypress BLE Beacon App has not asked me for "Location" permission. If I go to the app permission settings, it only asks for "Storage" and not for "Location". I just can't find "Location" in the app permissions list.

I know from past projects that "Location" is required for any Bluetooth APP to work. 

Have anyone had this issue?

Thanks

Hello,

Could you please let me know in which mobile you are seeing this issue ?

Did you check with any other phones ?

Thanks,

P Yugandhar.

Hello Yugandhar,

thanks for your reply,

I just tried with my wife's iPhone 8 and it works! (Attached file)

On my android phone, if I scan with BLEScanner, I can see the beacon (Attached file)

My phone is an Ulefone Armor 9 with Android 10 , Kernel version 4.9.190+
The other non-working phone I tried is a Samsung Galaxy S8 with Android 9, kernel 4.4.111-18920278

I also tried downloading the .apk file from Cypress website but it has the same behavior: the "Location" permission is not listed among the app permissions for this app!

I also installed the App "CySmart" and it prompted a permission request for "Location", and I can see "Location" in the permission list for CySmart. I can also see the device with it but of course I can't connect to it or decode its advertising data with this app.

The Cypress BLE Beacon App I'm using is version 1.2.05

Help 🙂
