Bluetooth radio designs are selected by the specific Android phone/tablet manufacturer (not by Android/Google), so Bluetooth and Wifi radio performance varies dramatically across different Android devices.
Because Avi-on relies on the quality of the phone’s radio and antenna, the quality of the phone or tablet directly impacts the performance of Avi-on compatible products.
The quality of the phone radio impacts your Avi-on products because we support much longer range communications than conventional Bluetooth applications. Historically, Android was a little slow to embrace Bluetooth Smart (BLE), and some phone manufacturers have done a better job supporting the technology than others.
Avi-on tests our releases with literally dozens of phone models, but not all work as well as we would like. Compatibility issues we have found include the following items.
We are currently working on a number of improvements that we are hopeful will help address many of these issues.

Update your Avi-on app right away whenever there is a new release notice on your phone, we frequently issue improvements.
