Cosmo Communicator - Android / Hotspot turns off
« on: February 05, 2020, 12:27:14 pm »
The Hotspot on the Cosmo keeps turning itself off even though I have set it to NOT do that.

1. Does anyone have a work-around for this? Even with Duraspeed turned off it keeps happening.
2. Would Tasker help?

Cosmo Communicator - Android / Bluetooth Watches
« on: November 20, 2019, 11:49:46 am »
I have tried 2 different watches with the Cosmo, and I am having the same issue I had with the Gemini - which I never solved with the Gemini and had to carry a second device to sync the watch.

Whenever the Cosmo goes to sleep, the watch will eventually disconnect, thus getting no notifications. My first try was my Pebble. It worked fine with my Pixel 3 and Android 9 or 10. I did not work with the Gemini either. The Pebble App kept running at all times, but the Bluetooth connection would go away.

Since the Pebble was an older watch, I decided to try a new watch, so I purchased an Amazfit Bip. It also would disconnect, but for a different reason - the AmazFit would eventually get kicked out. I tried setting the app to "Not Battery Optimized", and Bluetooth to "Not Battery Optimized", but the app still gets killed.

So...I am ready to blame the AmazFit app for being improperly written to stay as a Foreground Process as the reason it is getting recycled, but:

1. Is there anyway to keep the Bluetooth connection alive when the device sleeps so I can use the Pebble?

2. Is there anyway to keep the AmazFit app from being recycled?

3.Has anyone had success with a smartwatch staying connected and receiving notifications when the Cosmo sleeps? It all works as long as I keep the Cosmo plugged in, as I have developer options setup to prevent the device from sleeping when it is plugged in.

Cosmo Communicator - Hardware / USB-C

My biggest hope is that there is an improvement in the functionality of the USB-C ports. I have the USB-C hub, and you can choose to either charge through it (making the hub unnecessary), or use it as a hub without charging. I am using the Gemini with a Sentio SuperBook which only supports USB-on-the-go video (no HDMI input), so this means I can only use the Gemini with it on Battery Mode. It would be REALLY nice if one of the ports was a full USB-C port that supported true HDMI out, USB peripherals and charging, like most laptop USB-C ports do - e.g., Macbook. That might be too much to ask, so any improvement in the USB-C ports would be appreciated.
