Started the New Year with the same issue as you folks. I'll try a factory reset, but don't have much hope.

Edit: as expected, factory reset did not fix problem.

Cosmo Communicator - General Discussion / Car Cup Cosmo Mount
« on: October 16, 2020, 11:35:12 am »

A suction mount makes me a little nervous, so I wanted the secure cup mount and this mount fits the bill, and so does the reasonable price.

The Cosmo is held by a spring-loaded clamp that has enough padding to protect the device from the tight grip. Releasing the Cosmo is a little tricky, since you have to pull back the grip and retrieve the phone at the same time.

That's my only reservation. All else is fine, the adjustability, the security, the price.

Whether it's worth the hassle of mounting/unmounting, I don't know yet. I have a 2016 Accura, whose dashboard gps is recessed enough to sit the Cosmo inside, on top of a no-slide mat. The Cosmo is not as visible as when it's in a cup mount, but it's an easy in-and-out.

Mark, you did both COvID .bin installs, right?

Am I hallucinating, or did Planet get rid of the maddening Mute button on the COvID screen? If I'm not, THAT'S a relief, no more of people hanging up because they thought they had been disconnected.

Who truly knows, but when I hit check for updates, I get "Up To Date   CODI version is the latest"

So it sounds as if you're in some kind of loop. Could be because of your manual install. I assume you've played with all the features of "Advance" to see if they will let you do a full install.

And yeah, COvID is my new name for this display, patent pending.

Jake

Edit: you could try clearing COvID's storage/cache

Sorry for the travails, Mark. When you hit "check for updates" in COvID, does it say "Up To Date"?

Finally got CODI updated. It may have been in airplane mode, but I'm not certain--I was lost in my many attempts. cam1965 has the great idea to clear CODI storage/cache, which I think is key after a failed update.

Also, there are two CODI downloads--image and firmware. If you can update image and firmware fails, do not close out or clear cache. Otherwise, you have to flash the image again. Stay in the CODI update screen and keep trying to flash firmware. That eventually worked for me.

Of course, just because Pandora's finally out of her box doesn't mean all is well...

Cosmo Communicator - Android / v22 is coming this week

I concur--other than the phone exploding against my face, V22 can't make it worse.

Cosmo Communicator - Hardware / Cosmo Reboots during Long Phone Call
« on: June 03, 2020, 09:42:34 am »
Thank you for the unfortunate confirmations. Thinking back, yeah, I guess that did happen with my Gemini, but that was a time when I wasn't on the phone as much, or as long, so the issue wasn't as pressing.

I'm weary of the hardware problems, both mine and others'. I hope that new firmware will solve them, and I'm relieved that I passed on the Astro.

Cosmo Communicator - Hardware / Cosmo Reboots during Long Phone Call
« on: June 02, 2020, 04:40:36 pm »
Given the general crappy state of the world, I now have to be on long calls with various agencies (US/Tmobile).

Twice this past week, about 20 minutes into a phone call, the screen will go black, the call will disconnect, and the Cosmo will reboot. (Both times, the phone was on speaker)

Do others have this complaint?

Cosmo Communicator - Hardware / Mute/CoDi Issue
« on: May 31, 2020, 05:11:12 pm »
@Zarhan--Thanks for at least trying to tell PC. I'll just have to train myself not to press too hard, or cradle the phone at all.

Cosmo Communicator - Hardware / Mute/CoDi Issue
« on: May 30, 2020, 09:57:32 am »
I find myself frequently muting the call by holding the phone too close to my cheek and inadvertently activating the on-screen mute button on CoDi.

I can't imagine there's much to do about this, other than a CoDi firmware update that would allow users to pick which buttons they want.

Cosmo Communicator - Android / Missed Phonecalls?
« on: May 13, 2020, 01:34:39 pm »
THANK you for an extremely helpful post. From my testing today, it would seem that you found the problem. I sometimes even have late texts, and when I switched in and out of airplane mode, a text came right in.

One of the weird factors is that this happens predominately on 4G. But perhaps TMo is dumbing down the G's without me seeing it, or perhaps even a dip from 4G to 3G is enough to upset the network.

I'm not certain of anything except your accurate assistance. Much, much obliged,

Jake

Cosmo Communicator - Android / Missed Phonecalls?

Specs: Cosmo, V21, Tmobile in US

Occasionally, a call to my phone will go directly to voicemail. When I test, as in "Could you call me right now?", the call rings the phone normally.

Does anybody else have this issue? Can't tell if it's the Cosmo or Tmobile, though my wife has a Samsung/Tmobile and doesn't suffer this.
