My licensed Nano Elecraft 1.5.0 does not work well for me. I have a RRC setup with K3/0-Mini to K3 with original RemoteRig cables working with no problems. All RRC's have software version 2.90.

When I start my licensed Nano Elecraft 1.5.0 and connect I get the sound from the K3 within a few seconds. However none of the controls in the Nano app on the VFO page works and neither RX S-meter nor VFO frequencies are displayed. Sometimes after 4-5 minutes the controls starts to work. However after turning the VFO wheel the VFO frequency is displayed as a difference like 2.90 or -0000.000.001 It is now possible to press and hold where the frequency should be displayed and then the box for entering a frequency is displayed. After entering a frequency it is displayed correct and turning the VFO in the app changes the A-frequency as expected. Pressing A/B and then press and hold where the frequency should be displayed let me enter a frequency in the B-VFO, which then is displayed in line B. Now the app is more or less usable, however RX S-meter still only shows -- and BW is grayed out and does not work. Mode button works but the selected Mode is not displayed. Band button works, but the indicated frequency is not changed in the app.

My phone is a HTC 10 with Android 6.0.1. It also has a licensed Nano Icom 1.5.0 installed, which most of the time shows similar problems when connecting to another site with an IC-7100. However the Nano Icom sometimes works better. Perhaps the two apps interfere? I have had situations where after using the Icom and the Elecraft application one after another a few times none of them works and the only remedy is to shut the phone down (Power off/Restarting). My old HTC One M8 with Android 6.0 experienced the same problems.

My problems seems similar to what is mentioned in however I do not get the message APP TRIAL PERIOD HAS EXPIRED and the licence indicator on 'the connect screen' is most often green Lic.ID bef5 as it should be.

Sometimes the Lic.ID bef5 is red on one or both Nano Elecraft and Icom and then often either of them ends with 'Stopped unexpectly'. After that restarting the app usually results in a green Lic.ID bef5 and the app can connect but still only works with the flaws mentioned above. After the 'Stopped unexpectly' I have sent many error reports including system data.

This looks like software errors and I would like to have my licensed Nano apps working.
