This is EasyVFR3 running on a brand new Lenovo M8 on Android 13. (It turns out that Lenovo forgot to mention this is 32-bit Android so I can't use EasyVFR4 as planned).

When I first installed it and turned it on it seemed to be okay on a quick test with a SkyEcho 2, but a couple of weeks later I came to use it and I'm getting the following error message on loading..

"Error (Marmalade v9.0.0 [20190902161311q]

ERROR!!! Unable To determine AIRACCYCLEDID FOR 20231211, indication for MEMORYCORRUPTION" [CONTINUE|STOP].

It doesn't matter which button I hit, I get this next:

"ERROR!!! Unable To determine AIRACCYCLEDID FOR 20231211, indication for MEMORYCORRUPTION" [OK].

It goes through this twice and then the thing loads but can't determine my location. I checked, the GPS is working and it's accessing Android location services. This may be a clue as to what the message means.

So... I uninstalled and reinstalled the App. No change. Then I did a factory reset on the tablet and installed the App again. No difference. And I thought it might be server problem, but it's been doing this for over a week now. It's not a clash with other Apps, as I have installed none.

Any idea what's going on here? I preferred EasyVFR's monthly licensing as I don't fly often, and I have a soft spot for EasyVFR, but this is pushing me away big time. However, I'm happy to dig into the code if that's possible.

Hi Frank

 

With the introduction of AIRAC cycle 202312 we discovered that EasyVFR3 version 3.97.43 cannot handle AIRAC cycles from 202312 onwards because the AIRAC calendar programmed at the time for Canada and Australia does not go beyond 202311. 
 
This causes all 3.97.43 versions of EasyVFR and all versions of EasyVFR Basic UK and NL  to give marmalade error messages when they are started.
 
We managed to develop fixed versions for EasyVFR 3, EasyVFR 3 Basic UK and EasyVFR 3 Basic NL versions running on Android.
 
Unfortunately these fixes cannot be distributed using google Playstore or Apple Appstore because EasyVFR3 does not comply to their minimum requirements anymore. Since a number of years our successor product EasyVFR 4 is available (see www.easyvfr4.aero) and the most logical advise would be to start using this version since your current license is valid for that version too. A good place to start for more information about EasyVFR 4 is   https://support.easyvfr4.aero/help/download-install-and-activate-easyvfr-4
 
If it is required to keep using EasyVFR 3 then the mentioned fixed versions are available. Use the links listed below on your Android device and allow your Android device to install apps from external sources when asked. 
 
For android the following links are available :
 
 
For EasyVFR 3 Basic UK 
 
For EasyVFR 3 Basic NL 
 
if you do that on your Android device, you should be able to install it, and everything should work again.

Hi Dave,

It's good to know what the problem is and that there's a fixed version, so thanks for that.

I'm a little confused about your advice to use version 4. I thought this was 64-bit Android only? As I said I have a Lenovo Tab M8 (4th Gen) with Android 13 on a MediaTek Helio A22 Processor? Technically it's a MT8166B - 4 ARM Cortex-A53s. I know these can be implemented in both the Armv8-A and Armv7-A executions states, and as I said in the original post Lenovo seem to have opted tor v7-A for some crazy reason. This is a brand new latest generation tablet - what are they thinking? That said, most Android Apps (including SkyDemon) work in 32-bit but I thought EasyVFR 4 was one of the few things using 64-bit only?

So I'm really happy that you think it wouldn't work, but it won't install from the Play Store for me as it doesn't even show up at all due to it being flagged as 64-bit. So how do I get it? Is there an APK I can download?

Thanks, Frank.

BTW, I installed the APK from the link and it looks a lot happier, so I'm winning thanks to you 🙂 I'm still deciding whether to just send the Lenovo M8 back though. It's got a nice feel to it and the battery lasts a long time so in many ways I do like it.

High Dave

having the same problems with the AIRAC cycle 202312 I installed the Android version 3.97.44 for testing and it worked.

Unfortunately I am using EasVFR3 generaly on my Windows PC so I wonder if it is possible to get a fix for this system too.

Kindly regards

Hi Klaus, 

There is also a fix available for windows, the steps to follow are : 

  1.  Download   https://members.pocketfms.com/WebProgramDownloads/EasyVFR/EasyVFR_3.97.44Fix.zip  
  2. Unzip this downloaded zip and copy the 5 extracted files to you existing EasyVFR3 installation, most probably c:\program files(x86)\EasyVFR
  3. Start EasyVFR the normal way. The version number listed should be 3.97.44
 
kind regards,
rob

Hi Erich, 

 

Unfortunately not. We are still working on trying to create a fix, but it's not easy, and even then is doubtful if Apple will accept a new version of EasyVFR 3 because it doesn't comply to a number of new rules Apple laid out over the last years. But we keep trrying the upcoming weeks , I estimate changes for success at 50% at the moment, sorry.

Beware - I thought I was fixed and then it turned out that EasyVFR3 could not understand the location packets returned by Android 13. It manifests by EasyVFR3 thinking it's in the Gulf of Guinea (Null Island).

I've yet to get a fix for this, and have offered to update the source code myself, but I'm on the point of giving up with it.

Hi Frank

I think that Tim has been communicating with you as well. I am not an Android expert as I use an iPad Mini 5 & iPhone 10 for EasvyVFR, but I know that some Android manufacturers are supplying 64 bit hardware with 32 bit operating systems which I think is totally unacceptable.

We do have an article about devices which we know are good:

https://support.easyvfr4.aero/help/compatible-devices-and-system-requirements

 

Unfortunately, EasyVFR 4 does require a 64-bit OS to run due to the background software behind the product which may differ from other software.

My recommendation would be to get the most most powerful device that your pocket can afford. As time goes on, software will become even hungrier for resources and processing power. If you can return your tablet and get a better replacement that will be your best bet.
