    Hallo Dsur,
    Leider nein.
    Bei mir funktionieren die Benachrichtigungen auch nicht.

    Hi Gert,

    (I keep on writing in English, maybe we have a larger audience...)

    Very strange. I mean, they promote this App with some really basic functions (other Apps can do much more, e.g. Garmin) but even this basic functionality does not work properly...Is there anyone out there in the comunity where this works?

    Hi Dsur,

    ok, some guys seems to have success to get notifications to work.

    https://support.twonav.com/hc/de/community/posts/360010482599

    I have followed the procedure described there without success.

    It say (helped by Google translate) :

    Again,

    insisting

    Notifications now work even outside of activities.

    I have :

    Phone:

    - updated my version of Android

    I lifted some app authorization refusals (sms and whatsapp) that could appear to interfere with the broadcast on the smartphone

    and then the GPS

    - reinstall the Twonavlink app

    And it works !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    well, it works for me too finally

    although notifications are allowed in link, it didn't work

    So I paired my phone and the GPS again, during this manipulation a message in link appears asking if we allow notifications

    I answered yes and since then it works

    A priori, even if we validate in link the notifications after that does not work if we did not do it during the pairing

    I did all of this, I removed the app completely; I removed the device from my bluetooth connections completely and reinstalled everything but it still does not show missed calls or SMS. Whatsapp I can see now so in priciple it seems to work. The link app gets notifications from Android but only for Whatsapp, not for missed calls or SMS.

    I do not know what to do. I opened a ticket with twonav support, let's hope they find a solution.

    Meanwhile - if anyone has another idea - you are nost welcome to post it here! Thanks to all!

    As per twonav support this is an issue in the app that depends on the device. In some devices it may work, in others not. Mine is a Samsung S20FE and it only works for Whatsapp messages.Better than nothing but not good.

    maybe one day they find a better solution...

    Good evening,

    You will remove TwoNav LINk, then reinstall it. Then go to Android settings allow notifications and it will work

    Good morning Thierry,

    Bon Jour Thierry

    No it doesn't work. May be for some but defintely not for all. And I rarely read about users where notification are working.

    Dozen of times i have uninstalled/reinstalled LINK but nothing helps.

    regards

    Gert

    Hello,

    On my SmartPhone, it didn't work. I reinstalled it to make sure I had the latest version. Then I was in Android to lift all notification permissions to LINK.

    That done I saw my notifications appear (I'm not a big fan of this thing, I prefer to go out without a link to this crazy world) but it still allowed me to come back home quickly, the day the delivery man came a day in advance, since Link I look at it in a mixed way.

    LINK's problem is not just limited to this bug! Link falls asleep although the app is "active" it remains inert you either have to go to the parameter to disconnect it and reconnect to wake it up, or go through the menus to modify the choices () which seems to wake it up.

    Even after returning from an outing, the list of activities is not systematically updated. You have to do the above operations to see this list update.

    It is in fact a gadget that has little use, a box for sale against the competition, can easily do without. Moreover LINK is quickly unusable, because saturated by a list of unusable tracks (road), because too many on a SmartPhone screen, everything goes there whether it is in the Cloud or not, suddenly we only see the roads. useful and the rest is missing (* .rte; * .wpt)!

    I just answered on the method which allowed me to obtain the notifications, Android (which is far from being the reference in terms of use and user-friendliness) was blocking notifications to TwoNav.

    Regards 

    Thierry

    Gert,

    I confirm, I just did a test, I had two SMS sent to me and it works correctly, they appear on the GPS screen.

    You have to authorize notifications to Link in Android (digital well-being menu on my Android version)

    And wake up Link like I wrote

    Regards

    Thierry
