Default Simrad Go Free connection problem

I can't get my NSS7 Gen 1 unit to communicate with my tablet. I get the Icon on my phone for the unit but it will not connect to it. Any suggestions of what the issue might be? I am pretty sure it is running the 3.0 software but am going to download it Friday to make sure that isn't the issue.

I have had this problem (can see the plotter icon but it never makes the connection) and finally found out it was caused by interference from my long distance WIFI transceiver which has a much more powerful output than normal. When I turned that off, problem gone.

So perhaps you have something onboard that is causing interference? LED bulbs, motors, nearby radio or other electrical or electronic device. Try turning other things off.
