Why do I get "EkosLive is Down" message when connecting to StellarMate?

Usually this message is displayed when there is a communication error between your phone/tablet and StellarMate. Try to check the following steps:

  1. If you have Mobile Data enabled on your phone, then disable it as this might interfer with your connection to StellarMate Hotspot.
  2. Double check you are fully connected to the hotspot, sometimes Android/iOS do not fully connect, check network settings for any warnings. If possible, click Keep This Connection.
  3. Check if you can reach StellarMate WiFi using your tablet browser. Open the browser and then go to http://10.250.25.1 You should see StellarMate Dashboard if all connection is OK.
  4. If you changed your username, then this automatically invalidates your license and you need to be re-issued a new license. Please contact support to request this. After a new license is generated for you, uninstall the App completely and then reinstall it so that the new license is downloaded.
  5. If you cannot connect with StellarMate WiFi at all, double check the power. It must be supplied 5v@3A.
  6. If no response at all after reboot (i.e. not hotspot created), try to connect HDMI cable to the mini-HDMI port closest to the USB-C power port and connect it to an external monitor. Do you see any messages? Please send a screenshot to support.
  7. If all above fails, you can try re-flashing StellarMate OS image unto the SD card (or a new SD card).

The App fails to detect StellarMate after clicking RESCAN?

Please check the following suggestions: Ensure that you can see stellarmate HotSpot network name in the list of networks detected…

Please check the following suggestions:

  1. Ensure that you can see stellarmate HotSpot network name in the list of networks detected by your tablet. If the stellarmate network is not listed, then check StellarMate power. If power is OK (steady Red Led with occasional Green flashes) then check and make sure the SD card at the bottom of the unit is plugged in securely. If SD card OK, use the HDMI cable to connect the unit to a nearby monitor/TV and check for any error messages. Take a photo of the error and open a support ticket in order for our technical support to help you further.
  2. Ensure Tablet must be connected to the HotSpot (default password is stellar@mate)
  3. Ensure that StellarMate power is sourced from a 5v @ 3A steady power source. Anything less than 3A would make it unstable.
  4. If you have equipment connected to the USB3 ports of StellarMate, try to unplug them and restart StellarMate as USB3 might sometimes causes interferance with 2.4Ghz wireless networks

While a view to the celestial pole is desirable, it's not strictly necessary. The App would work almost anywhere in the sky, prefereably closer to the meridian.
