It is currently possible in paris to rent electric scooters from Coup company, which originated in Germany.
But the app refuses to run on FP2, claiming that it needs “bluetooth peripheral mode”.
I can use around 10 different rental systems without issue, so that’s very badly done from their side !!
I wonder what the source of this incompatibility is ?
- Hardware not able to do device mode
- Firmware not able (radio update needed)
- Software not able (OS update could help ?)
- Ability incorrectly undected (the phone can do it, but the app thinks not)
Anyone having a clue about it ?
- I tried an app called “BLE Tool”, and it seems to enter server and client mode without issue. Or is it a different thing ?
- Play store claims that the app is not compatible. I grabbed the APK and installed manually, but then the app is also stating that it cannot be used - and suggesting to buy a S. Galaxy !!
