Has anyone got any advice on cheap Android smart phones (£50 or less) that work well with the eChook Nano and app when installed in a Greenpower kit car? It doesn't need to be a large screen (4-5" will do) and the smaller we can get away with the better given limited space and mounting options. I'm guessing it needs GPS for the lap timer (not always a given on cheap phones) and Bluetooth. 4G seems preferable for live data but not important just now. I've seen phones such as the Ulefone Note 8 on Amazon with Android 10 Go Edition - are there any likely problems using the more basic version of the Android OS that you find in cheaper phones?
Can't help with specific phones, but there shouldn't be any issues running the app on Go edition. It should run happily with android 5 onwards, although with smaller phones some of the data does get pushed off the screen currently.
A popular option with teams seems to be using an old discarded phone - they tend to be up to the task so long as the battery is ok still.
Good morning DGS. The Banchory Greenpower team use two old discarded phones: - Motorola Moto G, Android 5.1 (discarded by family member) - Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo, Android 6.0.1 (purchased used on eBay) Both work fine with the eChook app. Welcome to the forum and good luck at Goodwood. Sadly we have had to withdraw from Goodwood as our local education authority is not allowing any extra curricular activities at present . Looking forward to next year.
