#12837 Track returns to „Caution“ following restart.

This is minor and seems completely random as to when it happens. Occassionally, when restarting a race from caution, the race restarts but is then quickly put under caution again automatically. This is not a "false start" issue as I've experienced with just me as a driver and a single ghost on the track. I will wait for "Go!", both cars will proceed, and then stop a split second afterwards as caution has returned.

This does not happen every time, but I do experience it 2-3 times during a 50 lap race.

Not sure if it is something I'm doing or if it is a random bug you should be aware of.

This is running Smart Race 2.1.0 with Firmware 5337. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S5A on Android 7.0.

Hey Kevin,

sounds strange. I would assume that the CU receives the "start" signal twice (which would result in the exact behavior you described). How **exactly** do you resume the race after "caution"?

Hi Marc,

I am doing it through the App but selecting "Start" on the screen. I guess it is conceivable that the phone picks up a "double tap" and pauses the race immediately after restarting. I'll do some testing by doing one full race using just the App, and a second just using the Control Unit. I'll report back my findings to see if the issue is the same in both methods or only when using the phone.

So it may just be that my phone is registering my touch as a "double tap" on some instances. Using the Control Unit did not get any of the immediate caution following a restart.

Ok, thanks for reporting back to me. I'm afraid I can't do anything about it :-/

Thanks Marc. I didn't expect a fix after I reported the update. :)
