I didn't even know it was localized to other languages.

I don't know what has changed. I am afraid.

Have you registered the app?

Did you try completely powering down the device (turning it completely off) and starting it again?

What about disconnecting the ARC AIR powerbase from the power and restarting ?

Désolé mais je n'ai pas recu mon ARC AIR. Il arrive la semaine prochaine et vue que les enfants ont des vacances je ne sais pas si j'arriverai à tester (s'il fait toujour 30+° on va être au piscine ;-))... Tenez-nous au courrant (en anglais) si le problème ne se resourdre pas....

Hi jeanbart,


I've spoken to the Development team on this and the firmware version of the powerbase shouldn't have any effect on the app opening (or not in this case).


Also, your cars are actually stored in the app itself and are not saved in the powerbase or its firmware, which is why you can't find your cars after re-installing the ARC app.


As for the update itself, it helped stabilize the power performance for each lane on the powerbase.


I do hope this helps and if you're still having problems, please let me know.
