Huawei M3 tab 8.4" SPLIT SCREEN NOT WORKING and Crash To Desktop (CTD)

Today I bought a brand new Huawei M3 TAB 8.4" but for my surprise the SPLIT SCREEN option is not working, it is showing like smartphone layout.

PLEASE I need to activate that function. I would like to have that feature available no matter the device and let me decide If I want to use it or not.

AND PLAN button crashes the app, no matter the screen visualization mode (small, medium or large).


I can beta test an apk if you let me.

Main issue is not having split screen. Other issues are crashes to desktop when pressing some buttons or changing screen orientation.

Screen specs:

8.4 inches
Resolution 1600 x 2560
359 DPI

I think the problem is in the new higher resolutions (2K, 4K) and bigger DPI of the new devices, older devices had no problems.
Will be grateful If Naviator update its graphic engine in order to be compatible with newer devices.

Sold my old devices and bought newer ones (2016 models) but I was not aware about the incompatibility and right now I dont have a trusted device to fly.

When the app crashes, do you see an option to "report" or something similar to that? If so, please submit a crash report and include your forum user name or email address so that I can trace the crash report back to this post.

Cheers,
Mike

In my case the app closes and exit itself, so there is no crash report option.

Were these issues ever resolved?  I've tried emailing Mike at Naviator Support to see if there was a resolution, but he hasn't responded to the emails.

This looks like the most capable of today's 8 inch tablets with a 16/9 screen aspect ratio.

Mike returned my email.  Apparently these issues have not been resolved, and he does not have access to an M3 to do testing.

I am having the same issues with my M3 using Android 7.
Hope there will be a solution soon.

Re: Huawei M3 tab 8.4" SPLIT SCREEN NOT WORKING and Crash To Desktop (CTD)

Despite these reports, I went out and bought a Mediapad M3 8.4 anyway. (Perhaps I'm not so bright?)  Couldn't resist the discounted price and the amazing screen.
But, I can happily report that I now have no such issues at all.  My only problem was needing to change the tablet's "view mode" in the Display settings to Small.  With other settings, the menus were messed up and the layers didn't work at all.  Once I changed the View Mode to Small, everything works just like on my old Nexus 7. smile
I would guess that the other View modes use some kind of interpolation on the screen resolution, which messes up how Naviator wants to use display, while small uses the screen hardware cleanly.  Please try that change (which will require a device reboot) to see if things work better.
BTW, my Mediapad is still at Android 6.0 and the stock EMUI interface.
