Note that the easyTRX3-Manager app does not keep alive in background.
It is just used for programming and diagnose of the easyTRX3.
If you close app, press Home-button or lock your phone, the app disconnects from easyTRX3.
But that does not mean that you don´t get AIS-/GPS data.
The app is not required for this.

Use IP 192.168.16.254 and Port 8080 within that app.
