[CA11] iPad Master/Slave
We have an eS128 MFD on our Beneteau 473 at the chart table. While we are at sea we use an IPad on each helm (Port and Starboard) connected to the eS128. The MFD is on LIghthouse 3 3.10.42

One IPad works fine. I have full control over the MFD. If I connect the second IPad the first one connected becomes the “Master” (full control of the MFD) and the second one a slave (display only with no control). This is understandable as you don’t want two people pushing buttons on different helms at the same time.

The problem is, the units swap as to which one is master and slave by what seems there own accord!

One minute I’m setting up to follow a route and the next the IPad won’t send keystrokes to the MFD and I have to change helms.

The Port IPad does have less WiFi reception from the eS128, (2 out of three bars) but the app always seems responsive. It’s the latest version of the app and IOS.

Is there anyway to “lock” and IPad so it has the “master” role?
Or is two IPads pushing the friendship :)
