    same symptoms here, update would go on forever. In an act of desperation I even restarted the whole process from scratch (unpaired, reinstalled, etc.). Device is found, but again it fails on the update and wont even find the Device afterwards. Very disappointing: no error messages or anything what might give any sort of hint what goes wrong. Also disappointing to see that others have the same issue and do not seem to receive any assistance.

    Same issue here, but a reinstall seems to have solved it.


    However, I was on the unresponsive update screen for longer than was UI-wise comfortable...

    stuck on checking for updates (posted a duplicate support message with all the details.)

    I was able to update my device firmware to v2.5.1631 this morning!  

    Firmware version has more waypoints available - at least 42 on one of my routes loaded successfully.  very pleased with that addition.

    the update on 7/16/2019 required the following (none of this worked last week, but did today):

    1) open the app

    2) pair with device

    3) click the "update" on the app (it was 100% required before I could start a journey)

    4) the device appeared to hang on downloading the update

    4a) the app lost connection to the device

    5) unpair the app from the device in the app Settings

    6) in the app:  setup a new device (this time the app found a Beeline <nnnndevice>, in update mode)

    7) pairing was quick, device and app displayed downloading update

    8) the app lost connection to the device again, but it automatically prompted me to reconnect to the device

    9) seems to be working now


    All in all, there were some odd steps to reconnect/re-pair to the device, but the total time from step 1 to step 9 was less than 5 minutes.

    Good luck to all!
