I'm trying to run the DMK App on an iPad Mini 2 with iOS 11.2.5. I have the DMK Box connected to a NMEA 2000 backbone. When the DMK Box has power, my iPad can see the WiFi network dmkyacht and connect to it, but the DMK app itself receives no data at all. If I enter any of the settings menus in the DMK app configuration section, it reads "You are not connected to your DMK Box" even though the WiFi connection is established.

So far I have tried:
-- Restarting the iPad
-- Performing a factory reset on the DMK Box.
-- Selecting "Forget This Network" in the iPad's WiFi settings and reentering the configuration.

Additionally, I was able to confirm that the DMK is sending some packets by:
1. Disconnecting the iPad from the dmkyacht WiFi network
2. Connecting a PC to the dmkyacht WiFi network and configuring the network connection per the DMK Owner's Guide
3. Using WireShark to examine the traffic on the WiFi interface, confirming that UDP packets are flowing from to

At this point I am out of ideas for how to get the DMK app working on the iPad. Any assistance you can provide will be appreciated.

    Having same problem . DMK indicates that they need new software to run the new i pads. I have been waiting a couple of months for the fix.

    I have exactly the same issue.
    The DMK box is transmitting AIS and GPS data on the WiFi but the DMK and DMK Setup apps cannot connect from an iPhone7 nor from an iPadAir2

    I gave up trying to make the DMK work properly. Bought the Ship Modul miniplex-3
    and it worked fine all year.--------------------------------------------
