Echo Brake Controller (OneControl App)

Desparately need help with my brake controller. Going camping next weekend and can't get my bluetooth brake controller app to work.

We have the 'Curt Echo Wireless Brake Controller - 7-Way Plug Mount w/ Bluetooth App'. Went to move the camper around today and set up the app and see Echo now works through the 'OneControl' app. Download that and get to a page on 'Location Permissions' and it will go no further. Any insight to get past this page? I cannot reach Lippert (owns the OneControl app i believe) for tech support on the weekend so i'll try on Monday, but concerned with the ability to get through to them as well - had issues in the past....

Also, i did see a note that the new app may have system requirements of IOS9 or above - we have IOS 17.4.1 as the updated operating system and our phones are Iphone SE's (which i believe is compatible to an iPhone 8?).

I'm not a tech guy - i do what i need to do to get by - so please keep the advice on the 'user friendly' side. Appreciate any help - currently very frustrated, and concerned.

Since you admit to not being a tech guy, why didn't you just install a regular wired brake controller? Would be a lot simpler and reliable.

I have a Toyota Highlander - it is a very tight dashboard with minimal room to have a hard wired brake controller under the steering wheel or in the middle of the dashboard, thus the move to a bluetooth connection. I'm not a tech expert but i can download and use an app....

In addition, i've had no problems with the previous app (Curt Echo) and successfully used the controller for the past 4 years. They changed to OneControl which will not allow me to connect with the new app....

which brings me to my questions and request for any insight/support to work through the connection issue.....

Update: the issue was with my cell phone. Needed to adjust the font/page size to see the ‘accept’ icon at the bottom of the page. Little things..
