    On software side the only thing that could slow a long running device is the amount of data it remembers although we delete weather mixer and services data that are older than 1 year. On the other hand we don't delete Watering History data, this might have an impact although we have old running devices that didn't slow down with large watering history.

    The NOAA error is related to NOAA getting a new infrastructure, we have a better retry/retrieve mechanism on current beta version that should perform better.

    A Factory Defaults would wipe the Watering History data and might solve these issues (Watering History can be exported from mobile apps to a spreadsheet).

    Thank you for the response.  The watering history might also explain why it can take forever to initially load on my phone...? Many times can take a minute or 2 before it finishes loading. I did come across this issue: https://support.rainmachine.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360026343253-RainMachine-HD-hanging-periodically

    There's some overlap of symptoms.  Right now I'm trying the "Keep my display on but dim..." approach.  See if that makes any difference.  About a year ago I got a new router and merged the 2.4GHz and 5GHz on the same network.  Maybe that's related?
