# Steps to reproduce
#* Connect Android Device to Mac via USB connection
#* Hit the Play Button on the top left corner of Xamarin Studio
# Expected behavior
#* After the app has been deployed to the device, I get the following error: "The connection with the debugger has been lost."
# Actual behavior
#* As a Developer, I should see my debug session sustain
# Supplemental info (logs, images, videos)
#* This happens often with our BrivoPass and Brivo Mobile OnAir applications
#* Devices include: Nexus 6 and Nexus 5X (both on Android M)
# Test environment (full version information)
#* Xamarin Studio 5.10.3 (build 51)
It's hard to tell without any logcat output, but I suppose it might be a duplicate of bug #35739 - please try to upgrade to the upcoming Alpha release of Xamarin.Android to see if the issue goes away.
Thank you for your prompt response. I have switched to the Alpha channel and my first debug session is going well. I will observe and see if this performance holds on for the duration of the day.
As you suggested, moving to the Alpha Channel to download the latest Xamarin.Android has helped with the problem.
