No licenses available

“There is no E6 CONNECT license associated with this account. Please check the email address used to purchase E6 CONNECT license and try again.”

There are no more licenses available on this account because all existing licenses are bound to other sim IDs. The user must either unbind a license from another sim ID at https://beta.e6golf.com/settings/licenses or purchase additional licenses.

Failed to Activate License

“Please check your internet and try again.”

E6 Connect cannot access the server because of a connectivity issue on the user’s end. The user needs to make sure they have internet and then attempt to activate the license again.
