The Roland connectivity is flaky at the best of times (constantly need to turn off my phone's bluetooth, turn it back on, reopen the app) but still may be good to have a couple rigs going.
It has not been my experience at all. You may want to look at your phone. Connectivity has been rock solid on my iPhone 5s and 8.
Connectivity to iPhone x and 12pro 100% solid every time.

I'm on Android, it was my experience on both the Galaxy s9+ and s10+. Definitely not switching to an iphone over this.

I recently picked up the Sony PCM a10 and that remote connection has been rock solid.

To be more accurate, reading the app reviews, it's Roland's Android app.

The R-07 was my main deck for a few years.  When I bought a set of Schoeps MK41s and got Nick to make me some Nbob Actives and Baby & Platinum Nboxes, he recommended a different deck because the R-07 tends to run hot with MK41s going through the Nbox.  He recommended the Sony A10 instead.  I've been using the A10 ever since and haven't looked back.

I'm definitely liking the Sony A10 - I've only taped a couple shows but I'm pleased with how it works. I miss Roland's dual-volume recordings - I found that useful for shows that have a mix of quiet songs and full-band songs but otherwise like the stability Sony has with the android app and the form factor.

I think the Roland still has a use for me for any shows I'm able to get soundboard access to. Though unless I'm missing something, there's no proper line-in on the Roland pretty much guaranteeing I need to carry attenuators with me.

Getting back into taping after the pandemic using the R-07 again, I see that 32gb Class 10 cards are suddenly hard to get....I see Kingston are discontinued!

Anyone have any recommendations of current cards on the market that work well?

Is 32GB still the 'limit' for these devices?

I don't recall that the last firmware (2019) changed the max capacity beyond 32,
nor do I recall seeing that class 10 was a requirement. The official card requirements are fairly lax: https://rolandus.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360003909151-R-07-What-microSD-Cards-are-Compatible-

For what it's worth, I just formatted a 64GB sandisk microsd in my R-07 - it's usable, it just formats to 32 GB (or approximately 28GB).

Just used the R-07 for the first time in a while. 2 things:
on ios, bluetooth dropped frequently
anyone know of any issues with running at low input, like 30? Wondering about adding an attenuator.

The latest firmware was published in March 2019 so you should be good.
