Hi, I'm wondering if this fixes the issue that Waze will reset (losing all account information) if you don't shut down the app before turning off the car's engine.

Hi all,

How feasible would be to use a generic USB dongle with Carplay for Android?

They operate through a USB connection and an Android app. What i haven't manage to find is a dongle with an app for a previous version of android than 4.0.

Am i beeing naive thinking that the app itself is the bigest chalenge, or is there a impossibility through the USB connection?

Thank you all for all the work putted in to this old platform.

For this, you need to close it using intent. You can do it with tasker or other app. Just send intent when Android is going to shutdown.
Code:
In Tasker:
Send intent:
Action: Eliran_Close_Intent
Cat: Default
Target: Broadcast Receiver

App is the biggest challenge. Technically you don't need a dongle. There is open source project, which can convert SCT to Android Auto unit without any extra hardware.

The biggest question is how to port it to old Android version we have.

Thanks, so for the context should I use Event-->System-->Device Shutdown?

Thanks. I assume Tasker will always launch in the background and be active when the system boots up?

Does anybody know how I can enter recovery mode? My SCT displays Volvo logo and don't skip this step. If I wait enough time it resets again and again. Before this situation I suddenly stops my engine during factory reset process. After that it don't open again. Volvo service offers me replace all unit. I know this problem solved with new firmware installation. I tried rubbing solution for enter recovery mode but it did not work. Can anybody help me?
