That's. Good. Personally for the AA WiFi I use the WiFi launcher and until now works perfectly. But I had to install the beta version from HUR to work. Since your android is older I don't know if will support it. Maybe someone have other ideas.
I followed the method 1 mentioned above, I didn't use the part " Using the WiFi&BT button Using the WiFi&BT button". Try to fpllow the guide and should work if doesn't work write the problem here.Wifi Mode Setup - Starting with HUR 5.2
Method 1 (prefered)
Only available if phone runs Android 9 or higher
- Install Wifi Launcher for HUR on the phone ( https://labs.xda-developers.com/store/app/com.borconi.emil.wifilauncherforhur thanks to @gvillo89 for rewriting the app)
- Open the app and select the car's BT adaptor from the list (make sure phone is NOT connected to the car's BT, but BT is enabled!)
- For Android 10 and above make sure you set location permissions to ALWAYS, otherwise it won't work
Using the WiFi&BT button
- Enable Listening mode in HUR -> Settings -> Connectivity
- Restart HUR
- If phone is already connected to the car's BT disconnect and reconnect
- This won't work on all units. It needs to know the phones BT address (you can set it up in HUR -> Settings -> Connectivity).
- Phone setup is identical as above, but it becomes mandatory to give WiFi Launcher access to notifications!
- When you press the button on the car screen it will turn on the hotspot and send a message over BT to the WiFi Launcher app which will try to initiate the connection
Potential problems & solutions:
- HUR can't turn on WiFi:
- you can try to use other ways to turn on the hotspot, for example manually or using tools with root access
- HUR can't automatically configure the hotspot:
-This will happen if the unit running is based on Android 8 and above. Make sure you manually set the hotspot name to: HUR and the password to: AndroidAutoConnect
- Phone connects but has no internet access:
- Each phone is different, but usually there is some setting under the phones WiFi settings which suggest to allow mobile data while connects to WiFi. In some cases you have to forget the HUR network on the phone, then when you re-connect to it make sure you don't tap the notification which says the WiFi has no network. Hard to give exact advice because of so many different implementation on phone side.
Available on all phones including those running Oreo and below
- Open Android Auto
- go to settings, scroll down and tap the "version" 10 times you will become a developer
- Now from the 3 dotted top corner menu select, "Start headunit server"
- Exit Android Auto
- Create a Wifi hotspot
- Connect to the phone's hotspot
- Open HUR (Headunit Reloaded)
- Press the Wifi button.
To automate starting of HUR when connected to a Wifi network you can use your preferred automation app, for example macrodoid or tasker or anything else, using intents. The intent needs to be configured like this:
- Action: "gb.xxy.hr.WIFI_START"
- Packaged: gb.xxy.hr
- Type: Broadcast
- Receiver Class: gb.xxy.hr.WifiReceiver
See below example screenshots for macrodroid and tasker.
From my experience you should connect the tablet to the car Bluetooth. Afterwards all the sound should go through the speakerstrying to connect fire hd 10 plus to my van im doing this following but phone calls still coming through phone speaker instead of van speaker , spotify etc comes through the speakers
1) Open Android Auto
2) Now from the 3 dotted top corner menu select, "Start headunit server"
3) Exit Android Auto
3) Create a Wifi hotspot
1) Connect to the phone's hotspot
2) Open HUR (Headunit Reloaded)
3) Press the Wifi button.
do i connect my phone or tablet to my vans bluetooth?
Same problem after 2 minutes of navigations unti gps seem stop sending position data to phone
I have HUR installed on my headunit (without SIM card and without any interent connection) and it works without any problem. But Android Auto is running on my phone, not on HUR. I also tried enabling Airplane Mode on my phone, and everything was working normally without any problem. The problem is most probably somewhere else.Hello,
I tested the app and have one issue.
I use a phone inside my car on Android 8.1 with HUR without SIM. As soon as I am at home and the phone is connected to my home's WIFI, I can connect with my daily phone to HUR.
As soon as I go outside and HUR does not have internet, HUR does not open the WIFI hotspot.
Can please someone explain me why HUR needs internet on the device it is istalled to? I'm just testing right now. I don't see a reason why I should get a SIM card for the device with HUR.
I use a generic Chinese headunit. My phone would connect to the headunit via Bluetooth upon turning on the system. It then triggered the Wi-Fi Launcher app. I then manually launched HUR in the headunit and within seconds, AA would launch. Only thing is my phone was running Oxygen OS 11. I am not not sure if this will work with Oxygen OS 12. Also I no longer have the phone to test OOS 12.
what is your headunit spec? It might be too low if it is 1G RAM.I have the paid app. When I attempt to launch the self mode on the heat unit it just goes to black briefly and then returns to the HUR menu icons. This is on a imars head unit running Android 8.
Interestingly the same sort of action happens when I try to open AA. Any help would be appreciated.
Just with regards to the specs, I have it running on a head unit with 512 MB RAM on Android 4.3 without any big issues. So it really doesn't need a lot
For Android 8.1 go(which is android 6), ram use more than 1 G if run HUR in self mode with Google map.
Isn't that exactly what you just joined up to do?
You didn't join to ask a question. You could have started with telling us what device and Android version you are trying to connect with/to, and perhaps someone could help you constructively.
