SOME TIPS:
TOGGLE SCREEN NORMAL/FULL:
- Double Click on the station information toggle fullscreen on/off.

NORMAL SCREEN:
- Long press on the station information popup the "ADD Station" dialog window if the station is not in your station list. If it's already in your list, it will focus the relative station button.
- Long press on a station button bring up the "EDIT Station" dialog window
- Single press on screen arrows <> does a small frequency step fwd/back
- Long Press on screen arrows does a quick search fwd/back

FULLSCREEN MODE:
- A Single press of the arrows <> switch to next/previous station
-A Long press on station information(center of the screen) bring up the "EDIT Station" dialog window.
- In interface settings you can remove the big frequency in background if a logo is available.
- In settings you can hide status bar, activate the clock and a speed gauge

STEERING WHEELS CONTROLS:
- The steering wheels commands act exactly in the same way as the fullscreen arrows, they just need to be setup in the correct way in carsettings application.

FAVORITE LIST:
- The FAV list is the result of merging FM and AM favorites, so you can have both frequencies in the same list.
- FAV stations can be edited within the fav list but cannot be added. You need to be on fm or am list to add a station and set it to favs.
- Deleting the FAV list will just remove the fav flag from the fm/am stations but will not delete them.
- Deleting AM/FM list it will delete the FAV list too.

LOGOS:
- you can use your own station logos, you just need to know where you have them stored and browse for them when editing a station.
- To get the stations Logos from the app you have to set the nationality of the logos in the interface menu, download and extract them.
Once they are extracted you have to edit each saved station to assign the logo image to it.
- The automatic assignment of the Logos is based on the RDS id of the radio stations (pi code) and the search of the logo by RDS name.
The first method (by id) is faster and more precise but it needs that the name of the logo contain the picode of the station and for this purpose i renamed them for some of the available countries. Of course i cannot make them all and the functionality of this method depend of the availability of correctly named logo images for your country.
The second method (by name) is less accurate and it work comparing the RDS name with all available logos. If the rsult of the comparison is 100% correct the logo is autoamatically assigned. If the result are more then one logo, a dialog window popup asking you to choose it.

AF (Alternative Frequencies) handling: (Doubleclick to switch between stored AF)
AF service allows the radio tuner to tune in to an alternative frequency when the signal becomes too weak. The minimum level signal can be set in factory settings (Auto Search Stop) and has been found
that around 30 db is the best choice.
To improve even more this service I added an automatic storing of the alternative frequencies so that every time a new frequency is received, it's added in a list.
After an autoscan some radio stations can be found on different frequencies, NavRadio+ have an option (in Settings/radio) to automatically merge the frequencies in just one button populating the AF list
The frequencies available in this list can be selected using the station editor or switched one by one DOUBLECLICKING on the station button.

NOTES:
I'm the only developer of the app and I work on it every single day for some hours a day.
I try my best to develope the app at best of my possibilities and I wish at evey release that it is bug and crash free.
This is very hard to achieve, even if I have some very good friends that help me testing it.
I'm really thankful to them for their help and support.

Thank everybody who beleive in my work and thanks for understanding. :)

1. Live-RDS does not work in my country. What it catches during tuning stays on the display and does not change. In Poland, in live RDS, e.g. the channel name, frequency, time, artist name of the song, its title are displayed ...
2. I noticed that the additional RDS info displayed on one channel is how I switch to a channel that does not send such information, the information from the previous channel remains
3. The AGAMA launcher does not read information from your application, the channel logo also does not display.
4. Screen savers that can display information and covers from other programs (spotify, black player ...) from your application do not display
5. In the settings, the equalizer button does not take us to its settings ...
6. 6. As you can see in the picture, the numbers of the first two channels are too close to the left edge and if someone like me has a screen of this type, he is not able to read their number from the driver's position. In vertical channel list mode this problem does not occur.
PS
AF works fine.


Thanks and I hope that I helped a little and that you will fix this RDS - for me it is one of the most important functions of the radio and without it, despite its fantastic appearance, it is of little use.
Fingers crossed

My HU: PX5, MTCE, Android 9.0 (hal9k ROM), 1024x600



edit:
I noticed today's update and made a clean installation
The equalizer is already starting
When it comes to RDS, I don't know if you have corrected something, but there is a positive change (maybe I didn't notice it yesterday). With manual scanning, RDS works very well until I save the radio channel, then the first RDS information is saved in the "channel name" field and it displays permanently and Live-RDS does not work (displays permanently saved information) . Video from the recording here: https://youtu.be/hofRdaaSG2A

Maybe you could enter an option in which you could select whether you want the application to save the channel name in its memory or not to save it. Then live-RDS would work for me if I checked that there would be no automatic saving of the channel name ... Or maybe you have a better idea? Just like in your older application that the name is saved and still RDS still displays the changing information?

PS
I don't know how in the latest version, but in the previous one you couldn't choose your own wallpaper or set your own background color (1.2)

Regards

Tnx for reporting:)

1. I added an option in Radio settings to enable LiveRDS mode (will be there in version 1.22)
2. I fixed it in version 1.21
3. I have to look at it but it's not my priority
4. I have to look at this one too but i guess it's hardcoded in the hal9k screensaver
5. I fixed it in version 1.21
6. I'll try to add some paddings to grid view

Background custom image and colors works ok here...

Hmm, but i can't choose own custom image or change solid color.
When I click on my own image nothing happens, there is no option to choose such image. Also, I can't change the solid color (white is the default), no such option ...
Unless you do it somehow differently

First of all, awesome radio app. Great work!

Found one bug: If you try save channel/ frequency for example memory position 5 and you only have three saved stations, GUI will crash but radio remains open in the background.

And one request - Can you add outside temperature (from the can-bus) to the full screen mode, please?

Otherwise your app seems to work very well in my unit, MTCE_PX30_MX.
Testing will continue...

Ok, for custom images please use a different file browser than the gallery and it should work. (i'll fix it anyway)
There is nothing special to do to select the color, just choose it with the circular slider, hit ok and go back to main view.
Which android version are you running?

The problem is that when you choose your own image option, the application goes to normal operation, the file browser does not open. The same with a solid color, no slider appears ... But that's not a problem the wallpapers embedded in the app are great, and now you have more important things to improve;)
I'm using Android 9.0 Hal9k
edit:
In terms of non-appearing information and logos of radio channels, on launcher or sreen saver, it seems to me that it is enough for such notifications to appear in the way shown in the picture. At least I have this information about the screensaver from hal9k

For this week I'd like to kill all the bugs so I can release a final working version for MTC devices.
Tonight I released a 1.22 version with all the mentioned fixes plus a major fix to audiofocus that was causing music and radio to play togheter.

Anyway it has been reported me that the app is working fine on all PX series and I'm very happy about it.
Maybe a couple more of days and I can make an official public release :good: :laugh:

Live-RDS works perfectly. Thank you so much for that!

I put two videos with small errors.
1. What I wrote about the impossibility of setting your own background image and a solid color.
https://youtu.be/8UhCqoH7Htw

2. Often after firing your application it starts to play, but it crashes me "to the desktop" and I get the message that: the application is not responding. If I put the application on the autostart either it is the same message or the radio starts without sound

Head unit MTCE_PX30_MX.

Updated today to version 1.22...
After that my steering wheel buttons does not work as before. "Channel up" and "channel down" buttons just skipping between two stations. Buttons acts like "previous" channel?
Also if I try put some codes to "KEY" menu, everything works, but when I get back to GUI, radio app crashes. And it crash a lot, like AdekP wrote before. And I can not close radio anymore, only thing which seems to helps is uninstall app or clear app's memory under "app properties".

There were any of these issues with previous version 1.21, is it possible to roll back to this version? Just to check does it behave different?

Keys menu is for Allwinner units, I'll disable it in next builds for MTC devices.
Steering wheels buttons are working fine on my unit, be sure you set it up like this:

Ok, thanks. I uninstall the app and then made a new install. Now everything is fine again, even seek up / seek down works. Maybe problem was "keys" menu and something were messed up when I try this :)

Sorry id don't understand from that picture where the notification bar show that letter..

I found what was causing you to not show the color chooser menu and the wallpaper. It was the polish translation ;)
Will be fixed in next version.:good:

    After spending another hour fiddling with Hal9k settings, I decided not to use mod popups for radio, but enable yours instead, as you do in your video. This appears to fix the problem. Agama works good now. Regarding NavRadio popups, the only thing to wish is to have more flexible positioning of popup box on the screen. Or to make Bottom position a bit upper (since it lays directly on the screen bottom, edge to edge, not looking nice).
    Ok then...
    Notifications will need anyway some rewriting because of android 11 and 12.
    I'll see what I can do.

    Possible fix for audio lost on T3L and TS18 models

    I think 0.2.42? Maybe i remember it wrong tho. I will recheck tomorrow.
    But it did told me that it could not validate the licence and another pop up window with later and retry appeared.
    That happened after 7 days i think with no internet and every day usage.
    Possibilities are 2:
    1.You have an old version of the app
    2.you lost the app saved data.

    Once the license is verified it's now stored to avoid the continuous asking for it.

    Hi @KoTiX2
    Unfortunately, this didn't solve the problem, the GPS unavailable message still appears
    Maybe Navradio+ should constantly check GPS availability as navigation applications do

    Steps to reproduce the issue:
    1. turn off GPS
    2. turn on Navradio+
    3. you will see a message
    4. turn on GPS
    5. Navradio+ does not show GPS speed

    Expected behavior:
    Navradio+ shows the GPS speed even if the GPS service is enabled after Navradio+ is started
    Ok the fix will come in next release ;)
    2
    Version 2.50 will be out tomorrow:

    Added Bulgarian language
    Added pause function from steering wheel controls
    Fixed implicit intent errors
    Fixed small frequency in grid view

    Please report me if anybody have problems with steering wheels controls. ;)

    SOME TIPS:
    TOGGLE SCREEN NORMAL/FULL:
    - Double Click on the station information toggle fullscreen on/off.

    NORMAL SCREEN:
    - Long press on the station information popup the "ADD Station" dialog window if the station is not in your station list. If it's already in your list, it will focus the relative station button.
    - Long press on a station button bring up the "EDIT Station" dialog window
    - Single press on screen arrows <> does a small frequency step fwd/back
    - Long Press on screen arrows does a quick search fwd/back

    FULLSCREEN MODE:
    - A Single press of the arrows <> switch to next/previous station
    -A Long press on station information(center of the screen) bring up the "EDIT Station" dialog window.
    - In interface settings you can remove the big frequency in background if a logo is available.
    - In settings you can hide status bar, activate the clock and a speed gauge

    STEERING WHEELS CONTROLS:
    - The steering wheels commands act exactly in the same way as the fullscreen arrows, they just need to be setup in the correct way in carsettings application.

    FAVORITE LIST:
    - The FAV list is the result of merging FM and AM favorites, so you can have both frequencies in the same list.
    - FAV stations can be edited within the fav list but cannot be added. You need to be on fm or am list to add a station and set it to favs.
    - Deleting the FAV list will just remove the fav flag from the fm/am stations but will not delete them.
    - Deleting AM/FM list it will delete the FAV list too.

    LOGOS:
    - you can use your own station logos, you just need to know where you have them stored and browse for them when editing a station.
    - To get the stations Logos from the app you have to set the nationality of the logos in the interface menu, download and extract them.
    Once they are extracted you have to edit each saved station to assign the logo image to it.
    - The automatic assignment of the Logos is based on the RDS id of the radio stations (pi code) and the search of the logo by RDS name.
    The first method (by id) is faster and more precise but it needs that the name of the logo contain the picode of the station and for this purpose i renamed them for some of the available countries. Of course i cannot make them all and the functionality of this method depend of the availability of correctly named logo images for your country.
    The second method (by name) is less accurate and it work comparing the RDS name with all available logos. If the rsult of the comparison is 100% correct the logo is autoamatically assigned. If the result are more then one logo, a dialog window popup asking you to choose it.

    AF (Alternative Frequencies) handling: (Doubleclick to switch between stored AF)
    AF service allows the radio tuner to tune in to an alternative frequency when the signal becomes too weak. The minimum level signal can be set in factory settings (Auto Search Stop) and has been found
    that around 30 db is the best choice.
    To improve even more this service I added an automatic storing of the alternative frequencies so that every time a new frequency is received, it's added in a list.
    After an autoscan some radio stations can be found on different frequencies, NavRadio+ have an option (in Settings/radio) to automatically merge the frequencies in just one button populating the AF list
    The frequencies available in this list can be selected using the station editor or switched one by one DOUBLECLICKING on the station button.

    NOTES:
    I'm the only developer of the app and I work on it every single day for some hours a day.
    I try my best to develope the app at best of my possibilities and I wish at evey release that it is bug and crash free.
    This is very hard to achieve, even if I have some very good friends that help me testing it.
    I'm really thankful to them for their help and support.

    Thank everybody who beleive in my work and thanks for understanding. :)

    x7TCQF9.png


    Then there some more countries with automatic logos:
    Belgium, Czech rep., France (tnx @Timpuli), Hungary, Croatia
    Italian logos are still worked out and I'm waiting for friends to prepare the German and Spanish logos (they are really too many).
    I'm fixing again Agama metadata for no RDS users and liveRDS.
    Other minor bugs are fixed too.
    Next week i'll concentrate on after sleep resuming and AF alternative frequencies.

    It's a demostration of the new new drag & drop and swipe features of NavRadio+, now you can
    - Easily Change order of the memorized stations.
    - Delete a station with swipe gesture.
    - Add an Alternative Frequency to a station by dragging.

    Then please go ahead and write such app for yourself, if you think that it's so easy and cheap to do.

    There's nothing wrong with asking some money for a good software. Things don't have to be for free and I'm pretty sure that @KoTiX2 so far put more hours of work into this project than it payd back, if you look at it at a monitary basis. There surely also is a lot of enthusiasm in this project.
