Can you post a picture of how it look on your unit?
What resolution is your display?
How much is the DPI settings?
You can check these values with "DPI changer" app. Find it on PlayStore.
TNX.
Here DPI print, the size it's not correct, the rest I think it's OK

Hello, today I have installed navradio, and I have canceled the stock radio from the factory menu, the operation is being great, congratulations kotix, it is a great job, even so I would like to point out some suggestions and something that I do not see very normal in the operation, the first suggestion is if in the pop-up message of the radio station, the number of the memory position you are in could also be shown .. p1, p2, p3 ...., that info would be fine, I have also Found something strange, not being able to move the memory icons to sort the stations, or not memorizing what is being heard when pressing and holding the memory key, it is a bit confusing to have to search and assign the number, I don't know if it could be my fault that I don't do it right ..., but it took me a bit to sort them ... Finally I found a fault or something strange operation when changing from day mode to dark mode, the radio performs like a blackout or reset at that moment and the screen remains with the stripes empty station in the middle, it's strange, I don't know if it will have a solution .. I leave a screenshot of one of the suggestions, and a video of the problem of changing the dark mode.

Hola, hoy he instalado navradio, y he cancelado la radio stock del menú de fábrica, el funcionamiento está muy bien, enhorabuena kotix2, es un gran trabajo, aun así me gustaría señalar algunas sugerencias y algo que hago no veo muy normal en el funcionamiento , la primera sugerencia es si en el mensaje emergente de la emisora de radio, también se podría mostrar el número de la posición de memoria en la que se encuentra .. p1, p2, p3 ...., que info estaría bien, también he encontrado algo extraño, no poder mover los íconos de la memoria para ordenar las estaciones, o no memorizar lo que se escucha al presionar y mantener presionada la tecla de memoria, es un poco confuso tener que buscar y asignar el número, no sé si puede ser mi culpa que no lo haga bien ..., pero me tomó un poco ordenarlos ...Finalmente encontré una falla o algo extraño funcionamiento al cambiar de modo día a modo oscuro, la radio funciona como un apagón o reinicio en ese momento y la pantalla se queda con las rayas de la estación vacía en el medio, es extraño, no lo sé si tendrá solución .. Les dejo una captura de pantalla de una de las sugerencias, y un video del problema de cambiar el modo oscuro.

Gracias.

XDA rules require that you write also in English, so please add the translation.
I'll see what I can do to add the station number in the notification.
About the dark mode switch i cannot do any better than this...
My app use standard android dark theming function and everytime there is a switch, i need to restart the activity to apply it.
the MTC apps use a dedicated background switching function that i cannot implement in my app.

sorry, the translator played a trick on me and I published in Spanish, it's already in English, as for the number it would be fine, the change of dark mode if it is not possible is not too serious, although if it becomes strange ... , perhaps in the future it would be nice to be able to choose a lighter interface for day mode and darker for night, in terms of memorizing the stations ..., would it be possible to memorize the station listened to by pressing and holding the memory key or something similar? ...

Thanks
Greetings

For some reason I cannot add text to the above thread entry. Anyway you can see I have no logos, even though they are set and the buttons are very narrow. Thanks

Hi, thanks for showing just the logo on the button, it looks good. It could also be for vertical buttons, but they are low and would like to enlarge them vertically and make them on both sides of the screen. Switching buttons from left to right works, it would be good to display both left and right. Unfortunately, the manual selection of icons does not work properly, when loading the screen turns black and everything freezes, only a restart of NavRadia will help. After the fifth reboot, the icon manager finally loaded it. In the end, it worked. PX5, android 10, HCT7, MTCE_GS. Thank you for your great work.

    Version 2.14 is coming out today:

    - Fixed all resolutions and displays density (i hope for last time)
    - Fixed "only logos" view for USA

    I now use many different folders (sw***dp) for each resolution.
    The formula used to determine the DP value of the folder is:
    "Smallest width in px" *160/DPI density
    For example for a 1024*600 240dpi display we apply the formula 600*160/240=400
    So the dimensions folder for this display will be sw400dp.
    The problems start if somebody use non standard density values. Malaysk in his roms for example force set a 220dpi density value,
    some other guy set 242dpi...
    I tried to preset the correct dimensions for these special cases too but I cannot know all of them, so please report me the correct display sizes and DPI values if you still have problems.

    Just testing 2.1.4. The buttons are still the same, too narrow and I still cannot use the logos I did before. I have renamed the logos as you instructed with _ instead of spaces and saved them as .png. No joy. Is there anything else I can try or send you to help?
    Well i need a new picture of how it look now. I have no other idea to make it match your resolution.
    It does look ok in all my emulators and in my 800*480 PX3 MTC unit.
    I will try to load on my unit your logos to check them out..
    Edit: i just tried on my phone and your logos are loaded without problems, even with original names with spaces.
    Please try using a file manager like total commander to select the PNG file instead of the gallery. Google gallery need to be refreshed sometimes to update its cache and it could show files that aren't really there.

    @KoTiX2 sorry i know what you are saying but not how to act. When I click on Add Logo is the system using a default file manager. I have nothing on the HU apart from Hal9k v10 and your app. I put the logo files onto ex FAT formatted USB stick with Windows 11pro as I have always done since owning a HU.
    Ok. You could simply download total commander from PlayStore and when you press the "choose logo" button click on the top left button to select total commander as file browser.( I'll make you a video when I have some time)

    Anyway, i was able to reproduce the problem and i can say that it occurs if the files are on USB and you use the default file chooser.
    I'm working on the solution and I'm pretty close to release it but you have to consider that if you remove the USB stick the logos will not show up because it cannot find the files.
    Best way would be that you copy these files on internalSD and you select them from there, otherwise i will have to add a function to copy each logo from USB to internalSD when assigning them.
    Right now i cannot thing on other alternatives..

    Regarding the resolution problem, i've added some code to increase the buttons height just for the 1280*480 displays so you should be fine for that too ;)

    First i want to thank to the developer. Amazing app! But do you know how can uninstall/disable the original FM apk și when i touch the radio button from the panel of my HU to open the navradio+ instead of the old app?
    Disable original app in factory settings of your unit.
    For the button you need a custom ROM.

    [url]https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.navimods.radio[/URL]
    With full support for all MTC devices.
    13
    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. :)

    Some more news for this week (the image should be self explanatory):
    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.
    8
    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.

    Ok guys, most of the requested fixes are coming out with v1.56 release:

    Fixed AudioFocus when using mic in navi app (this was a very old request)
    Fixed for MTC the problem that app wasn't killed after source change and with AF or TA enabled it was starting back on itslef (tnx @emre33 for report)
    Fixed widget controls unusable after 40sec (tnx @ Al Ferro)
    Added double click to switch between alternative frequencies of a station
    Changed statusbar Notifications with new icon and better layout (tnx @the-unknown)


    FCC integration will come probably next week or later, sorry ;)
