OK Logos loaded no problem with TC, an app I have never had installed before.

I take the new button size code is yet to be uploaded to PS? Below is an image of how the button looks now (A) and below (B) is how it used to look. The text was aligned before and the logo bigger. A and B buttons
Ok. Now we know that total commander method work and that the problem come from the Google file chooser. But it's not only that: in my app the logos are intended to be loaded from internalSD not from USB. Specifically from "radioLogos" folder on the root of internal sdcard.
This because USB can be removed, because it is slower and not reliable as internal.
I fixed the code today to make it load the logo from USB correctly but then I got errors broadcasting it to make it show on external widgets ( like FCC or agama ones).
So my point is: please copy those 8 files in radioLogos folder on internal disk. You can also create a subfolder in it like "mylogos"...
In the while I'll see if I can make some kind of advertisement or copy them automatically.

I'm sorry but the buttons never looked like at your B example. You can look at the pictures on first post of this thread or at the PlayStore NavRadio page to see how they always has been.

@KoTiX2

Thank you once again for your continued support. Below are two links to images. The first one is 2.14+ and the one below is 2.10+.

2.14+
2.10+

As you can see the button sizes are completely different. There is a logo in the second image I just didn't get it in frame. You wrote the app, so I will gladly accept my mistake reference logo and text alignment. However is it something you can do. I am of the opinion it looks a lot neater. Incidentally I have just been to kotixworld but cannot find the donate button.

Version 2.15:

- Fixed 1024x600 220dpi for mtc and s32f0
- Fixed 1280x480 240dpi view
- Some more fix for manual logos assignements

@HatManSan I set only for your resolution an height of the buttons bar of 200dp instead of 170dp I hope it's enough for you. Let me know.

Hi,
first thanks to KoTiX2 for this Program.
Runs perfectly, looks cool.
I do have one small beauty flaw.
I have a RV5754 PX5 with android 10.
When the headlight of the car is switched on or off-.
Change day or night theme then the radio sound stops for 1 sec. it is only on Navradio.
Is this only the case with me?
thx

The day/night switching in NavRadio is made in a different way from the MTC other apps.
In my app i use the android day/night modes that need a restart of the activity, while MTC use 2 custom themes to apply it.
Anyway I will check and try to fix it.
Tnx for reporting it. ;)

Hi, could you not create a power button in the bottom bar in the next update that will end the radia process?

The radio can only be terminated via this menu.

If the radio does not end, it will start automatically the next time it starts.

My app can be terminated with the back button.
Back button functionality can be changed in NavRadio settings, you can choose between single or double tap or long click.
There is no need to add another power button.

Hello. Looks like the head unit does not support AF which is strange. You know if there is any possibility to activate somehow this function?
Your unit have T3L type of MCU which doesn't support rds at all.
There is nothing that you can do about it. Your radio chip or MCU don't have RDS.
They should not sell these kind of units outside of china...

Hi @KoTiX2, I sent to you a DM with the log file from searching in background. I installed the malaysk rom now but the problem still continues. I hope the log will help you this time. Thx

    @KoTiX2 hey man I install Malaysk last rom and after that I cant resize the widget of your app...
    When I try to drag the spaces its does not let me...
    I am talking about the widget which is at vertical.
    Horizontal does not exist at the widget at all.
    That because malaysk have modified the launcher and the DPI settings of the unit.
    I can't fix it for malaysk rom without braking it for other roms.
    Better if you use Hal9k rom if you need my widget ;)

    I just updated to 2.16 but now I have two issues:
    1. I use the popup notification of Hal9k Mod4. IIRC this notification used to show not only the frequency when changing stations, but also the station name, plus the station name of the next and previous station in the list. Now it only shows the frequency, please see 1st attached screenshot.
    2. After this notification, there now is a second popup notification which shows "CanBusDisplay: freq=xxxx group=yyy index=z", please see 2nd attached screenshot.
    Can these issues be fixed somewhere in the NavRadio+ options? (I didn't find any settings for this.) If not, please fix them. Thanks. :)
    Please deactivate the "testMode" in settings/about... Double clicking on the icon.
    This will remove the "CanbysDisplay..." Popup.
    I haven't change anything in other notifications except a small string adjustment so I'm almost sure I'm not responsable for Hal9k toast.
    Be sure you haven't changed the notification of metadatas in Navradio settings.
    ;)

    NavRadio+ is now available on playstore here:
    [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 ;)
