Ciao Marco, e grazie per la tua stupenda app. L'ho comprata qualche tempo fa e la trovo spaziale.
Volevo chiederti aiuto per associare i loghi alle stazioni: per qualche motivo l'assegnazione automatica non funziona, e quella manuale è impossibile perché non trovo i loghi da nessuna parte.
Ovviamente ho scaricato il pacchetto e l'ho estratto, l'app mi dà l'ok ma poi non vengono comunque assegnati e non li trovo da nessuna parte :(
L'autoradio è una Dasaita Max10.
Riesci ad aiutarmi? Grazie!!

Hi KoTiX, and thanks for your great app. I bought it some time ago and I find it wonderful.
Can you help me to associate logos to stations? For some reason the automatic assignment doesn't work, and the manual one is impossible because I can't find the logos anywhere.
Obviously I downloaded the package and extracted it, it seems ok but they are not assigned anyway and I can't find them anywhere :(
The car radio is a Dasaita Max10.
Can you help me? Thank you!!

you can download zip file of logos; then with file manager go to android/data/com.navimods.radio/files/radiologos
copy zip file on your usb and extract folder from your computer
then copy folder on flash memory (0)

or with an unzip app directly on device (copy folder radiologos with zip file on root of memory 0)

Guys, I'm updating the app to support android 11.
Please be patience some more days that I'll release the new version on PlayStore.
I will need some beta testers for Android 11 as i can test it only on the emulator.

I know Navradio+ ist not a media player. It would be nice if the media_playpause action could be integrated.
Maybe it ist possible to have a button in app-screen to stop playing in the same way as the FCC player widget does?

Hi, you can try Ubiquity Music Widget:

Ubiquity doesn't seem to work on Android 10.
Anyway I'll think about it.
Today I'm going to release an update with initial support to android 11: logos download,extract and assign work.
Settings and station lists backup/restore half work...
It include also:
-a better handling and highlight of drag&drop
- confirm to delete station
- edit button show up on long press

The music widget from FCC works very fine. In the widget I can press play/pause to start/stop radio.
The point is, I can't use the hardwarebutton Play/Pause because navradio+ is not a mediaplayer. (It would be nice if navradio can recognize the action and stop/play if it has music focus on it.)
A second suggestion: Maybe it is possible to add an tap action for the logo in main screen or a button in the navradio app to stop/play=turn on/turn off radio playing.

I'm still trying to make NavRadio work as a media player but after more than a month trying i got bored and started doing something else. I will be back on it in July, i just needed a pause ;)
I'll see what I can do about your request of the play/pause function.

Today I'm going to release an update V2.40 of NavRadio+ with:

- initial support to android 11(logos download,extract and assign work.
Settings and stations lists backup/restore half work...)
-a better handling and highlight of drag&drop
- confirm dialog to delete station
- edit button show up on long press

Russian users still cannot update because of Google restrictions caused by the war with Ukraine.
Many Russians are rating my app 1 star on PlayStore because of this but i have nothing to do with it and i cannot share my app outside of PlayStore. All this cause my total rating to decrease quickly.

So I'll appreciate if have now all people who like my app give a 5 stars rating on PlayStore to raise up a little the total rating.
Thanks in advance and enjoy the new update ;)

Thanks for the update! :)

I'm in your beta program on Play Store, so I can give you just a personal feedback but can't leave a public rating.

Should I leave the beta program for this? Will I miss some updates then?

To assign applications to a button, you can try MtcdTools:

I believe you can exit and than enter again with the link I sent you.
Anyway don't worry about it, someone else will help too.
Thx btw ;)

    Hi, have you checked if the fix is possible at all?
    Yes, I was able to add a delay after NavRadio start that i'll need you yo test since i can't reproduce your issue on any of my units
    I also added some new nice speedometers layouts toggable by clicking on it.
    Now i have to add a drag and drop function to move it around the screen ;)

    hello kotix2, for a couple of versions, something is happening to me that did not happen to me before, the fact is that if I restart the device completely the radio starts up and is heard perfectly, but if I restart only from being asleep, the radio goes in the background but it is not heard, I have to go to the icon to activate it and it starts to be heard, I use hal9k ROM, but before I also used it and this did not happen to me, do you know why this may be happening?

    Thanks.
    Cheers

    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.
    14
    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.

    I uploaded on YouTube a small video showing the new upcoming Drag&Drop + Swipe feauters of NavRadio+

    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.

    VIDEO HERE

    Suggestions and comments are wellcome ;)

    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.
