If I'm perfectly happy with the NavRadio BASIC, is there anything wrong with using it all the time? Unfortunately, no rating is possible!

Do you know what would be perfect? An app that can do FM and DAB! Then automatic switching between dab and ukw would be possible. The range change is the same as it is now with AM. So selection AM/FM/DAB+. Am I allowed to dream?
(The DYNAVIN Android car radio D8-151 Pro has such a common app, where 2 FM and 1 Dab tuner are supported)

Of course but why are you asking this?
Try the free version and you'll find out yourself if it satisfies your needs

I have already purchased navradio + but the duck volume does not work, that is, it does not lower the volume as it happens with spotify and poweramp. Do I have to activate something in the settings? Thanks

Are you using vivid launcher?
Are you using a custom ROM?
Volume duck is working perfectly on all my MTC devices with android versions from 7 to 11..

Love the basic and I want to buy the + but it is acting funny with my unit. My MCU is:
2021.10.09 10:12:29 YIN_53_L6315_G23P48F64_E60_V:1.0
It launches the stock app. half of the time. I'm using Agama Car Launcher Pro. Any clue?

Btw, I know this is a big ask but integration with an app like Audio Glow Music Visualizer (link below) or it having native visuals like it that move to the music would be epic! File this under "Only Dreams?" Lol

You have a FYT kind of unit so you should follow the thread here:
In second post you can find a tool to remove the original radio app.

About the visualizer, it cannot be done because the audio from the radio don't pass through android is handled only by hardware.
You can notice it yourself the when radio play the glow visualizer stay flat.

Thanks for the quick reply and for letting me know what kind of unit I have. Been trying to figure that out for a minute now.

I will check that thread out and purchase the + once I get it working. Too bad about the visualizer but thanks for the explanation.

    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.
