Sorry to ask but why did you want to remove the original app before being sure that NavRadio work on your model?
Does NavRadio do the autoscan? Can it set any station?
Don't be sorry my friend :)
I want to change the original app in order to activate RDS and AF which are not available in original app.
In Navradio I can do the autoscan but there is no station set automatically. All the buttons are working.
If the app is not working with my unit, is there any other alternative?

I tested the free version on my Atoto S8 Gen2 10.1 Premium, and it worked!
The last one, I tried a while back, just rebooted itself on loop at startup. Maybe I tried the wrong one?

Well, anyway, RDS just doesn't want to work properly. It changes to totally different stations and so on.
Is this why one should remove the original radio app?
I mean, I'm already thinking about buying the full version of your app...

No, RDS AF function it's totally broken on your device just like on all FYT devices. It cannot be fixed by software as it is handled by MCU and radio chip.
Removing the original app is only to avoid having it running on startup when you turn on your device.

Damn, that's a shame :(
But thanks for the info, so I won't be removing the original for nothing...
Might still be buying your app, though :D

I don't have any solution, sorry.
I"d need to buy a unit like yours to make it work but I cannot buy every single model out there.
Hi my friend, I don't know if my idea is workable.
Is there any chance to add a script in order to make navradio+ as a default radio app instead of the original one.
Maybe it will fix my problem

    when update cambus compatibility to show radio freq ?
    Hey, I'm a single developer that do this as an hobby.
    I wish to have more time but I have a real life with a family to care about and a real job too
    Things will come when i found the time to work on them.

    I try to dedicate to this app as much time as i can but please understand that in my priorities I always put first the bugs fixing to leave a usable version of the app in playstore.

    To fix the canbus stuff first i need a car with canbus that i don't have, then I need to understand how the radio send the freq info to canbus.
    The original radio app is a mess code coming from all older versions of FYT devices and it's really hard to understand how they managed everything.
    If anybody wish to help me on this part is very wellcome ;)

    As i know temperature reading is available only on MTC devices. Is it there on FYT devices too?
    Temperature is there on FYT devices if you have a CANbus and your car has a sensor to display the outside temperature. This temperature can then be displayed in the notification bar.

    Regarding the weather, I don't know if it is available on the FYT devices, but I imagined it as something like a widget that updates its location and temperature information via the Internet.

    The FYTs also have a weather widget, but this is indeed displayed as a widget on the screen and not in the notification bar. Next to that: it is quite buggy.

    Version 2.51 is coming out for testers:

    Added blur, zoom and fading options in settings for Logo wallpaper
    Fixed aspect ratio of Logo wallpaper
    Fixed Pause on MTC devices that was resuming play once in background
    Possible fix for audio lost on T3L and TS18 models
    Fixed am/FM switching on ts10

    Uhm.. honestly i don't know if exist a way to start up an app in splitscreen mode.
    Not on Android 11 or above. It's not allowed anymore for security reasons.
    (Another proof that when it still functions on our uis7862 units with that splitscreen app, it is very clear that these Android 11 or Android 12 are fake!)

    Version 2.50 will be out tomorrow:

    Added Bulgarian language
    Added pause function from steering wheel controls (on FYT devices it will not restart playing if it was paused, can be done only from touch screen)
    Fixed implicit intent errors
    Fixed small frequency in grid view

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

    SOME TIPS AND GUIDES

    - REMOVE ORIGINAL RADIO APP -​
    There are some issues due to original radio app coexistance. To avoid these issues the best option is to remove the original radio app from the system using the FYT_Radio_REMOVER/RESTORER tool availabe here:


    Extract the zip file on the root of a FAT32 USB disk so you have:
    a folder "BACKUP_RADIO_APK"
    a folder "lsec_updatesh"
    a file "lsec6315update"
    a file "lsec6316update"
    a file "lsec6521update"

    With unit powered up and android running, insert the USB and when prompted press "START".
    This will reboot the unit and run some shell commands to rename the original radio app from "******_com.syu.radio.apk" into "*******_com.syu.radio.bak" so it will not be found by android.
    You will see some linux commands scrolling and at the end you'll see a green text "update success!Pls remove device". Do it and the unit will reboot to android with radio disabled.
    The script will also make copy of the original radio app on the USB in the folder "BACKUP_RADIO_APK" in case you need it in the future.

    TO RESTORE THE ORIGINAL APP
    Simply insert again the USB with same files in it and let the process run again.

    Essentially everytime the USB stick is inserted, it remove the original app renaming it with .bak extension or if the .bak file exist it restore it back with .apk extension.
    You can use it as many times you want.



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------​

    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.
    For USA and Canada the assignment of the logo is is done by searching the frequency of the station in the logo file name.

    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. :)

    Hi, unfortunately for me the app conflicts with the original app of the radio. When I switch on the car, the original app starts by default, then if I finish the original one and start navradio it works. All this on radio isudar qled 6 g of ram 128 of rom.
    Yes, on all fyt units right now it's working in this way.
    I'll release a tool to disable the original radio app flashing a command with an USB disk.
    please be patience a little more...
