I bought this yesterday for my CC3 and it looks great after a quick play with it.

One issue so far though - I'm in the UK so downloaded the UK logo pack OK from within the app, but the extraction seemed to go on forever and not complete. In the end I copied the file to my USB stick and unzipped them on my PC, but was I just impatient? It must have been going to 10 minutes or so, as it was long enough to trigger the car going into power shutoff mode, is that usual? It's a shame there's no logo auto-assignment for the UK as it's a bit of a pain manually doing it.
Yep, i'm very sorry about it. Version 2.57 is actually broken. :(

there is a problem with Logo extraction and Dutch language.
they will be fixed tonight/tomorrow with v2.58.

Be sure you haven't enabled "live RDS"
Live RDS isn't enabled. The settings are what I had set prior to the firmware update. It looks like something fundemental changed that affects how the radio chip talks to the MCU (just my guess). My radio chip is the NXP6686 (TEF6686).

I'm in Southern California, and I think most stations transmit purely RDS on PS. Some will have the song name/artist scrolling there. What my radio used to do was take that scrolling PS text and put it in the field below the big frequency number/station name.

To summarize, RDS text DOES work, but only through PS. So if I decide to save the station with a name, all that shows on the screen is "KIIS FM" with no RDS text underneath. If I don't save and name a station, the PS text will scroll in the big frequency section.

Not sure how it all works really, but these are just my guesses.

Yes, you described perfectly the situation. in USA the RDS text field is almost unused by radio stations, just a few broadcast the text in that field and everything is sent in the PS filed.
I maybe remember wrong but if you set your region to USA NavRadio should automatically work like if live-rds is enabled and show continuously all the strings that change in PS field.
If it's not like that then just try to enable the liverds option.
To be sure that USA region is set correctly, navradio should show the callsign label in the stations buttons and you should be able to download the logos for California and all the other US states.
If you are from Mexico and you set south America as region, then you need to the use liverds option.

Hello, after the v2.58 Band update with the FYT device Agama launcher installed, FYT devices started to ask if the agama application was started at every boot, there is an error for your information.
Also, after performing a frequency scan, the frequency warning remains on the screen until you close and open the program.

Are you using the app FytHwOneKey?
That warning is for.the BAND button, you should select NavRadio, not Agama!
I have no idea why it show you agama. That is just for the BAND/Radio button or any button that start the original radio app.

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.

Hi,

I followed the steps by unzipping the file into FAT32, but unfortunately, when I inserted the USB stick into the Headunit, I saw no "START" button to prompt.

Any ideas?

Regards,

    Here's info on my radio as well.
    You have a Topway based TS10 MCU and firmware. That is currently not supported as far as I know. It's completely different from a FYT unit despite the same CPU and audio hardware.
    It also means that the flashing process is completely different. This will not work.

    I think we or I miss communicated..email Im referring to app working on my radio! with us discussing the remover/tool is where you are correct ! Sorry for the mix up! As far as settings theirs built in settings and car settings app which one do I look for the switch to flag the radio off?
    In the settings menu that you posted pictures, go to factory, insert password (123456 i guess)
    Then go to "config" and you find the "Radio" to switch off

    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. :)

    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 ;)

    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...
