Hi All,

I have a Dasaita Vivid 10 HD head unit. with the default version of Google app version 10.65.11.21 when i ask google to call a number in my contatcs it keeps saying " sorry, i didn't understand" and does nothing

I have MCTdialer 1.2.3 installed and have also tried with 1.3.0 with the same results, cleared cache each time before uninstall and reinstall.

With the latest version of the google app 13.2.19.23 a call button pops up and only dials if i manually press it after selecting MCTdialer as the default call app.

I obvioulsy would like it so i dont have to manually press anything and just use voice to make the call.

any ideas how to fix this?

edit, sorry my head unit is MCTE_HA_V3.78_1

Thanks for your help but no luck, im thinking it may have something to do with which version of the google app is installed?

I already had the google assistant version installed thats in the video.

Still get the "Sorry, i dont understand" with the older versions of Google i have tried and only the latest Google app version 13.2.19.23 seems to bring up the phone icon with call button. unsure if theres others that may work?

I don't know, did you try to disable automatic updates on google play? Did you delete in Google? Everything is in the video. You can try disabling protection against malicious applications using Google Play Protect.

Hi Pavel,

Did all that and still no luck, it doesnt seem to let me install any versions older than the factory version.

cannot delete google fully but i have uninstalled updates to go back to 10.65.11.21. this version just says "sorry i don't understand" when i try make a call with voice.

the closest i get is the latest version of google pops up a phone button but i have to manually press it for it to dial with mctdialer.

I had everything working in my other car with a Dasaita MAX 10 HD, but since the car was destroyed in an accident i cannot remember what versions of the software it came with, bought it in dec 2020

Unfortunately, I can't think of anything else. Perhaps try to install Hal9k mod5, Francesco Francy has it installed. I recommend you buy the Mod 5.02 update, the accuracy of gps is now 1 meter, originally 12 meters. It's perfect.

ok i got it working flawlessly, grabbed a random version of google being 11.4.9.21.arm64 and it works.

no more pushing a button i just say "call xxx" and it dials instantly.

there maybe newer versions which work but since i got it working im not going to mess with it any more

dont really want to mess with roms, only just bought the unit and it came with Vivid .
never messed with roms before so scared it will break something.

It was only a recommendation, if everything works for you, then of course stay with the factory firmware. Especially since you put voice control into operation, congratulations.

Good Evening folks,
since google update you have to use the 1.3 or the 1.2.3 mtcdialer.
Uninstall previous version and wipe the cache before and reinstall one of this.
Then use google assistance to make a call, e.g. call mom and press the button with "call" until a window open, asking for using which dialer app should be used. There choose "mtcdialer even".
(You remember, this was previously done with google app himself.)

However, one little Horse shoe it has:
Beside the bt connection, it need now an active network. For this use your phone hotspot function. And don't worry it seem only there is a need for network having available is registered but without using it.
@rabenkind where do i find these versions? thanks

    Android9 version

    A few weeks ago I created a pull request for the android 9 changes for MtcDialer on github, but it seems like @f1x is no longer active :(
    I am releasing this version without his approval... The credits still goes to him for this great app. Thank you @f1x

    https://github.com/scorillo/MtcDialer/releases/tag/1.2.3

    It is working good on my Android 9 PX6 unit

    I have the contacts in the Bluethooh app inside so that not only the phone number shows me the number but also the contact name.
    OK, let's explain this one more time, hopefully for the last time, how these units works.


    The headunits have a bluetooth module connected to the MCU board (it is not integrated to the Android SOM).
    The module have its microphone connected to the MCU microphone, its audio out connected to the MCU audio mixer and it is connected to the Android SOM via the USB hub also on the MCU board. Android OS controls the BT module via AT commands.


    So this BT module is not used as the one in your phone, it has only a limited functionality. It is mainly used as a handsfree headset (can also interact with some ODB adapters).


    To be able to use this BT module for receiving and placing calls, the chinese developers created some special services and applications. The main user interface (app) is that Bluetooth app. So in the stock ROM Android OS does not know it can place and receive calls, because the unit does not have a GSM module with SIM card.


    That Bluetooth app is using contacts that are downloaded from your paired phone.
    Standard Android dialers uses contacts from the android/google account set up on the unit (not the one on the paired phone). OK Google / Google Assistant will try to use contacts from this contacts list!



    What MtcDialer does, is to be an adapter for those Bluetooth services mentioned earlier. When the android is trying to place a phone call, MtcDialer will use that chinese proprietary apps/services to place the call via your paired phone. That is why you will see the same user interface for the outgoing call, because it is using that Bluetooth app. The app will dial the number (digits) received from MtcDialer, but will display the corresponding Contact Name downloaded from the phone (not from android contacts).


    So if you use the Google Assistant and ask to place a call to a contact, it will search that contact in Android Contacts, will take the phone number (digits) from there, will use MtcDialer to place the call, MtcDialer it will use the Bluetooth app to actually place the call, so the name displayed when the call is in progress it is the name downloaded from the paired phone.


    If you use the same Google Account on the car unit and on the paired phone, you may not spot a difference. But, as I do, use different Google Accounts, you will see the difference.



    Because the android on these units was designed to only work as a Bluetooth Headset, the stock ROM does not even have the Google Contacts Sync adapter and a Contacts app installed.


    I hope everyone understands how things are working and see less complains about Google Assistant not finding the contact.


    Just a hope :)

    MTCDialer Installationguide for Newbees, Beginners, Dummies....

    Hi to all,
    I write this, because of my own expirience. There is a misunderstanding, how to install.
    How to install it the right way you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8JbDGoSvjA
    Unfortuanally it`s german, but watch it exactly and you are able to use the dialer.
    Other way is to read my guide:

    Introduction:
    ---NO ROOT NEEDED!!!!
    ---MCTDialer 1.2.2 works with usual px3 and px5 HU ( xtron, erisin, witson, and so on) and Android 6 or higher.
    ---Google assistant ("OK Google") has been installed CORRECTLY. Best way including it is working offline too.
    ---Download the MTCDialer apk to your HU, refer Post #1 or use the links coming with the linked clip above.
    ---when you have google assistant on your phone too: make sure it is not able to react parallel.
    (Normally if your phone is turned on but not activated (screen is dark), otherwise disable activation by saying "OK
    Google" or your voice) at first.
    ---when you use a contact app on your HU then disable it... There is no need for, when you initiate mtcdialer the way described below. (You can delete it after succeed testing the installation guide)

    Installation (true step by step):
    --- connect your phone with your HU via bluetooth.
    ---make sure the embaded HU BT is really paired with your phone.
    ---install the MTCDialer apk. (after direct download you will find it in the internal storage/download folder) on the int. storage
    When installation is ready don't open the mtcdialer, just click finish. (click even means push on it with your finger)
    ---Open the Google BrowserApp himself (do not open the google assistent or Chrome or Firefox or something else)
    ---use the searchbar and WRITE: call 03000 ( you can use your natural language, if you install it with google assistant) and press enter or go or ready
    ---click on the first blue colored phone icon (under the searchbar)
    ---Now there are presented some icons. You choose the mtcdialer by click it (remember: with your finger)
    ---At next click on the second phone icon* to start the call *( mostly a blue circle with a white phone)
    ---When the phone bar appears click on the red button. mtcdialer now is stored as default using app. (IMPORTANT)
    ---Say "OK Google call mom in law" (When you saved her as dragon then say "OK Google call dragon", cos google don't know about the nickname you gave. When you stored dragon with more than one number, the assistant will request which one is to use)
    ---It should function now. So be happy and face your next problem, e.g. with the dragon sitting beside you during this procedure

    I hope this guide helps you. I read it to my rave and he was succesfull using it.
    So I'm sure you will succeed too.
