Thank you for your efforts. It has been highly useful to tweak the widescreen.

The only issue I am having with it is the Navcard. For some reason, the Navcard sizing doesn't work at all (using Google Maps) regardless of the selected option. Am I missing another setting?

No, you are not missing anything.

Those options only work with 3rd party navs that use the new App for cars library (e.g. Sygic, AmiGO, Flitsmeister, 2GIS)

As stated in the release notes, it should be able to work just fine but since I have no way of testing, I can't surely tell so please report back if successful.
Tested and working fine without any issues, thanks!

Edit: I have since noted when I use animations all of the buttons on the navigation bar are very slow to respond, I end up pressing them several times until I get a response, as soon as I disable the animations they start responding immediately again.

I'm having issues changing anything related to the icons or navbar on one ui 3.0 samsung s20.
Using the latest app and AA 6.0.x
As soon as I enable the overlays the app bootloops on the car display and as soon as I disable them it works well again without replug the cable even.

Anyone else?
Probably a Samsung issue since the app is integrated into one ui.

Hi,
What would be the correct way to revert all settings to use the Standard Android Auto?
Reinstall AA? Uninstall substratum? Any cashed data?

If you need to revert everything just for cleaning's sake, the fastest way is by erasing Substratum module in Magisk. This will of course erase all the overlays, including the ones from other themes.

If you need to do a clean install because you are updating Android Auto, a simple uninstall of overlays will be enough.

If you want to be a real ninja and need to update Android Auto, you can install each and every overlay you've built without uninstalling the overlays.

Hi shmykelsa,
Can you please tell me how can I change the position of second space to the left. The default of mine is on the right:
1614831439929.jpeg


But I saw your example image shows that you can move it to the left like this:

Please help me to show how can I move the second space to the left?. Thanks

    Just wondering if theres any way to force the statusbar and clock on the second screen (layout1) instead of statusbar on the main screen (layout2).

    Hi,

    That's technically possible. It would require some work and the "Widescreen" options would be double the one they are now. I will make something out of it but it will probably not look good when Maps is there and it's not very high priority right now.

    Are you bored of Android Auto UI? You can't stand the fact that on your car you have two clocks on the screen? Do you want to personalize your look of Android Auto tweaking the UI to your likings?



    If yes is the answer to any of the questions above, you are in the right place!



    Meet Extras For AA Collection, the most advanced way to tweak Android Auto's look



    Extras For AA + Wallpapers For AA = 💕



    In case you missed it, I've made another Substratum Theme for Android Auto to personalize the default background. Check out Wallpapers For AA now!



    1. Extras For AA

    Extras For AA is the first theme of the collection. It was born to be a theme to personalize some elements in Android Auto, and now it is a very comprehensive theme that can tweak a lot of things inside Android Auto.

    Here's a preview of what this theme can do:

    06609c8714f8ec188f8b5.png

    cfde7a2dd4ce75cf8efa3.png



    CUSTOM BAR MODES
    5cf316cd83b54300eb26b.png

    Custom bar modes!

    One Button? Two Buttons? Three Buttons?

    One Button: navbar is just launcher icon
    Two Buttons: combine launcher icon with the recent app or notification icon
    Three buttons: combine launcher with notifications and recent app

    Madness Mode = Clock instead of launcher icon

    +N = + Notifications
    +Q = + Quick access app

    H = Horizontal
    V = Vertical


    Other modifications available:

    • Reduce or remove bottom bar/status bar of AA
    • Personalize the look of 3rd party apps menus like navigators (AmiGo, Sygic, 2GIS...)
    • Swap the launcher button with the clock, thanks to madness mode
    • Pick your favourite gradient and apply it to what you'd like! Bar, widget, heads up notifications and even custom bar modes!
    • Customize colours of various things such as accent (bottom widget), bottom bar, caption of apps, heads up notifications, notification center...
    • Choose between all the status bar customization
    • Much much more!


    There's an entire document covering most of the options available. Check out now more previews!

    LEGACY VERSION

    If your device can't run Substratum Lite, download the specific version of Extras For AA which is called Legacy. This version is optimized for old devices that can't run Substratum Lite.
    If your device can run Substratum Lite, go for normal one!



    2. Icons For AA

    With Icons For AA (previously Extras For AA Icons Special) you can personalizse:
    • Exit Icons
    • Status Bar Icons
    • Bottom bar Icons
    • More to come!

    3. Animations For AA

    Third and newest theme from the Extras For AA collection. With Animations For AA, you can personalize:
    • App switch animation
    • App enter animation (Android 6.1+)
    • App exit animation (Android 6.1+)

    Icons For AA and Animations For AA have no Legacy version

    Compatibility

    Android 11?

    Substratum is very limited on Android 11 and for the time being it can only apply very light modifications to user-installed apps. This is out of my control and I don't know whether it will be fixed or not. Extras For AA has so many modifications and making a very light version for Android 11 is just not worth it. Icons For AA and Animations For AA will mostly work fine.

    Synergy?

    For some reasons, Synergy won't apply themes outside of the phone's screen. This has been an ongoing issue since OneUI 1.0 and unfortunately I don't think it will be ever fixed. Blame Samsung!

    Android 6?

    You can technically install Substratum on Android 6, but it relies on a old implementation that is not compatible with the actual Substratum. Android 6 is not supported.


    Stay updated!

    New version of Extras for AA has been pushed to XDA Labs

    Version 2.0 brings the following changes:


    • Heads up notifications can be now modified. They can be smaller, translucent or both! They can also be gradient themed (by also building "Heads Up Have Gradient" extra)
    • Most of the extras have been renamed to have a shorter name. This is to avoid reaching the characters limit in Substratum that will lead built overlays to always stay pink
    • A welcome dialog will now show up when opening Extras For AA. It will contain all the useful information, help, as well as options to make a donation to me. If you like my work, even a small amount will be appreciated ?
    • More option for immersive mode: bottom bar can be now set to 0.9x and 0.01x. The latter is very dangerous, bar will basically be totally hidden and launcher will be unreacheable. Please choose 0.01 only if you know what you're doing.
    • Revisited some gradient names
    • Purple gradient has been revisited
    • Added 4 new gradients

    Also new: Extras For AA is now open source! https://github.com/shmykelsa/extras4aa

    CLEAN INSTALL IS REQUIRED
    If you previously built overlays of Extras for AA, please first uninstall them. You can install them back just fine with new version.

    Also if you want sneek peaks of new updates, as well as release candidates of next builds of WP4AA and Extras4AA, be sure to join the update channel on Telegram


    Please don't forget to rate and review on XDA Labs. It helps the development a lot!

    Keep in mind when downloads and userbase is decreasing then theme updates will also slow down by a lot and eventually stop.

    So if you like my work please take a moment and give a rate!
