Has anyone found an alternative way to playing Spotify? The stock one that's available on the play store isn't really user friendly or appropriate for a head unit...

- Overlays to run widgets over other apps, showing a speedometer and music controls over every app I choose.
- Ubiquity Music Widget, the music controls mentioned above.
- Sygic for offline maps.
- Pulsar for music playback: probably most lightweight music player on Android. Poweramp caused the unit to overheat.
- DAB-Z for DAB radio.

What I usually do is open it in Google Maps on my phone and save it as one of my Starred Places. Then I open Google Maps on my headunit and look it up in there. I haven't found a more appropriate way to do it and I don't know if there's a way to do the same for Waze since I don't use it much, but If anybody has a better way feel free t share it.

OK so what I do is I have downloaded messanger lite on Android head unit. When I receive a location I share it to messanger to my Frnd or a mock profile and open the link from head unit.

I'm looking for a couple of things:

1. A simple widget for Radio, allowing me to change station from the widget on the Home screen (the one that Joying PX-5) came with is ugly and small)
2. An automatic way to switch to home screen on boot-up instead of default Radio screen. The radio should continue playing, however.

For point #2 above, would a Tasker or Automate do the trick?

Try FCC Launcher, you shoud find everything you want, and it's highly configurable.

There are a lot of configurable launchers. Can it do what I'm looking for, specifically? Also can it leave y interface alone and not change it? I like old school Windows look with separate icons on uncluttered background. Really don't need my screen to look "pretty".
