Is it planned to support more car manufacturer in future? E.g. i can't select my car (Seat Ibiza) right now. I guess it shouldn't be that hard to get this working, because other modells of the Volkwagen group are already implemented?

Thanks a lot!

Yes we'd like to; we have a 'other' options for input the Car which is not listed, did you try that? or what kind of function is not working for your (Seat Ibiza) maybe?

Can you support show Waze map at the main menu? Wave map more stable and smoother than Google Map at all. I mean don't need to replace it, just add an option to Settings.

When the car is in service (or valet parking) google account data and private data could.be compromised. Could be a future option for blocking the access to the unit by means of pin code?

When trying to.put a direction on main screen the keyboard is blocked with a message that typing while.driving is not allowed. In my case the car was parked. Is it a bug? Is there any way to enable keyboard typing?

    Simple Suggestion: Sometimes I find a need to manually restart the headunit, for whatever reason, and cannot do so easily without having to make a setting change that prompts it. Can a restart button, ir app, be added?

    It appears that the vivid launcher is taking over the Bluetooth in some way and randomly changing the pin code on each reboot. I've worked very hard to get the OBDlink mx+ working on my px6 Dasaita unit and it works but upon each reboot the pin on the head unit changes and I have to change it back before it will connect again even though it's still claiming to be paired. Is there any way to prevent this from happening or maybe this could be added as a option in the future?
    hmmm, thanks for the feedback, will change this behavior in later release, stay tune thanks

    Check on the equalizer app and on the factory settings if everything is correct

    Hello,

    I see that currently the preview of the map is done by google map but I would like this preview to be done via waze is it possible?

    second thing in the music widget on the right it can't load more items from youtube music and spotify I only have the current title displayed any ideas why it do this ?
    Hi for waze preview, right cannot because Waze official don't provide a sdk mapview for thirdparty to integrate. But if you are using px6 vivid ROM, you can use system split screen to do that (but only trigger manually)
    For the right side, you mean you want to browse content of spotify? That's not possible because Spotify don't allow that as well.. You can only click the now playing cover to go into spotify app to do that.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    In my opinion....vivid team is making a huge effort on supporting customized ROMs which I think...is a nonsense.
    Stock manufacturers rom must be a base .... whoever wanted vivid....just install stock and vivid or a full vivid rom.
    Vivid team should pay attention on the vivid enhancement and new features and not to change behavior for customized roms....what could cause that new bugs appear over the stock and vivid roms, which is the intended market.
    So @KhangTran476 i suggest you to move to stock/ vivid rom in order to try the vivid features and report the bugs or new enhaccements in a more efficient way.

    If vivid is not working on customized paid roms....it is a duty of the rom's author (who is get paid ) to solve it
