In general moving from radio to local music and back by means of using the multimedia screen from.vivid is very slow....it does not react to the first touch of icons...you have to press several times to the action be executed
wow, because of loading data slow or pure switch is slow?

Its fixed in the new ROM.
Old ROM: Vivid 20211119 -> Favorites dont work
New ROM: Vivid 20211123 -> Favorites work

But could you add the possibility to add a Folder/Album as a Favorite, not just a single Song?

And more important - please make the "PLAY" button more accessible:

So make the area bigger - because when i try to hit it while im driving, 7/10 it does not recognize/misses.
oh, you are using the card dashboard, make sense, will look into that

@KhangTran476 @nicebaby Guys, unfortunately we found that there is no way to solve the VIVID launcher + PX6 non-vivid ROM steering wheel next skip two songs issue. Reason is non-vivid rom handle steering wheel inside once, and vivid launcher handle once. But non-vivid rom handle don't handle radio and bt music, so if vivid launcher don't react to steering wheel, then radio and bt music won't go next or previous. The ROM mechanism is kind of hacking but HCT is not gonna change.

So suggestion is using vivid rom to avoid that cause in vivid rom we disable rom handle when vivid is playing etc.

But I guess you are not using vivid rom now for a reason, if possible, let us know what's need improve~ Thanks

Saying "there is no way to solve ____" says a lot about the skill level of the software developer(s). Seems to me that it really comes down to process/environment awareness upon receipt of the steering wheel messages.

Why couldn't Vivid have a mechanism that detects the combination of ROM/launcher and if it determines that it is on a stock ROM instead of Vivid ROM then conditionally choose to react to the steering wheel controls? It would also seem that Vivid launcher could have some conditional parameters it could examine in the ROM version vs the Google Play installed version which helps make the detection of the operating environment easier to figure out.

Music pausing has been fixed via hot fix.

Problems seems I have to go to local and back to Bluetooth to have it work.


Feature which I'd like to see added below
Move favorite radio stations to top instead of recently played
Would be nice to swap music/maps on home screen.
Or to remove one entirely.
Needs a scion logo
Have the status bar/quick app hide
Maps would be nice to have it look more like official Google maps not showing houses and ect which should improve performance.
Ability to move/swap quick list apps
A developer option to allow experimental features like suggested above.

1. Move favorite radio stations to top instead of recently played -- sounds reasonable, will do
2. Would be nice to swap music/maps on home screen.Or to remove one entirely. -- can you explain more of your need for dashboard?
3. Needs a scion logo -- what's scion?
4. Have the status bar/quick app hide -- that's big changes, need more discusstion
5. Maps would be nice to have it look more like official Google maps not showing houses and ect which should -- you mean zoom out a bit?
6. Ability to move/swap quick list apps -- in the coming release on next monday
7. A developer option to allow experimental features like suggested above -- will consider
Thanks for all your feedback

Thanks for challenging. I'd say it's all because HCT rom issue. We do have the ability to disable canbus reaction in vivid or enable it. For example if we disable canbus reaction in vivid in non-vivid rom, music all will be fine cause system will handle next/previous automatically. But radio and bt music will not, you'll lose the ability to control those two, because HCT ROM will not consider these two as media service inside system. The you may find maybe we can disable canbus reaction if we are music playing, enable it when vivid is playing radio or bt music, that's nice, when in play radio, vivid handle canbus, but the system also handle the last media service in device, spotify for example, so that will cause uncertain behaviors.

Answer is so long, but please trust we'v already goes very far and tried hard before we can say unfortunately. Thanks for your support and feedback

I think vivid launcher is a temporary solution to a full vivid rom..
Patching the HCT rom is nonsense if you can have full control over an own ROM.
Bt media and radio are controlled by mcu (mcu sound) while the rest of sound by android..
The way in which this should be addressed is by to route the mcu sound to force be recognized by android as android media and everything be controlled by android system.
I encourage you to follow developing the full vivid ROM as it is THE WAY.

4) scion is a toyta off brand car manufacturer (I have a frs)
5) yea as my normal maps doesn't show any houses and seems to bug out alot when turning

Thank you for your detailed response and well said. I suppose the shorter answer is that you could properly handle the steering wheel controls in the Vivid apps/processes (e.g. media player, etc) but the bigger challenge/problem is when it involves 3rd party media apps like Spotify and others.

We are doing a ROM as well, but not publishing here cause we get no enough resources to support compatible issues with all kinds of devices. You can it get from Dasaita.

I have just upgraded to latest vivid rom and upgraded the launcher to the latest....
Spotify álbum art is now shown in the media player
Steering wheel works as intended for local/radio/spotify
I haven't tried the valet parking option.

Very well done guys with your last version.

Just a thing:
For.my case of Mazda cx5 ....why only model 2017 is available when no headunit is ready for mazda cx5 2017? At least dasaita sells unit compatible with 2012-2015 cx5
Perhaps you have to change that particular model and align with the ones that are sold by the manufacturers

Features I would like to see if possible.

1. Ability to add an image of your car in the car settings. Every time I add my car it doesn't seem to save under other.
1a. Have some obd11 data under this section of vivid, or link to an obd11 data app listed as default? ( this could be labelled " Car Data" or something generic like that)
2. To be able to map steering wheel buttons to specific apps. IE have a button, for navigation default app, ( this is in steering wheel controls but I mention it to understand the concept. ) assign a button for torque and which ever music app assigned as default or not. I sometimes use spotify or sometimes use power amp, for flac stored on the unit.
3. in steering wheel controls, having the button that scrolls through apps ( i think it is mode) only use a user selectable list of apps. Currently it opens a heap of apps that may not be used. including a music app, tv app, Dvr app etc.
4. Have wifi stay connected to hotspot, even when going from Zlink and back to vivid launcher.

As far I know zlink requires that the unit started Hotspot for wireless carplay/android auto...so keeping wifi connected to the phones wifi will.lead to never connect to zlink


The correct behavior should be an option of the behavior of zlink:
If automatic keep as it is
If manual only when opening zlink force the units Hotspot wifi started but when exiting zlink then avoid autoreconnect zlink again by forcing Hotspot from unit be disconnected

    You are using vivid launcher only right? that's the conflicts of vivid launcher and ROM mechanism, no easy fix, still working on that. hopefully after two releases (1 month later maybe)
    I've noticed that it's already fixed. Thank you so much!

    Lovely Launcher , what are the minimum Android version specs ?
    Android M :D

    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

    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.

    VIVID is a personalized launcher to offer best experiences while you're driving. It's designed neatly and beautiful, intuitive and easy to use. Here are the major features you're going to find out in VIVID:

    * Split home screen - It applies a split home screen for the most important 2 features while you're driving, Maps and Media, so that you don't have to jump back and forth among apps. And you can also easily access to the recent apps from the bottom bar.

    * Navigation - Google Maps, Waze, Amigo, iGo, no matter what navigation apps you're using, once you used it, it will stay at the bottom bar as your default Maps app.

    * Media - Highly customized UI for in-vehicle scenarios, and it's compatible with any standard media browse services, e.g. DAB-Z.

    * Phone - Integrated with HCT and ums512_1h10_Natv Head Units, and highly customized UI for phone calling, it's simple and easy to use!

    * Hardware Integration - Integrated with HCT and ums512_1h10_Natv HUs, you can use native radio and Bluetooth call, music

    * OTA update - Continuously improve and listen to user feedback, new release is bi-weekly or monthly.

    The download link and release notes are in second floor blow in this post.

    For all the lovely people saw here so far:
    1. Your ideas matter: we want to here from you about your pain point using your headunit for now, features you want to have, services you want to connect to and what we haven't done good enough.
    2. Features we'll deliver in the several coming release:
      1. Dashboard layout switch
      2. Google assistant certain level support (voice nav, music control, dial etc.)
      3. Your suggestions
    3
    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

    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.
