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
Thanks for your feedback and help all the way, we are keep improving. We did support model 2017, the model selection right now is only for naming show(for historical reason), we may want to support specific model can function in the future. So that should not be a problem, lol

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
Thanks, I will try again through zlink to see if I can find a workable solution. As it stands it is so frustrating when jumping from one to the other especially when driving. Here is Australia, it is illegal to touch your phone whilst driving unless it is afixed, which means pulling over to get the whole thing working again. It seems like I am doing something wrong, however what I would love is for it to just be seamless and connected when going from one to the other and back and forth etc. Even just a pop up to say wifi disconnected would you like to connect to such and such network would help me.

***Bugs issue:
1. Bluetooth music paused when press menu or open any app. Or using any app and press to comeback to home. It paused music. Sometime pause sometime not. Only happend on BT Music, Local Music work fine. I guess this is a bug.
-----
2. I like to hide vivid music widget, but in the previous version 4.11.3321, even set the widget was hidden, it would still slide down to show name song a few seconds when another song is switched. I like that, is it possible to restore the way it works like previous version?
-----
3. Cannot loggin by phone number.
---------------------------
***Suggestions:
1. Can you move the Bluetooth button to the home screen to look like this? It will be more convenient while focusing on driving. It will only take 1 touch to switch to Bluetooth instead of 2 actions in the current version.

I have updated to the Vivid Dec.06 2021 - 4.11.3327 version on my Max10 PX6 headunit. I am still NOT able to invoke split screen. I have long pressed the recents icon in the taskbar but it does not react. Only allows single press but dragging and dropping windows does NOT work either. Please advise if there is a setting that needs to be turned on to activate the long press function.

Could be this implemented on vivid launcher?
I don't feel that zlink team could add the automatic/manual option on their app as AFAIK their support is insignificant

Hi

Thanks for your feedbacks.
#1. Did you operate the app on your phone or headunit? We tried on the headunit when the phone was connected with BT to Headunit, but we did not reproduce the issue. Please provide your version and it is better to provide the video .

#2. We will consider to do this if possible

#3. We will try to reproduce this issue tomorrow.

For your suggestion, they are different concept, but we will consider to do this later.

Hi

Thanks and did you use the Rom which dasaita provided and only update the new APK? If yes, you should ask dasaita to update your rom. Only update the APK may not resolve your problem.

Best Regards

you guys should open a bug tracker were people can easily post bugs they find..and see which bugs have been fixed which haven't...instead of people having to browse hundreds of forum posts here on xda

and make it simple to post bug reports...use a captcha instead of forcing people to login to some new site

Can anybody explain why need speedometer on Home Screen? I assume we'v all get those information on Car Cluster?
@variosteph @Langthjem @exCat @KhangTran476 Thank u in advance
I like the homescreen to be an overview. The option to display my current GPS speed, without having navigation open, is something I'd find informational and useful. On the other hand; I couldn't care less for weather widgets - I'm driving, not strolling through the country side.

    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

    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

    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.
