May I suggest to remove the labels for the points of interest below the map. They do not fit on the field. I suggest a first row for poi balloons (without labels) ans second row for recent call list but only two letters based on name family name first letter (like Google does)

New issues:
1. Bluetooth music, when I using Steering Wheel to move forward or backward, BT Music switch back to Local Music.

2. BT Music sometime paused by it-self.
---------
I'm still annoyed with switch 2 times song when using Steering Wheel. Is it possible to make an option to turn off its signal so that it is not related to Canbus for Launcher Only user? I see every other launcher working properly but your launcher alone is the error like this.

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.
Got it, thanks for feedback

Monitoring the speed could be useful for implementing a variable volume algorithm according to speed. Once you are monitoring the speed...adding a globe over the map with the speed could be just an option
Yeah correct, the auto volume feature! Will planning in the future, thanks for support

Thanks for advice. Been considering this for a while, has some refine plan.
Question, do u use recent call on dashboard? do you flip up to use recent address?

sorry about this. "every other launcher working properly" can other launcher switch music, radio and bt all well, do they has integrated radio and bt or using the stocked apps?

Any way we will consider how to do a workaround, thanks for your patient.

Is there any way to get the music started when i start the car?
With the Max10 ROM the music starts and continues playing as soon as i start the car.
With the Vivid ROM, it takes 3-5min to start music playback.

The USB stick is the same:
64GB SanDisk Ultra Luxe, 150mb/s reading speed,
about 20gb of Music files.

This is what killes me every single day, and wishing to go back to Max10 just because of this.

Every time i start the car, i have the drive in silence for 3-5min, but a head-unit is not made to do this.
Every time it index the music files, every time - could you make a index file for every folder,
and ONLY re-scan the USB on demand, or when the ID of the USB changes?
And in the index file just make the index of every music file/folder, and when the car is started,
let the music play where the last time it stopped.

Please please please! Then it will be a perfect experience!

The bullet 2 is true and it happens as well within zlink (android auto) as for carplay/aa the audio comes by Bluetooth.

In the case of vivid rom the steering wheel just switches 1 song for each button pressing as intented

1) When peforming a whatsapp call from the phone...call can be Heard on the speakers but no call control appears on display. I remember that on stock rom the whatsapp call could be controlled and answered

2) many times I found a music app (the old stock one) opened when I start the unit from sleep. Are you using internally that media player? Or vivid uses a builtin media player? If so...why stock media players are being opened and displayed?

Another thing - all Music folders are shown as Folder Names, but its not ABC or by Number sorted.
Could you please add a Folder view? Like a Folder Tree?
Or enable sorting by Name, a Quick-Jump-To-Letter etc?
Thanks!

Hi,


Is there a way to disable floating home button. It is problematic to use carplay when it's showing all time on

Hello

Thanks for using our Product and raise your issue.
But could you help us to confirm:
1. whether the SanDisk was loading after you start the car?
2. Did you set the auto play in settings?
3. It is better to provide a video if possible.

Best Regards

    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.

    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.
