1. Please release new version with fixing issue: Music Player, when I move forward or backward the song using the Steering Wheel button, it jumps Twice.

2. Song list sort by randomly between "Name file" and "Song name". Hopefully you add with 2 options for sorting it.

3. Please remove the feature that the left-screen (MapView) keeps pulling up every time the launcher start.

4. For the right-screen (Music Player), add buttons switching between Local, Bluetooth, and Radio above Music Player instead of forcing access in the app.

5. Let's improve the ability to switching between Day and Night theme smoothly.
Thanks for advice. Those are gonna be fixed step by step.
1. We are investigating on this, are you using a vivid launcher or deprecated vivid ROM or others?
2. Will plan to do
3. Will be fixed in next release
4. Now the switching button happens in media page, not in dashboard right-screen
5. Any suggestion for day/night change, plan to do change per system time

I am using vivid Rom provided as stock by Dasaita....not the one published on forums.
Vivid is updated to the latest version available

What is the difference between a full vivid rom and hct rom+vivid launcher?
You mean you are using Dasaita prebuilt vivid ROM? weird though, should already handle the 3rd party key control issue

Day and night themes is more reasonable to be changed based on the car light status

I'm using this launcher on another Android Head Unit by Teyes, not a Dasaita or PX5/PX6 system. Am I limited to the amount of apps integrated to the launcher? I don't have the Radio app feature integrated into the launcher media panel. Is this because I'm not using the Vivid rom? Am I able to have the Radio APK for it? If so, will it work on my system or does it have to be HCT PX5 PX6?

I noticed that you have a vivid app store is that right? I was looking up Dasaita android head units and noticed it in their promos.

Thanks

Vivid ROM and VIVID launcher (and Scout based ROMs) are only for MTCD units (at least initially as the authors said).
Vivid rom are only distributed per authorized manufacturer (like Dasaita and others).
Scout based ROM is only distributed by Dasaita

Do you plan to customize the home screen, namely the addition and selection of the necessary widgets. For example, I'm not very comfortable using the map widget, it would be interesting to put a speedometer or something like that there. More settings for the launcher itself. And further. I do not use music applications (only via bluetooth) and the music icon on the bottom panel is useless, but I cannot remove it. Anyway, thanks for awesome launcher

We need integrate with headunit radio and bt api to make integrated radio and bt work, we are not working with Teye now, so VIVID can only be used as a launcher. You can still use Teye prebuilt radio app and bt app etc. Any suggestion will be welcome

Thank you for the answer. Could you fix the text issue on the media panel?

Thanks for advice, plan do some improvement about map in the future.
1. About "replacing the phone app completely", why? can you describe in detail?
2. steering wheel not working? you mean next twice or not working at all? what device do u use?

I see that there are a lot of suggestions for improvement or change. I think it would be convenient for users, including you, vivid_1, to make something like a document in which to describe the features that are planned. Users will be aware of what to expect and will not have to write about any problem or improvement that has already been announced

As far as I know...joying units are not MTCD ones...it is not fair that you could be reporting bugs over a non supported unit.

    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

    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.
