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.

    Just like my responses above, we are trying to find ways to integrate with FYT devices, but we are not sure how the compatibility will be. IF apply, thanks for testing and feedback to us. Please post the issue so far, is welcome~
    Hi,

    attached is the spec for my FYT unit. I can confirm the following things in Vivid launcher are working:
    1. Bluetooth audio when connected to the phone.
    2. Phone contacts info and phone dialling via Bluetooth.
    3. Wallpaper changes and themes.
    4. audio playback from local storage.
    5. Google maps is working.
    6. Bottom row of apps can be launched, changed and arranged.
    7. Auto launch on start up (Navradio app) https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...s7862-and-sc9853i-fyt-devices.4387965/page-23
    8. Google maps directions by voice after clicking on the microphone icon.

    What isn't working
    1. Radio integration (I am using Navradio / Navradio free). Have just added this app to the bottom row.
    2. Spotify is not integrating. Have just added this app to the bottom row.
    3. If Navradio is auto launched and there was a previous version of the app already running, then sound on Navradio is lost.
    4. Weather widget is not working.
    5. Google Assistant is not working for phone dialling. This is an FYT thing. But I notice that AutoZen app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zenthek.autozen&hl=en_AU&gl=US has found a way to make Google Assistant work for voice dialling from within their app, so it is possible on the FYT units.
    Using Google maps with voice does work.


    I am happy to test and report findings of any specific questions you may have to assist you with FYT units.

    With Navradio, the original radio is renamed and the Navradio renamed as the original radio to offer integration into the ROM. This works seemlessly.

    After updating to the latest version that came out, I see everything worse... Also, something very important for me, I lost all the favorite radio stations with the image and the name that I gave it. I have returned to put image and text in each radio, but on the main screen they do not appear. Can you fix it @vivid_1?

    On the other hand, to use OK Google to call my contacts, do I need MTCdialer as a colleague says?

    Thanks for support
    Hi @vivid_1 could you please answer @pheff questions? I and some other users have noticed the same problems.

    1. Not working OK Google to call contacts. Should we install MTCdialer as it is mentioned by @jpdrm?

    2. After last update we lost all the favorite radio stations with the image and the name that we gave. Moreover, the logos and names customization is not working again.
    2
    I only use Vivid with the dark theme, but can you add an option that Google Maps widget is not automatically dark as well? That could be set separately. Thank you!
    That's possible, we can add one map theme toggle in the setting in the future.

    Hi Guys,
    @pheff

    We'v tested older version to update with several versions, cannot reproduce the radio customizable miss and not working issue, do you guys now still reproducible? and any clue can give me? or can help to report a bug for us?

    In the previous version there was no problem. You customized the radios and they were selected. Now, you customize them and when you turn off the radio, they are lost...

    In addition, even when you customize text and image and have not yet turned off, the home screen does not show neither text nor image
    2
    I don't think it's necessary to be so rude. is the official post of Vivid Launcher... which by the way is the best launcher I've tried for my unit, that's why integrity with other radio applications is requested. You don't have to talk like we're doing something wrong.
    I wasn't rude....perhaps you were annoyed as the answer was not the one you expected. I just explained why integration is not made on many devices....but you always can ask the manufacturer of your device to talk to vivid team to help them to integrate your unit.

    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.

    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

    Right that's in plan. And we've look at that issue yesterday, we cannot add NavRadio/NavRadio+ into media list cause they did conflict with vivid radio, but in next release we'll actually try to let them working well with vivid launcher but cannot control by vivid launcher.
    Hi, I'm the developer of NavRadio+.
    I found that to make my app work with vivid launcher i need to add a mediaplayer service in my code so the launcher can properly give audiofocus to my app.
    Right now NavRadio start only a mediasession to send logo and radio infos but I'm working on adding the mediaplayer service to avoid these kind of problems, i just need to find the time and proper way to add it.
    In the while I can tell you some actions that could be usefull:

    The main NavRadio+ service is "com.navimods.radio.RadioService"
    The NavRadio_free service is "com.navimods.radio_free.RadioService"

    To start playing and gain audiofocus: "navimods_play_action"
    To stop the service: "navimods_stop.service"
    To switch to next station: "navimods_next_action"
    To switch to prev station: "navimods_prev_action"

    I hope this help a bit.

    If you need more infos, feel free to ask.

    ;)
