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.
Waze don't provide any api for provide a mapview in another app(vivid), but in the future maybe headunit split window can meet your need, but that may need user action, thanks for suggest

Although you are not part of zlink...when using carplay (zlink) steering wheel is not working (when worked on previous hct firmwares without vivid) if pressing next song it is translated as next song in vivid and not in carplay and automatically switches audio to vivid

Edit....
This behavior occurs with any third party application.. the vivid music widget keeps as primary and steering wheel buttons only activate vivid music and not 3rd party app


Edit 2:
The issue is that sometimes ...the music control widget that overlays on any screen do not focus on the current 3rs parte app (like spotify) and never on zlink

If you were playing something fron bluetooth and changes to vivid 3rd party app (like spotify) sometimes it randomly goes back to bluetooth music (without pressing anything)

I had to uninstall vivid because of this issue. For those with android auto or carplay, we need a seamless experience where vivid just fades to background like the stock launcher.

I have to say, this launcher is the best car launcher I have ever used on an Android Head Unit! Well-done! I only have 2 feature requests:

1. Can you make an option to disable the floating Home and Music control button if we don't need it? In some apps it can be quite distracting.

2. Can the Maps section for google maps be more in line with showing live turn-by-turn navigation to be exactly how it works with the Google maps app? Also, when searching for an address it doesn't find anything. Bug?

Thank you.

love this launcher but would love to be able to customize it more and also would love to use Waze and Spotify as the 2 main apps on the home screen or option to change the main apps on the home screen would be a great idea

If only use vivid launcher, this is happening, then it's a bug, we'll try to reproduce and fix in the future

wow, thank you very much, this inspire us to keep moving forward.
for feature1, yes, will plan in future release
for feature2, not showing turn by turn is because google map don't provide this function for 3rd party. Searching in app is bug, will fix in later release

If you mean add waze into the domain bar in the bottom, yes we can, you can just open waze map, then waze icon will replace google as shortcut. If you mean replace the left side map view, we cannot now cause waze don't support that

When trying to.put a direction on main screen the keyboard is blocked with a message that typing while.driving is not allowed. In my case the car was parked. Is it a bug? Is there any way to enable keyboard typing?
that should be a bug, we'll try to reproduce and fix it in the future

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.

    So I would just like the icons across the bottom and nothing else. No Google maps window, no music window and maybe just a large clock where the maps and radio windows are
    Fries with that

    @vivid_1 what about the integration between vivid launcher and navradio+?
    2
    Hey @vivid_1 I reported this same bug some time ago, did you guys have any plan to fix it in the next update?

    Apart from this one, there is another bug that makes me to push several times the next/previous button in the steering wheel to change the radio station; it's quite random, since sometimes is ok pushing it once, but others you have to push it 2 or 3 times to change the radio station. My unit is PX6 MAX10.

    Thank you!
    What I recommend vivid team is to create one post .... "Issues/bugs found" (that vivid team should update accordingly) with the list of the issues (and version in which the issue/bug was found) that captured to be fixed from the users and with estimation on which release they think the issue could be fixed...in order the users could consult and provide information or other new bugs and not ask for the same issues.
    We know vivid team is suffering from lack of developers and we appreciate the effort for giving to us a full attractive and functional launcher.

    Install other launcher.
    So you are asking to remove all the functionalities that are attractive from vivid. Change to card theme if that fits better to you....if not...check which other launchers can fit your needs.

    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.

    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.

    ;)
