As you can see, opinions are divided :) For me launcher and rom VIVID with this layout is ok. The view of this car at a speed that occupies most of the screen is an exaggeration and in my opinion unnecessary information as you have the car's desktop in front of you. Gentlemen from TEEM VIVID should stick to their visions, improve and add options for their work. Of course, this is my opinion and I respect the opinion, the view of other.

So they can also correct the Thai version because people will love it too. And it will always be an additional new version that will have something different. One likes the original, dear version with only tiles, and still others can enjoy the next one :) So I strongly encourage the men from the VIVID team to create such a theme for us. Regards

Hi, firstly I have to say what a great looking launcher. :cool::cool::cool::cool:
Trying to get my bluetooth and radio to work but no luck.
It's an Erisin ES8129D DSP 8-Core Android 10.0 Head unit, has a Rockchips PX5 1512MHz Cortex A53 cpu.
Any idea if it's possible with this unit, the DABz works a treat with it.
Thanks for any help.

Are there any plans to port the app to FYT (UIS7862) devices at some point, so the phone and radio works? All the other features work great. I mean, the FYT community is huge and the current head units are top notch. I would pay for that as well.

Hi there, thank you for keeping this under active development it is a really great launcher. I have a feature request:
Selection of media source on start up
This could let you override the default (last used source) for a specific source, for example always set to Bluetooth input.

In this example the phone will be the primary audio source while apps like Spotify will get media preference only when launched.

Just a suggestion

so if I set the navigation app something different than Google Maps or Waze the Google maps navigation widget shortcuts don't launch?
This should be consider a bug, the shortcuts should call for Google maps no matter what the navigation is set to since they are on the Google maps widget.
Yes, widget should launch any nav app you use(which is show 2nd place in bottom bar). If you have the issue, should be bug. Please provide which nav app and your vivid version.

maybe like this the color of this blue with pink is very nice and fits nicely. In addition, the graphics of the car and the counter do the job. The mape with navigation could be placed permanently in the eye as it is now in vivid. Side keys assigned to the main menu etc. Bottom keys for selecting an application. I think many people would like such a theme

Thanks for feedback. Lots of users are asking this, but we are not sure how many platform FYT has, anyway we have a plan right now, could be in vivid in the future.

Thanks for suggestion. But I am not quite clear about your user scene, can you explain a little bit more?

I uploaded a video replicating the issue on my post. Latest Vivid release.
Checked your video. I'd say that's a design issue. Vivid home/work/search now only support google and waze cause we integrate certain api to do that. In vivid we have a 'main map' concept that means the map app you use on the 2nd place of bottom bar. If you are using Magic Earth, if click home/work vivid goes to google map, that looks like a bug as well. Very interesting feedback, thanks. We will consider to improve those functions to make it clearer.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    ;)
