It could be lot of people....but vivid team only could.integrate devices in
collaboration with the corresponding head units developers....if developers don't want...no integration is possible
Thanks man for your support. Anyway, @pskopylov that headunit is FYT supplier right? we are trying to find ways to support radio, bt for that headunit, please stay tune~

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.
Hi guys, really happen you guys like vivid, that's our honor. 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~

after the latest update, there is still a weather bug
Sorry for that, we actually fix that in the release. But after 1 day, we found out that for that issue, google map fee and weather fee cost several hundreds of USD a day lol... we have to limit that temporarily. Will find better ways to do that, sorry for inconvenient.

I may have discovered a small bug:

I get into the car and Vivid automatically starts the last media (e.g. DAB-Z or Spotify), so far so good. Now when I want to skip the station or a song by using the button on my steering wheel, nothing happens. I always have to open the app properly (Spotify, DAB-Z, etc.) by clicking on the music widget of Vivid on the right and the music app comes to foreground.

After that, skipping tracks/stations works again with no problems in background until I leave the car again for a longer period of time. No idea if this is a bug from the Vivid launcher or from my headunit after all, but with other launchers I have no such a problem. Thx

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.

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!

wow~ sorry I missed @pheff questions,
1. OK google to call contacts, we'v tested a lot, some of the PX6 devices work, but some are not. We found out that's related to something about google voice. We are taking different ways with MTCdialer, MTCdialer only use google voice asr to translate voice to text, then hard mapping the contact information. But our way using google voice nlu for better contact recognition as well. But pity not working on some devices... You guys can try MTCdialer for your convenient. May be in the future, we can try adapt that way as well.
2. That's something we miss in the test cycle. We found develop did a storage migration but obviously there is bug inside. Then the customize cannot work issue, will check ASAP.

@vivid_1,
is it possible to make the widgets on the home page a bit more variable, for example that I can delete some of them?

Is it possible that you do that we can remove the apps at the bottom (for example the Home-Button)?

Thanks a lot!
1. yes, delete widgets and re-add is on plan~ pls stay tune
2. remove the apps will be considered, and bottom bar scrollable will be available at first to complement

Hi Guys,
@pheff

    Hi Buddies,

    I'm sorry to inform you that VIVID new release development will be on hold for about two months(current plan) because we ran into a serious resource limitation.

    We have several bad bugs in latest release now:
    1. Radio customization issue. (bug, suggest use version 5.6.3418 which was ok)
    2. Weather not show for some users. (Not all users, no fix so far)
    3. Home/Work search not working. (Ran out of google api fee budget)

    Other things should be all ok.

    I will be here for questions and feature requests every now and then in the period. Will let you know when we are back into normal cycle.

    Thanks for all the support and favor upon VIVID~ Enjoy safe drive~
    I am very sorry that such a good project slowed down the 😞 I believed that now everything will fly downhill. Maybe you need to do it for a fee to support the project. I would be in favor. Thank you again for your wonderful and successful workm

    @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.

    * 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!

    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.

    ;)
