VIVID is a personalized launcher to offer best experiences while you're driving. It's designed neatly and beautiful, and the most important is very intuitive and easy to use.

For people who used [VIVID ROM for MTCD] and [VIVID Launcher] before:

We found many hardware compatible issues when we want to deliver our product experiences through doing a ROM. So making a launcher is more general, will benefit more people. Although the launcher starts with simple features, has some limitations, may not meet all you need at first, but we want to keep improving, launch new features and start polls and listen to what you suggest in the forum.

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

  • ScreenSaver which has lock PIN (for valet mode, car wash mode etc)
  • Sorting apps
  • Add app icon packages of other style

Bugs found:
  • Zlink(CarPlay) steering wheel control is not working (need more cases if any)
  • CardLayout(beta dashboard) no phone UI when phone call coming

Is it planned to support more car manufacturer in future? E.g. i can't select my car (Seat Ibiza) right now. I guess it shouldn't be that hard to get this working, because other modells of the Volkwagen group are already implemented?

Thanks a lot!

Yes we'd like to; we have a 'other' options for input the Car which is not listed, did you try that? or what kind of function is not working for your (Seat Ibiza) maybe?

When the car is in service (or valet parking) google account data and private data could.be compromised. Could be a future option for blocking the access to the unit by means of pin code?

What is expected to do the specific car selection to do? Are you planning to get signals from canbus for specific functionalities?

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?

    Dasaita, they release new version of Vivid Rom today. I have tested and am quite impressed for this update. I love the map rebuild at left side. Launcher version is 4.10.3295. Can you update it to download? I want to APK only.
    Wow~ thanks. Will be on this forum page on Oct.25 on time. also you'll get ota update notification if you are already using vivid launcher right now.

    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
    Thanks for advice, adding more customization options is in plan, stay tune and more suggestion is welcome~

    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?

    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.
