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.

Vivid is the same base unit from Dasaita. Only a new launcher, Vivid. It's fare from finished with lots of bugs and under-developed functions. Fixed screen on the main display, i.e. only radio/player on the right side. Only Google navigation on the left side. Sure you can have Waze as usual as an app, but not on the Vivid-screen.

I thought it was a new development, but it's not. Just a new launcher.

Use your old unit and install the launcher if you like it. Don't buy a new unit like I did. Or use the new FW suppose to be released Oct. 25 with Vivid included.

There's a main problem with the GPS-signal, reported by more than one person. It takes ages to get a GPS-signal. My old unit, basically the same unit without Vivid, no GPS problem.

*Some bugs:
- When you set "Pause" to the Steering Wheel, it doesn't work with Music Media outside of the menu, meaning the music doesn't pause when that button is pressed. But for Video app it works perfectly. In the previous version it worked but in this version it doesn't anymore.

- I'm testing Dasaita's Vivid Rom but don't know of any way to set up the Auto Light/Dark on system. When I choose Follow System it not switch when I turn on or off headlight.
-----------------
*Require additional function:
- Icons in the menu can be sorted by preference.

- Bottom bar allows apps can be pinned (Doesn't change when using another app). What I mean is to be able to enable the hardpin option, not to remove the "Show recently used apps" function.

- Is there any way to make the map on the left side outside the main menu support adding offline maps? Because when driving, the internet is not always available to update and load the map. The map keep re-loading after startup.

-------------
* Bugs fixed in the previous version:
- Steering Wheel move forward or backward music twice has been fixed.
- The search map window on the left no longer scrolls up after startup.

1. "pause issue" we'll see
2. next release, system day/night change will be changed based on system time (headlight based will be considered in the future)
3. bottom bar pin is in plan, btw, do you want the 'show recently used"?
4. that's system split screen support, planed in future release, but split may be manually
about new release changes, pls see the release note I attached today.

About the bottom bar pin app. I mean I don't like the "show recently used" function. But without having to remove that function. Just add an option to Settings to customize whether that function is ON or OFF. I just like to Pin some apps I want to show in the bottom right bar.

Would you mind to try with other external media player like poweramp?
I found with scout system (an alternative to vivid for the US market developed by other team from.the same company) that for spotify it skipped 2 songs ...but with poweramp rwd/fwd button changed to the prev/next playlist and not prev/next song

Add to bugs found. This is true cause this is something vivid conflicts with ROM behavior, in the ROM version we fix this by adding some ROM api, but for launcher version, there is bug which ROM not supported . We'll try to find if there is other solution for launcher case

    I think this issue is related ti the sunset/sunrise times....it seems it is not being updated to the timezone and the theme is being changed based on sunset/sunrise times from China
    Thanks and we have already found the root cause. We will fix in next release.

    Great Info!
    And please, could you look if you can integrate the Dasaita DAB APK v1.38, into the Home-Music app?

    PS - Is there any way to reconfigure a button on my wheel?

    The "MODE" button cycles between some integrated apps, like some Music Player, Video Player, Reverse Camera, Front Camera etc.

    I just want to make it a "play/pause" button.

    The "mute" button works, but sometimes i dont want to mute it, just to pause it, or just start the playback, so i dont have to touch the screen to press "PLAY/PAUSE".

    Thanks!
    Hi there,

    are you using can bus or swc?

    The below video might be usefull for you switching from can to swc.

    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.
