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.
Thanks for advice. Those are gonna be fixed step by step.
1. We are investigating on this, are you using a vivid launcher or deprecated vivid ROM or others?
2. Will plan to do
3. Will be fixed in next release
4. Now the switching button happens in media page, not in dashboard right-screen
5. Any suggestion for day/night change, plan to do change per system time

I am using vivid Rom provided as stock by Dasaita....not the one published on forums.
Vivid is updated to the latest version available

What is the difference between a full vivid rom and hct rom+vivid launcher?
You mean you are using Dasaita prebuilt vivid ROM? weird though, should already handle the 3rd party key control issue

Day and night themes is more reasonable to be changed based on the car light status

I'm using this launcher on another Android Head Unit by Teyes, not a Dasaita or PX5/PX6 system. Am I limited to the amount of apps integrated to the launcher? I don't have the Radio app feature integrated into the launcher media panel. Is this because I'm not using the Vivid rom? Am I able to have the Radio APK for it? If so, will it work on my system or does it have to be HCT PX5 PX6?

I noticed that you have a vivid app store is that right? I was looking up Dasaita android head units and noticed it in their promos.

Thanks

Vivid ROM and VIVID launcher (and Scout based ROMs) are only for MTCD units (at least initially as the authors said).
Vivid rom are only distributed per authorized manufacturer (like Dasaita and others).
Scout based ROM is only distributed by Dasaita

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

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?

Thanks for advice, plan do some improvement about map in the future.
1. About "replacing the phone app completely", why? can you describe in detail?
2. steering wheel not working? you mean next twice or not working at all? what device do u use?

I see that there are a lot of suggestions for improvement or change. I think it would be convenient for users, including you, vivid_1, to make something like a document in which to describe the features that are planned. Users will be aware of what to expect and will not have to write about any problem or improvement that has already been announced

As far as I know...joying units are not MTCD ones...it is not fair that you could be reporting bugs over a non supported unit.

    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.
    Original post is here:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/app-launcher-vivid-best-launcher-for-driving.4308669/

    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
    2
    For FAQ: Please use latest version cause issues and feature requests may be fixed already. Constantly remove items which has already fixed.

    Feature in plan:
    • ScreenSaver which has lock PIN (for valet mode, car wash mode etc)
    • Sorting apps
    • Add app icon packages of other style
    Bugs found:
    • Bluetooth notification ducking music which is playing
    • Zlink(CarPlay) steering wheel control is not working (need more cases if any)
    • *Steering Wheel Buttons to move music backward and forward still skips 2 times the song. Rom no issue but I installed APK to Malaysk or Hal9k rom, this issue happened.
    Anything more please feel free reply

    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.
