Great Module! Congratulations!
One suggestion: Please, can you add the option of "Execute action in the CAR screen"? The idea is: add one entry in this "unused" menu for trigger a Broadcast Intent; this intent then will be captured and processed by another App (like Tasker, AutomateIt, Llama, etc.)
Here some guide about "Broadcast Intent": http://inchoo.net/dev-talk/android-d...from-activity/
For the "Car Screen" see: http://arstechnica.com/cars/2015/07/...r-integration/
I hope you agree!
EDIT: Upon further investigation, it seems that this isn't doable right now. Those entries under the "Car" screen are services that have to be defined in the manifest. AFAIK, you can't inject service entries (and their associated metadata tags) into an app via Xposed. I think at some point, Google may open up that restriction for OEMs, and allow them to just apply a specific xml description tag to indicate that a particular app can be shown/used in that screen.
I can try and see if I can hook the layout inflation of those entries, and modify their titles there. I can also try and override what they currently launch (right now, just demo screens).
In reference to the limitations: Then I suggest to just hook the button for selecting the CAR screen. I feel this can be possible, and we use this event to trigger some intent. Please, think that sending one intent is by far more simple that printing on the screen. So, perhaps the first goal can be hook the AA UI for sending events to other Apps. You agree?
