Well I fixed a lot but basically y re wrote a lot of thing, the app will look similar but internally I modified for the next changes would be easier or at least better,I couldn't improve that much with the current code I have a working new version I need some test but i guess I can upload to the play store beta today

Hey, so having an issue where upon bluetooth disconnect (and power disconnect) the phone returns to whatever other App is active, but Car DashDroid never closes.  The only way for me to close it is to activate that screen again, then hit backspace and confirm.

Hey, I'm wondering what your privacy policy is concerning this app? I can't seem to find your privacy policy. I've looked at other car dashboard apps and they collect phone call, sms etc. information. What about this app?

Hi ZeN KuN

I enjoy your app. Please let me just request - I believe - a minor and easy modification.

By default, your app does not behave as a Android launcher app, that is an alternative app for pressing home button on the phone. You built in option to allow your app to become launcher when it's running and to make make it default launcher right after system boot.

This causes problems to Tasker/Locale applications, which people use for automating tasks. Tasker, together with propper plugin, can set and change the default launcher app, without user having to confirm dialogs about default app.

This functionality is hampered by the fact your app is not marked as alternative launcher for the whole time of the system run, but only when it is running. Then the prompts to confirm change of default launcher pop up each time launcher is changed and Tasker/Locale lose the ID of the launcher, because it changes every time.

Is it possible to modify your app in a way it is ALWAYS recognized by system as alternative launcher, no matter whether car dashdroid is running or not? That would be a great improvement. Thanks a lot :)

+1 for having this functionality. I've been using cardashdroid for over a year and now I've just switched phones / upgraded android version, I really don't want to have to reconfigure auto-input to have to achieve this kind of thing. Please could you consider adding a 'Tasker mode' option in preferences for those who know what they're doing and can add functionality on top?

Hey n3z,

I would have a request for a new function in your App CarDashDroid, which I am a great Fan of.
It would be great, if you could add a function/short Cut to Switch off the screen, because I can't reach my powerbutton when my new Phone is Sitting in the carmount.
Thanks in advance!

I have my phone paired to my head unit through bluetooth. Does car dashboard dial through bluetooth? I get no carrier when dialing.

Hi, I signed up as a beta tester. I had the app installed on the phone but I never received the update to the beta version. As
I use Whatsapp a lot to communicate with family I am interested in testing this part of the beta version.
How can I force the Beta download to my phone?

Please excuse what may seem like stupid questions, but I'm having no success in getting 'Car Dashdroid' to work for me!

1. I assume I just install the app on my mobile phone yes / no?
2. Mobile is running Android V5.1 Lollipop and is a MotoG 4G 1st GEN
3. Trying to link it with my Pumpkin Head Unit in car which is running Android V4.4.4 KitKat, but nothing appears on screen?!!??
4. Bluetooth is enabled on both and is working fine. Can use the mobile for making calls and play music through the Pumpkin.

I just don't get the 'Car Dashdroid' screen on the mobile mirrored on my Pumpkin unit!

Can anyone take list step by step instructions on how I need to set things up, please?

Or is it just a simple case of the Pumpkin unit's version of Android not being supported? Have looked at the 'Read More' section on Google Play for 'Car Dashdroid' but can't find anything stating which versions of Android are supported.

Thanks
Graham

P.S. Just suddenly had a thought, am I expecting this app to 'mirror' to another device, when it's not designed for that at all? ;-). It provides a simple interface (home screen) for use on your mobile and that's it?

Ante todo gracias por este gran programa, hablo en español porque el desarrollador creo que me va entender mejor así que con mi pobre ingles.
Utilizo la app como launcher en una radio android con resolución 1024*600 y con esa resolución veo alguna cosa que se podría optimizar, también me gustaría poder personalizar mas los iconos de la pantalla principal tanto la imagen como el texto.
Retocar un poco el diseño del widget tanto del reproductor como de la hora/fecha para adaptarlo a esta resolución.
Otras cosas que me gustarían pero no veo ni mucho menos tan fundamentales (le daría 6 estrellas a la aplicación si se pudiera xD) son:
- Que el icono del tiempo al pulsarse nos diera una predicción de unos días, solo la predicción del tiempo que hace en el momento no tiene mucho sentido ya que solo con mirar por el parabrisas ya ves que tiempo hace.
- Tener una opción en el protector de pantalla para que no baje la intensidad de lo que muestra y poder mostrar la información del contenido multimedia que se reproduce en el momento.
- Mas personalización en fondos y colores, quizás la posibilidad de configurar el numero de iconos de la pantalla principal de 4 a 5 o 6 (una opción no que obligue a hacerlo).

Gracias por la app es justo lo que buscaba algo sencillo y claro sin perderse en mostrar demasiada información mientras se conduce. Un saludo.

Hey there. So I really like this app and would love to buy the premium version, but for some reason the dialog just doesn't come up. Background info:

S7 Edge on AT&T
6.0.1
Not Rooted, so stock software
Using the beta version of the app and it is up to date

I was able to get it to work by uninstalling the beta. I left the beta group and install the original app and then it worked

Hello first congrats for the app great work. I downloaded the app a week ago or so and I've been testing the app, also I just subscribed to the beta tester program.
I would like to make some suggestions but also consider as requests:

* Option to set the default Navigation and Music window as Active Screen so it can be accessed with a swipe.
Its easier and safer to do 1 or 2 swipe top than focus on a tiny back button

* Make the voice command icon visible in every screen not just Main Screen AND also Tasker/Automate friendly so advanced users can for example trigger the integrated voice commands from a BT headset button EVEN when Car Dashdroid is in the background while using e.g waze in the foreground.
The less manual interaction and swipes the better :).

I think an Easy To Spot rounded floating or static icon would be the best approach to this so user can move it to preferred position either left or righ or remain static in the top center of the screen. The idea is to reach the Search button in a safer, faster and easy way (saves the swipe(s) to access Main Screen just for that too).

* It would be nice that when an incoming call is answered Car Dashdroid send a back out intent or put it in the background so navigation can continue without user interaction.

* Replace the Dialer Active screen which is not safe to use while driving for an enhanced Contacts view with 2 tabs Favourites | History (All) and a dialer button at the bottom. This can eather replace Dialer Active Screen or Contacts button in Main Dashboard screen, no need to have both!.
SEE SCREENSHOTS BELOW...

* Last but not least: aesthetics... material design.

I see that Car Dashdroid has done a great work supporting Waze for what its possible to do with it as of now (IMO Waze lacks many basic must have features) BUT it could still do more while in backgroud.
I know that the ideal thing would be to swipe to left or right from Main Car Dashdroid screen to access waze inside and overlay or whatever but its just not possible :(.

I often use Waze for navigation as most users do and I've though about all this improvements very well based on heavy usage and the fact that my Car Tablet Mount holder is in the middle back of my car's front panel (not that close to the wheel) and that I use a smartphone screen not a 7"+ tablet/phablet.

Nice feedback, you can choose direct dial in favorites, using three dot menu and select the call action, in contacts, about background, you are right,I guess a overlay very similar to Facebook chat had would be perfect for maybe voice commands or return back to the app,I like that idea, the call idea is nice however is not easy to know if you are on navigation or not,I have the option to launch my app after the call finished, and I'm sorry I didn't get the material design point

Hello everybody, I have the problem on my Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0 3G (T1-701U) wirth the 4.4.2 stock rom and Emui 3.0. When I open a application group on Car Dashdroid the app opens automatic the keyboard to edit the title. So it's diffcult to use the application groups.
Has someone the same problem?

Suggestion: Allow custom icons like third-party launchers (e.g., Nova). I love that I can choose an icon pack in Car Dashdroid, but I use a couple of alternative icons provided for in the icon pack in Nova. Will Car Dashdroid allow this customization at some point in the future?

Thanks for the great app.

Hi,
I've been evaluating this app and so far, I've enjoyed using it. I noticed that when I get a text message, I get a notification from the Android system, and a duplicate one from Car Dashdroid overlaying it (or vice-versa, not sure of the order in this case). Is there a way to prevent the system one while in the app? See screenshot below.

On a related note, I've also observed that TTS fails the first time, every time, after the app is launched. The first text I receive once the app is running fails to produce speech output when I get an SMS notification. Subsequent texts work fine.

Maybe TTS can be initialized somehow on app launch?

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Thanks!!!

Yeah I need improve text, basically in galaxy apps, stock apps does not have pop up sms messages, and yeah tts will be at launch so any sms our message should be easier to read
