    VL1 custom launcher

    Long time no see everyone !
    Been busy with side things for a long time, finally decided to return to CarPC thing. In a new incarnation.
    This time Android way. Hardware is ready and now working on custom launcher and media interfaces.

    So here the launcher (DashLinQ):
    Main screen:


    WebRadio


    Spotify


    Please use this link to download Beta version:
    https://play.google.com/apps/testing...audio.dashlinq

    Would love to hear back any feedbacks or comments

    Looking good so far, but can you please keep in mind a portrait mode for guys like me who just thought 7 or 8" landscape tablet wasn't enough . We instead went for the 10.5" or 12" portrait mode .
    For media: please if possible integrate music & video, or just add mx player intergration since it does both very well. Some of us like to watch family during traffic jams, so no road rage
    Navigation:waze, google maps, sygic
    Internet radio: tune in, iheartradio etc etc

    The functionality you mention is a part of application link. Launcher will have ability to display widgets 2*1 or 1*1 during browsing. So you won't miss that info. But once you found the app you what (DashComand or similar), it will be up to up to display whatever you what. I do not think I will have much control over it.

    This interface targets the existing factory screens found in cars these days. And I'm not aware of any car make that has portrait yet (Tesla is an exception).

    For now we will only integrate music resources. local music, remote stick/storage, iphone/ipod connected (bluetooth/usb). android (bluetooth/usb), personal radios (aka spotify/iheartradio), streaming radios (tunein/radiotime).

    Will see on navi apps. Most of them are not very optimized for car usage. Especially using knobs and buttons.
    Will post media interface later this week.

    I'm interested to check this out. Will it have a floating icon to get back to the main screen?
