How to use the app?

USB Mode

  • Plug in the USB to your device (in case of tablet use an OTG cable), when prompted make sure you allow HUR to be the default app for the action and you check the always box.

  • If you are running the app on a device with Android 7.0 or higher, you might need to pull down the notification bar and select the connected USB device before the app starts (this is device dependent)

  • If the app does not start automatically when you plug in your phone, you can always open HUR, tap the USB button and select the phone from the list.

Wifi Mode & Wifi Direct
Please read detailed information here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=68037310&postcount=2

Self Mode (when Android Auto and HUR are running on the same device)

  • Open Android Auto on the phone, go to Settings and tap the "Version" 10 times to become a developer

  • Once you are a developer from the 3 dotted right corner select Start Headunit Server

  • Close Android Auto

  • Start HUR

  • Select SelfMode

FAQ / Troubleshoot

All I get is a black screen
- If you are using an Android powered headunit (Joying, Xtrons, etc) look for a setting on your device which allows Video Playback during drive
- Try changing HUR settings and enable Software decoding

Compatible with: Joying, Eonon, Grom Vline, Xtrons, PX5 and PX3 units, A-Sure, RK3188 units, RK3066 units, Avin and other Android powered head units.

More FAQ, including hardware key support, intent support and others as well troubleshooting can be found: https://forum.xda-developers.com/general/paid-software/android-4-1-headunit-reloaded-android-t3432348

If you have any difficulties using the app, or you any support with it, you are always welcome to contact me.

The original idea was developed by the late MICHAEL READ.

Note to the dev: Thanks for continuing to support your app!!! The new UI is incredible and adds more of a "factory" look to the app. It runs smoother, faster and at a better aspect ratio. The graphics look tight and lags very little. I had a issue with USB not connecting on the old version. Wifi still worked so that was a plus. I plugged my phone in to charge after the update and found USB connection works again! Woo-hoo! I'm very impressed with the new look and overall functionality!

Dark theme is on the way and for torque Google obd2aa, you won't find it on play store but it's available on XDA labs. Install it on your phone alongside with torque and you will have the OBD2 as well.

Update: It turns out that the cheap USB C cable I was using was causing issues. Make sure to use a good quality cable. Phone connectivity is near perfect now. I do however frequently get a message box asking me if I want to use the USB device even after checking it off and tapping OK which is strange. Old: It worked at first, but it frequently freezes and results in my entire head unit freezing, causing me to have to restart it. If this issue is fixed I will update my review to give stars.

It's great! When it works. The first few days it worked great on my Dasaita android head unit running Android 10 but after a few days, whenever I plug in my Pixel 4 XL (Android 11) it connects, then the app closes, tries to connect again, closes and so forth. I thought it was my cable but I've tried it with multiple cables and the app keeps crashing. Is this something that can be fixed with settings or does the app need to be updated?
