About this app

Headunit Receiver emulator for Android Auto.

Trial version of the app available on store listing, please use Trial version to test your device compatibility! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=gb.xxy.trial

Interested in Beta testing? Sign up to the beta channel: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/gb.xxy.hr

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.

Excellent app. The trial version didnt work for me but the paid version did. Ive been enjoying this now for several weeks. Note - If youre having issues getting the app to connect to your phone, go into the settings. There is an option to show a force connect button in the notifications. When it doesnt connect, just press that button...

Rarely if ever can I get this to connect any more. When it works, to it's incredible. For me, that's maybe a quarter of the time or less now, even though all my hardware and other software is unchanged from what used to work perfectly. I've finally given up altogether and am uninstalling this. I strongly advise not buying it, as the developer abandoned it over a year ago and has left it in beta status to prevent negative reviews without first having to leave the beta which most won't realize.

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.

What's new

- Removed WiFi Direct
- Improved menu UI
- Updated margin setting
- Added option to record audio using BT mic (motorcycle helmets)
- Added button to reconnect WiFi connection ( phone and unit depended won't work on all units, please read app forum for how to connect)
- Option to disable touchscreen
- Removed brightness adjustment (some users experienced problems adjusting brightness after using previous version, sadly they need to do a factory reset of the unit, and update to current version)
