Test of version 7.0.x for Android

    Android Auto support
    Since Google opens the support for 3rd party navigation applications, we have implemented Android Auto extension for vehicles equipped with such kind of modern technology. There is only few prerequisites - Android Auto application installed on your smartphone running Android 6 or above, and using a high quality USB cable to connect your phone to your car. Keep in mind the official release on Google Play is available in countries listed in https://www.android.com/auto/ - Is the Android Auto app available in my country? but don't be worry, it can be fetched in any other alternative source on the Internet, and the official list is getting longer (https://blog.google/products/android/new-features-winter-2020/ 5. Android Auto expands to more countries). We are really excited about introducing Android Auto extension in MFN 7.0 (Android) for those of you who asked for this feature for a long time, offering you the best user experience as possible. As an explanation, there's one hadicap that most of users complain about - inability to move the map surface to any direction - this is NOT intended behaviour by MapFactor - it comes from Google library restrictions and we hope Google engineers will fix it in the near future.

    Coming soon: Speed limit sign, settings screen, bug fixing

    Available via download link and soon on Google Play Beta

  • Hi Filip,
    Is the invisible maps bug (new maps) for France corrected?
  • Hi filips,

    did you notice that there is a problem with actual OSMaps of most of France and UK (and probably more - did not check)?
    As you can read in https://forum.mapfactor.com/discussion/8930/france-map-and-update und see in the picture MacDony posted, only Brittany and Greater London Region are visible.
    Just checked 7.0.28 on BlueStacks emulator (Android 7) - problems remain.
    Checked 7.0.20 and 7.0.4 before - 7.0.4 is okay - 7.0.20 as well as 7.0.28 show the effects described by MacDony.

    Oh - MacDony was a bit faster ...

    Regards ...

  • Top, thanks.
    Just checked on BlueStacks (Android 7 Emu), all maps visible. Just downloading a few more parts of Europe to see if anything unexpected occurs.

    Will check on real Android 9 later.

  • Hi,
    On android auto ;)
  • Hello McDony, do you mean we may use the last version 7 accessible from 28th may with android auto ?
  • yes, you have to download the latest version with the link at the top.
    it works with android auto, but with the bugs that have been reported.
  • Hi,

    I'm not sure to understand the differences between 6.2.x, 7.0.x versions.

    Are 7.0.x versions just for android auto or work alone ?

    Then, on the play store I see Mapfactor (6.2.11) and Mapfactor Pro (6.2.14), I've seen the free vs pro on https://www.mapfactor.com/en/products/navigation-software-standard/navigator-android/#free-vs-pro
    but what is the fare of the car pro version, to compare with my free version + paid TomTom and pack of functions ?
  • V.7.0.x works with Android Auto. V.6 does not.
  • I guess it's the only difference ?
  • MFN v.7.0.31 on Samsung Galaxy S9 with Android 10. Problem of MFN crashing after disconnecting phone cable from vehicle still present. Minor errors with program exiting after setting route on Android Auto. Logs sent.

Howdy, Stranger!
