Metrics settings missing?

Post by mladjan » Thu Jul 13, 2017 1:12 am

I don't see where to change to metric units. Is that is settings menu which I don't see? Im using latest version from google play store, on 7" android head unit in my car (never tried on phone because using iPhone).

All settings are found in the settings section (3 dots at the top). You can change the units for all the different readings there.

you are using a headunit not a phone.

you need to force it into portrait mode to see the 3 dots. there are apps that can do that

I tried everything and can't force it in portrait mode (this is how double din is made). I even asked manufacture and there is no way to force portrait mode.
Can you update the app please and put this button somewhere to be visible, please?

you have to go to the app store and download an app that can force it or if you headunit is rooted than you force it manually by

"modify your build.prop in /system.

You will find the line "ro.sf.hwrotation=0".
Change that to "ro.sf.hwrotation=90" or "ro.sf.hwrotation=270". "

root your head unit and modify your build.prop in /system.

You will find the line "ro.sf.hwrotation=0".
Change that to "ro.sf.hwrotation=90" or "ro.sf.hwrotation=270".

I will try, but its much easier for someone to move the button to another location (5min of work) and re-upload the app to Google Play store.

Would also love the ooportunity to Enterprise settings mode ob my Android headunit. Is there and Update?
Think there is still much space left for improvement ob the app - customized Designs, dashes like in torque etc.

Cheers
