    Hello kotix, with your room you resolved the problems with the bluetooth conection? I have very problems with this, because some times the phone and the radio don't conect by bluetooth and i have to conect manual. Sorry for my english. I'm from Spain and i have a s160 m062 Subaru Impreza. Thanks.

      Bluetooth issue may be related to bluetooth itself, unit doesn't search for Your phone all the time, also the phone doesn't do that either.
      This issue is mostly happening if You get back to Your car before the unit turns off completely, it doesn't appear if the unit boots completely after longer stops.
      I've resolved this issue using tasker, it is searching for the car and if it's detected then it performs connection.
      Works really good.

        Hello avatar, i want to buy tasker because this bluetooth don't go well never... Can you say me how to used tasker and calibrated the bluetooth please?? You install tasker in Your phone or in Your s160?? Your bluetooth allways go well with tasker?? Thanks for all


        • #5
          Tasker needs to be installed on the phone.
          you need to check with some intervals if device with bluetooth MAC xx:xx is available, if so, Connect.
          Download also secure settings from android market, You will use it in tasker to perform connection if the bluetooth device will be detected.

            The sound does not work well.
            With radio FM, the sound gps turn off.
            Gps with music correct but does not lower the sound music.

            Does not start gps when the s160 starts.

            Gps is correct in carsetting.

            i don't understand.

              I dont have these issues.
              make sure You have chosen correct GPS app in car settings - then radio wont turn off when notification kicks in.
              Music volume level and gps app notification is controlled by android and the way that navigation app sends its notification.
              ​​​​​​I dont understand what You mean by GPS doesn't start when unit starts. Unit always starts on last used app so if You used GPS app when it was turned off then it will start with this app turned on.


              • #8
                Yes i have correct gps app in car setting. My sound no work well.
                the s160 apk why is installed?

                  I'm trying to reproduce and find a solution for this problem. it will take some time... please be patience

                You mean s160keys.apk?
                now i have noticed that when i am using source button on my steering wheel at the switch input OSD only icons of s160keys appear instead of TV, radio, music,video etc. Apps.
                Can anyone check this?
                I have removed tv and ipod apps and maybe this caused this issue.

                  I can confirm this issue with swc menu showing all s160keys.
                  I'll discuss this with bonez.

                i also confirm The radio audio focus problem
                Damn roadnav have introduced this issue in the new 10/28 firmware... it does it in the original fw too!

                  Ok thank you


                  • #12
                    and the fix is coming!! yeah!!
                    you'll find it in the tests folder.

                    The quick fix is to copy wincaServer.apk in /system/app using rootexplorer or rootexplorer function of esfileExplorer or wifiadb and then change permissions to rw-r-r

                      now ok.
                      I have not tried it much, but it seems that everything is ok

                      thank you

                        I also can confirm, when radio FM is on, the sound from navigation forces the radio sound to level it's volume down, plays navigation sound/notification and then the radio get's back to previous level.
                        S160 keys still appear on Steering Wheel Controls on all position (TV/Radio/Music etc.) but this is probably another issue to be solved by kotix/bonez

                          Maybe we could add a toggle switch to enable s160 keys and use it to fix the icons...
                          It's just a thought btw...

                        S160 keys app is much more important for me than SWC menu, i have set cd/aux button to music player instead od CD Playet and really i cant live without it now
