WAZE AppRadio - screen is off center

Postby Scorp42 » Fri Mar 01, 2013 10:28 pm

I use an avh-p8400bh

If you go into settings and scroll all the way down, you should see an option to use waze with a supported head unit. Make sure that is on (may need to restart app)

WAZE AppRadio - screen is off center

Postby heymike1 » Tue Oct 23, 2012 9:00 pm

Hi I'm using WAZE with Pioneer App Radio model AVH-P8400BH, I use it with an iPhone 4 using iOS 6. When I open WAZE, the window is shifted to the right about 1 inch. The first inch on the right side of the screen on the radio is blank, and the WAZE window starts about 1 inch in. I can still navigate and see most of the buttons but there are some options I can't see as they are on the far left of the screen.

All other appradio apps, including other nav apps, display correctly. Is there any setting I can adjust to view the full screen?

Bizarre - speedo worked on way home and today. Perhaps it was due to first run of the app after update. I saw the very stretched screen while it asked me to install voice pack while connected to AppRadio. Restarted and all was good - i still have a black band at the top of the screen with some text, and having looked very close i can make out the work BACK in the middle. This bar dissapears when in NAV mode though - i tried pressing where is says back but most of it is up behind screen bezel and doesnt seem to do anything ?

Is your's an Appradio 1 or 2 - i know the screen size changed but not sure if aspect did too ?

When i started 3.6 for the first time with AppRadio today it said "Uh-Oh this is not supported with AppRadio" - or something like that - not sure what isnt supported though.

What i did note is that the MPH stayed at zero for the whole of my journey today.

Is this a function that doesnt work in 3.6 and AppRadio ?

I'm running iOS 5 on a 4S and havent had the screen off center issue, but i do believe the screen is stretched vertically, as there is something at the top of the screen that i cannot read in a black bar which disappears if i use the navigation.

I've applied for Beta access so hopefully can help with AppRadio development too.

As of todays update, the keyboard and scrolling issues should be fixed.

As a beta tester, I'm not really sure what I'm allowed to say about upcoming changes in the client.. so I haven't posted here a lot. But let me take a moment and help squelch a few concerns:

Waze appears to be taking appradio support pretty seriously. I just joined the iOS beta team, and within days of my posting about the keyboard issues, or the scrolling issues.. it was fixed and available in the betas.

They don't seem to say too much here, and.. as I said.. I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to say.. but please know they are working on it. And they do take our feedback seriously.

If you guys find any "appradio" issues in this new version (3.6) please let me know so I I can get it tested for myself, and get a proper bug report written for the Waze team.

Happy driving!

I had this same issue, but found a resolution!

After multiple phone restores due to a defective iPhone, I finally found this sneaky little thing. After installing iOS 6, it appears the TV Out widescreen setting defaults to OFF instead of ON (where it needs to be for Waze and CarMediaPlayer to display correctly.

There is a hidden setting under "Settings>General" that only appears when you have an HD output device connected (such as connecting your AppRadio) Labeled "TV Out".

Tap TV out, and you will get a screen with 2 options, Widescreen Off/On and Output NTSC/PAL.

Make sure to select Widescreen = ON and Output = NTSC. This should resolve the Waze (and other apps) display issue(s)

Enjoy!

I haven't been able to figure out a rhyme or reason for this, however sometimes it displays perfectly. Sometimes its displayed maybe 1.5 inches off center making the app nearly impossible to use.

We should try to get pictures of it being offcenter and post them here. Then submit a bug report to Waze with this thread in reference.

Have you tried changing the output from NTSC to PAL and vice versa. It might help. Do it from Settings on your iPhone.

I, however get a small black bar at the top of my Pioneer 8400bt that says 'back' on it and you can only read the lower half of the word 'back'. if you touch on it, nothing happens.
