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


  • Open Android Auto on the phone, go to About and tap the "About Android Auto" header 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 tethering (from the phone)


  • Connect your unit device running HUR to the newly created hotspot


  • Start HUR


  • Select Wifi





Wifi Direct Mode
Open HUR, press Wifi Direct and follow on-screen instructions

Self Mode (when Android Auto and HUR are running on the same device)


  • Open Android Auto on the phone, go to About and tap the "About Android Auto" header 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

HUR crashes after start
- Try changing HUR setting and disable "Media Workaround"

Compatible with: Joying, Eonon, Grom Vline, Xtrons, PX5 and PX3 units, A-Sure, RK3188 units, RK3066 units, Avin and other Android powered head units.
