Start AmiGo With Overlay mode

Hi Tomtom,

I believe there's a option to start the AmiGo app with overlay mode a few updates ago.

I'm currently using 7.140.0 Beta version of the app on Android 10, and couldn't find that option.

Starting the app in overlay mode is pretty useful in my opinion, since I usually use Google Maps for navigation, with AmiGo overlay on the side.

Will this option be added back in future updates?

Thank you.

    Hi @oldskool896

    Welcome to the Community! This is the beta version of AmiGO, we have a Slack channel for the feedbacks related to the beta application and you can join it here: https://amigobeta.com/feedback

    Also, I've not seen such an option to start the app with overlay mode directly on the AmiGO. Perhaps this can be a good feature request.

    Regards, lampard

    Hi @lampard

    It seems that this problem only happens in the latest beta version of the Amigo app.
    I found out by reading a post in the Slack beta channel.

    The latest version of the stable app still has the "Start with overlay mode" option in it.
    It is located in Settings→Overlay mode→Always start with overlay.

    Thank you.

    This doesn't seem to work with the realeased version. "Always start with overlay" is missing as an option

    You can now close the app from overlay. If you do that, the app will open in overlay again.

    Look for Amigo app on Play Store.
    Scroll down and you can find the option to join the beta.

    You can also download directly from apkmirror.

    Sorry to hear this. Do you mean you have that error since you moved to beta?

    This seems to have broken again in release 7.361.0. Overlay mode in no longer sticky when you exist in overlay mode. The app re-opens in full screen mode :-(

    Hi @Wibbly

    We've seen some issues with overlay mode on Huawei, Xiaomi, and Samsung devices but not on the Google one's. I'll check with the team again.

    Thanks, lampard
