Default [REQ]Google CarHome apk for ICS

Hi!
I'm running CM9 and wanted to install google carhome. It's not available in my country so i googled it and found the apk file. But after installing i do not see icon in the app drawer. On GB roms there was a carhomelauncher.apk but i can't install it on ICS roms. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Moving the launcher app in system/app did the trick.
Thanks.

Move it to system/app and set permissions rw-r--r--. Reboot and enjoy. You must have carhome.apk installed before that.
