Car Dock mode works with Nexus 5 - from iBOLT
As many observant XDA Car Dock users have noticed the "DockMode" option is back with the Nexus 5! This is great news as it allows you to set a "CarHome" interface Application as "default" home screen when driving. The "default" means that even after you've set your GPS navigation or after making a call you can just press the "home button" and the "CarHome" screen will come back on. Car manufacturers are bending backwards trying to create the "Connected Car" experience but you can have a similar experience today with a good quality car dock and an NFC tag.
With the "DockMode" App you can also start Bluetooth automatically, shut off WiFi and turn off your incoming SMS temporarily through the "ItCanWait" functionality (Dock'n Drive App) when driving. When stepping out of the car, just tap on the NFC tag again for the reverse (BT off, WiFi on etc.) Here's how it works:
1. Go to Google Play store and download the free "DockMode" App...https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ckmode.carhome
2. Also download our Dock'n Drive App/Interface
(also free) or choose the CarHome Ultra App or the Ulysse Speedometer
. Those ar the three "CarHome" Apps that at least I know about.
3. If you don't have an iBOLT "Connect kit" use an NFC tag to launch the "DockMode" App (Orange Icon). The 1st time you use it your phone will ask which "CarHome" App to use as default screen when driving. To turn off the "CarHome" screen you can either tap on the NFC tag when stepping out of the car or just tap on the Orange "DockMode" icon and the default Android home screen will come back.
