Default Read SMS in my car?

I'm coming from a HTC 8X and WP8 has a feature which will enable driving mode only when you are connected to a specific bluetooth.

Is there anything like this for the Nexus 5. So I can tell it which bluetooth is my car and only read SMS's if it is connected to that.

I've seen some apps that might do this but they all have the most horrible Froyo style interface, is there not any Holo looking one and one that uses the notification listener service from 4.3+. I don't mind buyin the app either i it's less than $5 or so.

Agree with Aerowinder, Tasker will do that and much, much more but it will take a time investment to get it to work and understand it. What you're asking to do is relatively easy with Tasker once you understand some of how it works. Suggest doing a search for Tasker profiles listing what you want to do. Good luck!
