In my hacked htc hd2 dock lately I just use nova lancher which rotates automatically, and no dedicated car mode. Bigger icons would be nice and alternate home screen layouts and icon & widget choices would be nice, but just rotating to landscape is good enough for now. As it happens this dock I'm using does have a flat surface that might be just close enough to the nfc antenna. Just annoyed at Samsung.

Anyone know how to get Carhome ultra to be the default program to launch when i plug in the dock connector? It launches the clock app. I don't remember setting anything as the default before hand.

Thanks. That worked. I was just hoping that it would work like MikaelPe had shown in the video. Just plug in the cable, select carhome ultra, and boom, it launches carhome ultra when the dock connecter is plugged in without having to use a different app to launch carhome. I had it carhome setup to launch when BT connected but it just defeats the purpose of having a car dock.

Default Ulysse Speedometer becoming xProDock compatible..

We just received the updated app today for the popular application Ulysse Speedometer so within not too many days this app too will be formally updated on Google Play with the note that it works as "Dock app" with the xProDock and Samsung's Smartdock mode. Greetings!

Am I right in thinking that flashing the Perseus kernel enables you to have car mode as well as smart dock mode? I'm trying to decide which route to go down when making my own cable, and I don't want (for example) my car apps to open when I plug it into a smart dock so it would be good to be able to tell the difference between the two.

Got the new cable and I'm using Tasker to do a whole bunch of stuff when the cable is plugged in including launching CarHome. Works incredibly well.

I found This, it is made for driving and it also has big icons! Someone also mentioned in the thread that it works on the note 2.
