The M7 had an app for Car Mode after an update. I can't figure it out for the life of me for the M8!!! I've read on some other sites that Car Mode is present on the M8, but where?

Anybody figure this out? I have the ATT version.

Mine's UK too - Car Mode automatically starts when connected to my car head unit (Alpine ics-X8). But no audio !!

Can anyone confirm if their audio works ?

Thanks.

I've got a UK M8 and the D190 car cradle. As soon as I place my phone in the cradle, it automatically connects to my car, without issues. No audio problems whatsoever.

Not that I'm aware. Just got power going to the cradle and it automatically turns the car mode and bluetooth on. My car always has bluetooth enabled so connects instantly.

That's not quite what I was talking about. It's more like the picture below on my head unit when connected by USB.

It's not in app drawer (at least for the AT&T variant), but it's part of the OS. It's triggered when you have a USB connector with a car mode pin. The HTC Car Dock and iBolt support this. Probably others as well.
