Two Official KK Oddities

I'm seeing two oddities that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I'm stuck on the Official KK after a hardware swap at the local warranty repair center.

1> My phone goes into hands free mode everytime I get into the car and it detects my car stereo/bluetooth ODB II adapter. This is starting S Voice for some reason. I originally had a Tasker task that put my phone into hands free mode, but I've verified that it's disabled. Is there a hidden setting deep inside settings that associates hands free mode with a bluetooth device? I swear I looked all over the settings.

2> Pressing backspace seems to cause the cursor to jump backwards 5-10 characters and delete that character. You fix that mistake and press backspace again and it does the same thing, all the way back to the beginning. I thought it was a keyboard bug, but I switched to the Google Keyboard and the same thing is happening. Has anyone seen this before?

Thanks!
Doug

not sure about the first one but for the second check your key press delay in the keyboard advanced settings and make sure it is not too low, pressing and holding the back space key will remove words at a time.

My phone went into hands free mode automatically when I had a location set for my car. Settings\connections\location\my places. I believe the phone identified the car via blue tooth and switched to hands free mode automatically. I removed my car from my places and no more hands free mode coming on automatically.

Thanks! That was it!

It would be nice if I could just stop S Voice from launching on starting Hands Free mode. When I was on a rooted KitKat, I had S Voice frozen and that's why it didn't start then.

Glad you got it sorted out. You can disable S Voice via settings/general/application manager/swipe to all applications/S Voice/and select turn off.
