Went on a trip the other day and was disappointed to see that the Sprint Variant of the SGS5 did not have a Driving Mode or Car Mode that was detectable by S Voice. "This device does not support this feature." is the only response I would receive. My S3 and my mother's S4 both retain this functionality. Just curious if anyone has a way to restore this feature or a good alternative.

Thanks

I don't know why it does that. I get the same error message. But in the quick toggles it shows up.

It works from the toggle for me. Note: I just rooted today and this was working before root.

I think it may have something to do with agreeing to the terms and conditions of S Voice?

So I was able to trigger Car Mode via Tasker but it isn't quite the same. It does not read text messages or anything like that. Anyone have any other suggestions? I'd be willing to use a thrid party app as well. Kinda upsetting to have a new car with BT and not be able to read and respond to texts through it.
