who cares right?
well car mode is sort of related to SVoice in that nobody can seem to get the S5 to wakeup from a lock screen/display off using a voice trigger like the Moto X or other older Galaxy phones.
Anyways, I tried to use Tasker to run a "Car mode" task, and the first time I did it, a few days ago, it said "not available on this device"..oh well
But I tried it tonight and for some reason it worked!
Now the phone shows the car mode icon in the notification bar.
Maybe this is a clue of some kind that Svoice voice trigger while locked/display off is somehow achievable?
And a juicy further tidbit:
The blue LED blinks about every 6 seconds while the screen is off. I have tasker enabled and no new notifications in the menu bar.
Isnt the blue-LED blink supposed to be related to voice recording with the screen off?? Is this a clue that the Hexagon low power DSP is listening even though it doesnt work for some reason?
Ive tried to get the phone to wakeup while locked but I cant.
