Is there a way I can create a Tasker task that would enable the Motorola Assist Driving function via an NFC tag with NFC Task Launcher? I'm pretty familiar with NFC Task Launcher but I'm pretty much a total noob with Tasker.
I just received my Moto X and had this exact thought. I'd like to be able to automatically trigger Driving mode, but only conditionally when an NFC tag is triggered, and then have it determine when I'm not driving anymore on its own.
Unfortunately, this would almost certainly require an API to be open by the Motorola Assist app that would allow another program to talk to it and issue it commands. I don't think that's the case, which is a bit of a bummer, since it's so useful.
I was taking a short drive back to my office, so I didn't bother to pull my phone out of my pocket. Sure enough, about 2 minutes into the ride, my Pandora station started back up automatically, and since it's paired to Bluetooth, it just started playing through my car speakers, which was awesome. Would be more awesome if it was triggered automatically by BT, and/or NFC though...
