Default [APP] HTC Car Panel & Google Car Home

OK guys I just want to share an app that I've been using since the nexus one but missed it with my amaze which is a good car dock app. HTC has Car Panel which is nice but not as good as Google's Car Home which you can customize.

HTC Car Panel

Google Car Home


To install Google Car Home you will need to install HTC Car Panel too because for some reason Google Car Home doesn't install an icon for sense roms.


This is where Car Panel comes in, when you open the app drawer select Car Panel select Car Home.


One of the things I like about Google Car Home is the fact that it can automatically open the app once it sees that you are connected to your cars bluetooth and disables it once you disconnect.

The only thing that doesn't work is when you go to settings and select Android Setting it will force close(probably cause of sense)


Enjoy!

EDIT: Oh sorry I just saw that they are 2 different apps. NVM

what is the difference in the 2 attached files? I do see one file is bigger than the other in kb size.

P.s. FOOTPRINTS WILL NOT work, because we do not have that app on our phone...I see no benefit to using HTC car panel, I use car home, in conjunction with vlingo car mode.....flawless...I just wish vlingo car would start up on its on when I plug it into my car charger but its in beta for now...If I could I would use vlingo car for everything...I has everything I need.
