If i look into the settings for this app, it leads me to believe that I don't necessarily need HTC's car dock in order for the car app to automatically launch as long it connects with the bluetooth in my car? I have a 2011 Chevy Malibu and 2012 Chevy Traverse that this is happening on...

Sorry misread, I don't use this functionality hope you figure it out.

Edit: just a thought, if it doesn't work on its own, you can always use tasker to launch carmode when connected to xyz Bluetooth...

You don't have to buy the dock but the music and bluetooth will only start when the app is auto launched either with the dock or a special usb cord with some of the wires bridged with resistors. Starting the app by hand doesn't initiate the settings. I don't know why HTC did this but it's just the way it is. You can get the cable below or make one with an extra usb cable. I used to have a dock for my Evo4GLTE and I can verify the car app setting will work when auto launched.
