[Q] Shortcut for multi window

Is there a way to make a shortcut or even make an app (like using App Factory in Tasker) to quickly open up two multi window apps without needing to use the side bar?

I've installed Car Home for when I have my phone docked in my car and want to use one of the buttons on the home screen to run Google Music and Maps. This way when I'm driving and listening to music and want to navigate somwhere I can just hit the home button to go into Car Home's main screen then hit the shortcut button (which is a nice large easy to see button while driving) to run multi window. Anyone have an idea on how to do that? I've tried digging around but can't find a way. I'm also rooted and running xposed/wanam if that makes a difference or if there's a module which allows this that someone knows about that I don't.

Thanks.

I have not seen any way to open up 2 windows without using the sidebar.

How about putting an NFC tag on something like a piece of cardboard you keep in your car. When you want the multi - windows to appear, just move the cardboard near the phone. Thoughts?
