    It was working fine on my note 2 until new update last week. It no longer trigger in car mode unless I restart the phone.

    The app is good, but a bit difficult to set additional apps. I would also like to set VZ Navigator as default but it won't allow that app to be used.

    This is an ideal car dock replacement while still allowing full use of your regular phone features and home scren functions.

    Upgrading to pro means you have to back up your settings, delete the free widget, install the pro widget, restore your settings, then uninstall the free widget. What a pain.
