Contacts Permission is necessary for the Direct Dial shortcut option that is included with the app.

If not using a car dock or power adapter, please ensure the "Keep display on" option is not checked

App Permission Descriptions:
Device & App History – This is required for the new Media Controller feature to detect if a media player is running and able to accept media requests.

Contacts/Calendar – This is required to setup a direct dial shortcut. The app does not access the calendar but it is bundled with the contact permission. If you do not setup a direct dial shortcut, the app does not access your contacts in any way.

Location – This is required to access the GPS for the speedometer, compass, altimeter, weather, etc…

SMS – This is required for the new SMS Auto-responder feature. If that feature is not enabled, my app does not interact with SMS in any way.

Phone – This is required for the Direct Dial shortcut. Again, no used if you don’t set the direct dial shortcut.

Photos/Media/Files – This is required for the Debug Log feature. If you don’t enable the debug log (and there is no reason to if you aren’t having problems), then the app doesn’t read or write any files. Photos & Media are bundled with the permission, the app doesn’t need those.

Camera/Microphone – The app will need the microphone permission for any voice activated features in the future. It is required right now for the media player visualization feature. It is important to understand that the app is not actually using the mic, but is attaching to the audio stream to get course binary data about the audio being played to render a graphic presentation. Attaching to the audio stream requires the mic permission. Camera is bundled with the mic permission, the app doesn’t use the camera.

Wi-Fi Connection – The app needs this permission to enable/disable Wi-Fi.

    Since the latest update when I press the play button it only plays music and does not continue from the last podcast. The app I use for podcasts is Pocket Casts. Other than that the app is amazong and I've been using it for about 2 years.

    Really like this app for working in your car, but how do I turn off the voice over?

    No longer works the way it used to after I upgraded to Android 5.0.1. Previously It would take you to the home screen of this app when you tapped the home button (while in car mode). It no longer has this feature which makes this app useless to me. I now need to find the icon and open it from my regular home screen which is distracting to find while driving. The patch also did not work for me. Sa

    Media controls broke after last update. Also doesn't come up automatically anymore when connected to Bluetooth.

    Since lollipop, incoming calls appear as a tiny notification with an even smaller Answer button which is very easy to miss while driving. When screen is off, however, the full screen incoming call display will appear. Please make CHU do the full screen incoming call appear as well. It would make this app even better than it already is. Thanks!

    Issue with the homescreen seems to be fixed. Yeah! ATT Note 4 - since lollipop update no longer able to return to the app with the home button. Instead I get dumped to regular home screen. I have tried changing every setting within both the app and system.
