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.

    The voice can be improved since it sounds as if the voice recorder is kind of sad telling you your location and temperature.

    Excellent design, well thought out and very customizable. I really love the day / night mode, media control, address display and location announcement. The ability for the Home button to bring you back to the app is really nice too. I emailed the developer about the title and artist not displaying for Slacker and he said if the app sends the info, he displays it. Maybe Slacker is sending it in

    I have yet to find anything I need a car dock app to do that this one doesn't. Highly recommended, fantastic app. Frequently updated, too!

    For some reason I am unable to create a shortcut for Pandora. Stitcher, Tuneln, Scout, etc all can be set up as a button on my screen, but it doesn't recognize the Pandora app. Why?

    Used to work perfectly on my Galaxy S3 running Android KitKat 4.2.2 and used app daily in my iBolt car dock. However, I recently upgraded my phone to a Galaxy Note4 running Android KitKat 4.4.4, now using iBolt Pro car dock and now the compass and speedometer are no longer working. Verified "location" was enabled and set to highest settings. PLEASE fix compass and speedometer and will give 5 stars
