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.

    Works Fine! But a digital font to the speedometer and the other tabs would be better, the app Crashes when Google music player is started.

    App keeps saying "near my_city_name" all time. I can't disable this, it's annoying...

    I really enjoy this app. I use it with AppRadio unchained and it works pretty well. I don't know if it's possible but one feature I would like to see is that when I'm in an app launched from car home and I hit the home button it returns to car home instead of the phone home scree.

    After upgrade to Lollipop, the home function does not work, even with the option enabled. Also the app keeps trying to run on the background when not in use... Possible battery draining... Enjoy the app in Kit Kat, but now with Lollipop, it is inconsistent... I hope this gets fixed in the future.
