I would like two new features.
Display current street and perhaps current speed limit if possible.
Current street name should be possible by utilizing GPS and perhaps Google maps database.

Id suggest something in that matter, currently player controls are shrinking with raising speed, with 100km/h+ the play button nearly disapears. Id love to see the player controls moved into the weather pannel, tgat would give even more space for the additional info. Also id suggest having a 3dot in tge upper right corner which overlays the power and menu widget currently always visible

Is there anyway we can get the current location/address show somewhere? I have another car app that gives you the current street and address, and that's a feature I'd really like to have.

Love the app - took me all of about 20 seconds to go premium. One question on the icon pack functionality: It appears it's an "all or none" setting, without the ability to choose an icon for a particular shortcut - or am I missing something?

This would be a very nice feature, since not all my apps (NPR One, for example) have dedicated icons in my favorite icon pack (3K SR Black).

I am having a problem with recent versions or probably android 5.1 related. I have tasker enabling bluetooth when connected to charger, and car dashdroid automatically start up when connected to my car stereo, also my prefered view is landscape so i have the fone horizontally mounted in car. Unfortunately this leads to a strange lockscreen loop, it switches from landscape lockscreen to portrait and back all the time. I need to unmount the phone hold it in portrait possition and then it finally unlocks and i can use it.

A few suggestions for shortcut management in Car Dashdroid.

1. Two shortcut screens are not enough, please allow for an arbitrary number of shortcut pages.

2. Indicate the current screen using page numbers, or dots, or tabs.

3. Make it easier to add shortcut screens. Swiping past the last used screen should open a fresh blank page. The current screen management UI in app settings can be retired. Right now adding a new shortcut page is way too difficult.

4. Sometimes you need to select and run a random app. Add a persistent "All Apps" button (all launchers have that). Or have an "All Apps" feature in shortcuts, so users can place it wherever they like.

5. Offer an option of larger grid sizes, e.g. 6x3 would be useful for 7" screens.

P.S. Thanks for an awesome app.

Another suggestion: being able to reorganize shortcuts by dragging them would be really nice.

Could you give a try? Please, just to check if it is only me.

With stock sms, it is working fine. But Textra is a far better app in general.

Just trying out Dashdroid. I have a problem when using Tomtom as navigation app. When I launch navigation from a contact in Dashdroid Tomtom tells me that it can't find the address. If I use Google Maps as navigation it works correctly. If I perform the same test from the Android standard contact app, both, Tomtom and Google Maps work fine.

I have a 2014 Ford Escape with Sync w/MyFord Touch. When I am using the media controls on the steering wheel, they do not work with Play Music to skip or go back with the car dashdroid app open. If I close it then it works again. Anyone know if I am missing a setting or what?

I bought the upgrade and it works now. Not sure if it was the upgrade or if I finally got the right settings.

OK.  I think you have to use Voice since it is suppose to be hands free.

I like the setting to turn off wifi automatically but does it automatically turn it on on exit? Can we have the option not to turn it back on but just to leave it off?

I've been looking for a car dashboard app that will read incoming texts and allow me to respond. Car Dashdroid seems like a great candidate but when I gave it a test I found a problem; it uses Google Now for the voice commands and for some reason when the app is active, Google Now will not echo back my message.

For example, if I say "text Bob". Google responds "What's your message?". I say "Hello Bob." And here's where the problem is - normally Google would say something like "Here's your message; Hello Bob. Do you want to send?" In other words, it reads back my message so I don't have to look at tiny print on my phone (while driving). But with the app active, Google now only says "Do you want to send?". The message is displayed on the phone, but not echoed back.

Has anyone else experienced this? For reference, I'm using a Galaxy S6. Thanks.

It's the outgoing message that needs to be echoed back.

Google Now must have some setting or mode that causes it to echo back the voice message when using Bluetooth. And it's not just text messages. If I set a reminder via Google Now, it will echo back the reminder before asking to save it. But as I said, this does not work when connected to Bluetooth with the app active.

Auto day/night mode dosn't work with 24 hour time format. I tried to set the AM / PM format and working properly. If I go back to the 24-hour format, after 12 sets the night mode. Now, 16 pm. set night mode!

Hi guys ,I need to fix some bugs but I went to Audi and I saw they have garage opener, so I'm going research this and I found Audi uses homelink they don't have any dev support but I will try contact them to see what can I do, but I'm kind of new in garage openers, so any other brands out there you are using? Would be awesome have this feature and maybe automatic when you in home right? What do you think?

Would love full Poweramp API integration. Would be really awesome to have customizable commands for Tasker. When Klets was working, I could push a button on my car stereo and run all sorts of Tasker commands, my favorite being open and close my garage door via bluetooth that I rigged up. Unfortunately, Klets is dead. The developer said he'd make it open source, but I don't think he has. Thanks for this great app and keep up the good work.

I have the power amp support but available for pre 4.4 because in 4.4 the generic music controls should work

Hi I paid for premium. I've swapped to a new phone but still use the same Google account. I'm being asked to pay all over again.
