Car Mode feature on a custom ROM (DEFY)

2012-10-21, 11:54 AM


Hi,



I updated my Defy to cyanogen 9 (Android v. 4.0.4), but would like to be able to use the car mode feature.



Any thoughts on how to do that?



 



Thanks!

We can't support custom ROMs here - you may want to ask on other forums.



But there are lots of 3rd party car dock apps and profile apps (like smart actions) - and it would be easy for you to pick any of these and create your own smart action  - launch car dock when car BT connection is made.



I use profile scheduler. It does all that smartactions does too.

Thanks for your reply!



Would you know if any of these apps could recognize the magnet of the Motorola Car mount to trigger an action?

Nothing i know of recognizes the magnet programmatically - and the newer phones use a chip in the different docks to trigger things.



BUT - I think the magnet will signal the OS to go into car dock mode - so if you have other car dock software that should launch. I am not sure if launching the car dock can be trigger for the profile app or not.



But since they are all free, you can try it and see.
