Car Dock Home v3

Available in :
Fully customizable car home replacement.

UNINSTALL NOTE: This app will be a 'Device Administrator' if you activate the 'Lock screen on undock' feature. You must deactivate the feature, or remove the app from your phone's device administrator before you can uninstall. Go to your phone's settings, Location & Security, Device Administrator, disable Car Dock Home v3, then uninstall as usual.

Add your favorite apps, shortcuts and widgets to as many as 7 screens, for easy access in the car. Defaults to a screen of 2x3 cells for large easy touch buttons.

Shortcut and app buttons can be renamed and given custom images.

* Full size widget support
* Landscape dialer pad (work in progress, but functions)
* Landscape contacts, and starred contacts

Supports many automatic settings when phone enters/exits car mode, like

* enable gps
* disable wifi
* enable bluetooth
* all volumes to max ( bugs: misses navigation volume, and ringer... )
* turn off device on undock

Layout customizations

* Landscape/Portrait lock
* icon grid anywhere from 1x1 to 4x4
* full screen or not
* paging buttons, or not
* smooth scrolling like your home app.
* Icons scaling options.

Screen timeout

* set timeout/inactivity page independent of start page. ( This is why people think it changes pages on it's own... cause it does... but you can control it. )
* OR pick a widget that will be displayed as a screen saver.


* Landscape friendly contact list & starred contacts list
* Navigation link that attempts to resume navigation if maps app is running ( not 100% reliable, a work in progress )
* exit car mode
* visit desktop without leaving car mode.

Your Input is Welcome!

Note: home key while in Car Dock app only takes you to start page if Car Dock app is set as default car home and you are in car mode. Car Dock does not automatically put the phone in car mode... Try google's 'Car Home' icon to launch car mode on froyo, or my 'Car Dock Control' for eclair/froyo/gingerbread...

If you don't like my dialer and contacts, you can use your own... Many complain that the stock Android dialer/contacts app doesn't support landscape, but I've found that it does, but on many phones you have to enable auto rotation in the dialer app preferences.

Broken Necessary app, but unfortunately very unpolished, and completely broken since the last update. Can't open it at all.

by A Google User the 6/25/2013

Good. No frills. Smooth. Not so good on the Galaxy S4 Now with another device and a new version of this app, I decided to have a go at it (since Car Home Ultra just gets worse each day). And... surprise! It works! PROS: simple, no frills, smooth, small. CONS: home screen scrolling doesn't "wrap around" (must scroll aaalll the waaaaay back to the other end); can't move icons around (must delete, and add in new position - bummer when you notice you long-clicked at the wrong position). And no speed info, etc. Galaxy S4 won't enter car mode :-(

Crashes Seems to crash on GS3.

I Keep coming back to carhome I've used carhome for a few years now and have tried others to see if they are better. I like the live wallpaper, so that i can use music visualizer. With tasker and carhome you are almost perfect. Only improvements I would suggest is the ability to hide the soft menu button on ICS and the icons are too low quality. On my old gingerbread phone the icons were jagged and ICS tries to smooth them out making it blurry.

Needs work I loved this app on my Bionic. On the Galaxy S4 the screen times out, making thid app useless.

by A Google User the 5/30/2013

No default screen The only thing the screen defaults to is exit and desktop which is it's just another exit. You have to fully customize the whole thing yourself. I don't want to waste my time.

by A Google User the 5/23/2013

Doesn't work with Droid x2 When using Motoralas car dock. Save yourself the headaches.

by A Google User the 4/22/2013

Good App Needs the option to Prevent the screen from locking while in car mode.

by A Google User the 3/24/2013

Car docking not supported on jelly bean Just a heads up. There's no way to get the home button to return to this app. Something to do with jelly bean no longer having a car mode.
