Like it. Wish it could overlay speed on Google navigation. Then it would entirely replace the Garmin.

This is the best car dock home screen I have used! Works on Garminfone.

Great app! best cardock so far. Developer: can you have the phone use speakerphone by default when receiving/making a call like "custom car home" does?

Great!! Free, not a trial like all others, works, great for safer driving, and has ability to ad any app. I wish there were 6 buttons instead of 4. I also wish it was possible to disable some/all features (speedometer, altitude...etc) to save more battery and make space for more shortcuts. Thanks for making a free ad supported version for us & PLEASE consider adding 2 buttons and disabling option for features! Thnx~

Older version worked better Now back button won't exit the app regardless of whether "disable back button" is toggled or not, and as a result car mode doesn’t disable when Dashboard exits. Good as a free app, but there have to be better, simpler alternatives.
