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.

User reviews of Car Home Ultra
Does not work with new Evo4g LTE and new sprint car dock. Tech support was no help getting it up & running. Save your money and frustration trying to get it to work.

Samsungs hebben (icm de officiele Samsung car holder) een dock-scherm. Maar deze is veel beter, én je kan iedere houder gebruiken. Goed instelbaar, zeer practisch om je telefoon handsfree te gebruiken tijdens het autorijden.

Have issues with following items Size of boxes used for display and then use the thin navigation bar between screens Boxes are to big and would be nice to be able to pull up the contact list to chose numbers rather than set individual contacts the try to use the small navigation bar ( I have chubby fingers) to page between screens
Dec 8, 2011
Nice App, but it would be good to switch bluetooth on/off automatically by dock/undock. I don't need bluetooth when undocked

This is the only app I recommend that costs money, but I like it. You use it in the car and it will tell you your direction, weather, and speed as well as provide large app shortcuts.

Wondering why in this app needs permission to access my camera and microphone. This update is asking get far to many permissions. Users be aware and pay attention to what apps are asking for. Give them only what they need. There is no reason for it to access contacts, texts, pictures, camera, microphone and more. Otherwise I loved the app but they are now asking for too much personal info.

Love this app, it makes my weekly commutes to college bearable. Latest version has a bug that causes the app to crash when launch and the only way to stop it from crashing is to clear the app data. Hopefully fixable in a week or so cause college starts soon! Great job on the interface And customization options so far though! Love the music page type.
