It has a widget to enable / disable the service from the home screen of your phone.
Note: You must have installed a text to speech application and language data to use (usually new phones already have this application)
Enable application when entering the car and disable it when descending.
If you want that the application reads the text messages you receive.
If you want that the application answers automatically the incoming calls.
If you want that the application answers the incoming calls while there is a call in progress.
If you want that the application picks up or rejects the incoming calls from unknown numbers.
A simple toggle, which once activated automatically switches all incoming and outgoing calls to Speaker Mode.
To use, create a new PowerToggles widget and add Speaker Mode toggle under "Custom" tab.
Works on eclair, froyo, gingerbread, and now honeycomb, provided your phone was already capable of car mode.
I've had trouble with this functionality embedded in Car Dock Home v3. Even google seems to keep their app that enters car mode separate from the market app that acts as a car home.
If you are on a froyo or better phone and have the Google 'Car Home' icon in your launcher, I recommend using that to enter car mode.
I'm compelled to make this free due to the functionality previously being in Car Dock Home v3 (free)
Keywords: Car Mode, Car Dock, Simulator, Car Home

HandsFree application uses low power accelerometer in your smart phone to detect your activity (e.g. driving or biking). The application consumes little battery power with no active running service in the background that could drain the battery. You will NOT notice any battery performance difference after installing this application.
1. Automatically activate auto answer feature when the application detects you're driving or biking
2. Automatically suspend auto answer feature after you're no longer driving a vehicle
3. Auto answer incoming phone calls can be limited to callers in your contacts (or starred contacts)
4. Auto answer when a selected Bluetooth device of your choice is connected
5. In the absence of a Bluetooth device, auto answer with speakerphone
6. Can always auto answer regardless of activity and the status of Bluetooth device
7. Allow/disallow the second call to be auto answered
7. Set a time delay before auto answer
HandsFree Answer is free. Driving mode auto detection feature (Auto Answer When Driving) is free for use for 30 days. Afterwards, that feature will be disable. If you would like to continue using that feature, please upgrade to Pro version by downloading 'HandsFree Answer Pro' license.
New option in version 1.4: some phones running android 4.1.2 are known to disconnect bluetooth headset when going to sleep mode. If you have experienced this problem, try enabling "Keep bluetooth alive" in settings.
NOTE: Since android OS does not provide standard and reliable way for an application to answer incoming calls, there's absolutely no guarantee that Handsfree (which uses some undocumented features of the OS) will work on your device. Feel free to try it, but if it does not work, - sorry, there's little I can do for you, sorry.

How it Works
1. Download the free Text While Driving application to your smart phone.
2. Prior to driving, activate the TextNoMore application and select your estimated driving time. During this time the application shuts down all notifications, holds incoming texts and prevents outgoing texts. For incoming texts, Text No More's Text While Driving application sends a standard reply along with a reward coupon. You may still receive incoming calls if you are using a hands free device.
3. Once the TextNoMore's Text While Driving application is enabled, an image of a missing child is displayed, followed by a reward from one of our Text No More Sponsors. The reward is held in the database of your phone until you visit our Text No More Sponsor to redeem it. The TextNoMore Sponsor is able to scan the bar code contained in your reward voucher directly from your smart phone. Put and end to Text While Driving!
Auto hands free is a Tasker plug-in to check if the hands free mode (aka drive mode or vocal mode) is on/off and to enable/disable it.
Note: at least on Samsung Galaxy S4 hands free mode turns on GPS so you can use it even as workaround to turn on GPS without root.

that will solve all of these annoying problems, all while keeping you totally safe when driving.
HFT will allow you to hear who is texting you, either read or ignore the incoming message, hear it again, and then respond, all using your voice. HFT won’t just immediately send a message either -- we all know that sometimes voice recognition isn’t totally accurate, so HFT will replay the message before sending so that you can avoid any embarrassing messages if your voice is not recognized properly.
Unlike most voice recognition apps, HFT is compatible with both bluetooth headsets and in-car devices. In addition, HFT gives you the choice to automatically turn off voice notifications when your device is in silent or vibrate mode, without you having to worry about it. Turning HFT on or off is as simple as tapping the homescreen widget, which glows red to tell you that it is running. A status bar notification will also let you know that you’re ready to text hands-free.
When it comes to safety, peace of mind, and convenience, there is nothing better than being able to continue texting with your eyes safely on the road or whatever else you may be doing, and HFT makes it happen seamlessly and effortlessly.
HFT, it's cheaper then getting a ticket for texting while driving.
It can send SMS's, Call, start Gps, and Receive calls and SMS's. Just push one button (which is big therefore you won't have to look at the screen) and say either "Call", "SMS", or "Gps" and follow audio instructions.

פקודות קוליות בעברית היא אפליקציה אשר ממירה דיבור לפעולות
נכון לעכשיו, התוכנה תומכת בשלוש פקודות: פתח אפלקציה ,נווט (הניווט מתבצע בעזרת Waze) והתקשר לאיש קשר.
בכוונתי להוסיף פקודות ואפשרויות נוסופות.
האפלקציה עובדת בעזרת שלושה כפתורים או אמירת שני פקודות לחוד ולא בעזרת פקודות קוליות באופן מלא, מכיוון שגוגל מזהה יותר טוב שמות של אפלקציות יעדים לנווט ושמות כאשר לא אומרים בהתחלה "פתח את" , "נווט ל" וכד'
האפלקציה תומכת באנשי קשר ואפליקציות שרשומים גם באנגלית וגם בעברית

** NOTE: For this to work your device must have magnetic sensor built in **
To use it, you try use any of the following methods -
1. Rest it on your palm as the device would rest on a table. The compass disk should rotate and automatically align to the directions. The angle displayed is the direction where the top of the device points towards.
2. Hold your phone as if you are photographing an object at the direction of interest. Read off the angle displayed for the direction. In this mode, the application will seamlessly adjust to portrate or landscape orientation.
3. Use the 3d vector mode (select Show Vectors) from menu. You should see a sphere with some vectors (lines) shown which would keep reorienting in response to how you hold the phone. Identify the direction of true north from the sphere displayed along the light green line.
1. Easily readable compass direction as a combination of analog and digital display with boxing
2. Display different sensor values - acceleration due to gravity, magnetic field inclination, magnetic field strength
3. Display phone inclination
4. Automatically adjust magnetic declination to display true north using current location. (Location is read from Network, GPS is not necessary.)
5. Stabilization for rapidly fluctuating field or sensor error.
6. View the real magnetic field direction vector in 3D!
7. Calibrate feature gives ability to correct systematic error in the sensor
