Let's you switch between Maps (I'm using Maps GO) and whatever music player you want (I'm using Vanced Music). Whatever music player you choose, when you are in maps navigation, you swipe the bar/bubble on the very left of the screen towards the center, then you will be put in the music control page where you will get to swipe left/right for changing tracks, tap for pause, up/down for volume WHICH LETS YOU KEEP EYES ON THE ROAD! Then drag the minimize bubble at the bottom and swipe back to maps!

So glitchy it's useless. Tried to send a message, it says "No contacts found". But my contacts are all there. 2nd try: I get as far as trying to record message and it says "Sorry I didn't get that." 3rd try: "Sorry, I'm having trouble hearing you, try again later." I had high hopes for this app since Android Auto now only works on newer cars and Google's driving mode now only works if you are using navigation. I'm disappointed and once again without a functioning hands free app.

I wanted to love this app. I've been lost ever since Zerotouch got pulled and thought this app would be the perfect replacement for hands-free driving; unfortunately, it wasn't. When responding to an SMS message, Drivemode would claim "Message Sent!" and it would indeed show up in my messages as sent, but the recipient never received any of the messages. :( The ability to automatically load and connect via bluetooth is a great feature, but it tends to get clunky. The app will load and instead of running in the background, will take over the screen (which can be problematic when you're trying to use GPS) Trying to switch back to my original screen kinda defeats the purpose of hands-free. I didn't really use any of the other features,; as my car will make hands-free calls, I was mainly hoping to use it for hands-free texting. When the other party isn't getting the messages (and worse, I think they are!) it defeats the purpose. Sadly, uninstalling.
