Call anyone, just say “call ” and name of your contact, the call is placed, and the sound is automatically set to loud speaker.
UCD is full of many user settings and customizations. There are options to have the app auto start when you connect to a specific Bluetooth device, as in your car’s own dashboard system, or start when connected to a USB powered car dock / holder.
