IBOLT DOCKMODE IS ONLY NEEDED IF YOU HAVEN'T GOT AN ACTIVE CAR DOCK LIKE THE XPRODOCK.
***** Please take a look at our video to see how this application is working *****
“iBOLT DockMode” offers an easy way to set the "iBOLT Dock'n Drive" application as the "home screen" when driving. With DockMode turned to "on" the user can just press the home button after using a GPS Navigation or Music App (for example) and the screen will switch back to the easy-to-use "iBOLT Dock'n Drive" interface.
NOTE: "Deskhome Display" MUST be selected under "Settings-Accessory" on Samsung Galaxy phones for the Dock Mode to work.
The "DockMode" is built for Android devices that do not allow "DockMode" triggering via the microUSB cable. Examples are Nexus 4/5, LG G2 and Sony Xperia devices. For HTC and Samsung Galaxy handsets we recommend buying an iBOLT "active car-dock" that includes microUSB charging cable with integrated "DockMode".
Together with our “iBOLT Dock’n Drive” app you’ll have the perfect driving experience. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ibolt.carhome) (Requires version 2.2.2 or higher of Dock'n Drive)
NOTE: This application is only enabling and disabling the Android build-in car mode. The functionality is depending on your device firmware. Not all firmwares are supporting this virtual dock mode. Usually all firmwares running Android Jelly Bean 4.3 and higher should support the virtual dock mode. Some lower Android versions are also working fine depending on your device.
HOW TO USE THIS APP?
On Samsung devices please make sure you got the following option activated:
“Settings” > (“My device”) > “Accessory” > “Desk home screen display”
Download this additional app “iBOLT DockMode”
Please make sure you’ve got “iBOLT Dock’n Drive” installed on your device. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ibolt.carhome)
Run “iBOLT DockMode” by pressing on the icon either in your app drawer or on your home screen (you have to add it manually to your home screen). You will be prompted to select your default dock application. Select “iBOLT Dock’n Drive” and confirm with “always”.
Now you should notice a steering wheel icon in the notification bar and “iBOLT Dock’n Drive” should be running. All functions of “iBOLT Dock’n Drive” including the support for the home button should be now working.
HOW TO END THE VIRTUAL DOCK MODE?
Either pull down the notification bar and select “Car mode enabled – Touch to exit car mode” or again press on the “iBOLT DockMode” icon.
You can set “iBOLT DockMode” on your “iBOLT Dock’n Drive” home screen as a shortcut for easy access. (Select “Set shortcut” > “Applications” > “iBOLT DockMode” in “iBOLT Dock’n Drive”)
