Smart Car Dock is a highly configurable car dock launcher.

It let's you assign the following to any button (by long or short clicking if not already assigned):

-launch apps, shortcuts (f.i. short-dialer), and show widgets (two per page). Note: widgets need pro version of Smart Car Dock and at least Android version 4.1!
-a gps button like velocity (mph/kmh), altimeter (ft./m) and driving direction (en/ger)
-time (am-pm/24h) and date button (us/eu)
-multimedia player shortcuts like play/pause, stop, next and previous song (Not any player supports this!)
-shortcuts to raise/lower volume, mute/unmute device and speaker on/off
-shortcut to trigger voice commands (Google voice search or voice dialer-if installed on device)
-exit app

More functions:

-Drag and drop buttons (by long-clicking text)

-Change image and label of buttons

-Clicking on a gps-, time- or date display launches a cockpit-view. In this view you can see the current velocity, altimeter, driving direction, time and date. Depending on which mentioned element was clicked in the main-app, this element will be as large as possible in the center of the cockpit-view. All the other mentioned elements are placed around this element. The cockpit-view can be left again by clicking anywhere on the screen.

-Current location visible in action-bar and cockpit-view

Swiping down triggers a voice control. If you say "right" or "rechts" (ger) you scroll to the right page. If you say "left" or "links" (ger) you scroll to the left page. Any button on the current page gets a number on the upper left. If you say this number the button will be triggered. You can also jump directly to a page. For instance if you say "page 6" or "Seite 6" (ger), you switch to page 6 directly, regardless on which page you currently are. If you left the app by triggering a button, you return to the app by saying "home" or "zurück" (ger). The control will be restarted automatically until you say "finished" or "fertig" (ger) or until you swipe up in the app. It is necessary for this control to have a proper speech recognition installed on the android device. It is also recommended to install offline speech recognition packages in case there is no internet connection available.
