Great app, but some issues with Pixel/Android 7.1.1 I've had this app for years, with a number of different phones. I've been very happy with it. But, since I bought a Google Pixel phone, I've had a few minor, but really annoying issues. My phone is set to vibrate 99.9% of the time. However, when this app starts, the phone goes out of "vibrate" mode and the ringer volume goes to about 30%. I wouldn't mind this undesirable action so much if it returned to its previous setting when the app closes, but it doesn't.
I've been a paid user of Car Home Ultra for several years, and to this day it's still absolutely the best Car Home launcher out there - "miles" beyond Android Auto. :) I use it literally every single time I get into my car, to launch my GPS app (Waze), my podcast app (PlayerFM), and my dashcam app (Autoboy), and sometimes I use the audio player function when I'm not listening to podcasts with Amazon Music. Car Home Ultra does a fantastic job of managing everything.
After closing, continues to run in night mode during daytime in background, until you open it, when it then instantly returns to day mode. Unfortunately, whilst it is locked in night mode, it locks other apps into thinking it is night-time and they too stay in night mode until you reset Car Home Ultra. In fairness this didn't happen on my old Sony Xperia Z but does on my Samsung Galaxy S5 running Android 6.0.1 Very frustrating as I have to put CHU in Day mode and manually switch it to night mode when driving at night. Ironically, if left in manually in night mode, it doesn't affect other apps.
Nice size buttons Does everything I want and makes the buttons a usable size for my eyesight when set up as sat/nav, music & radio player and phone through the aux in my van.
Well designed app I'll give it 5 stars if you make an option to let the app exit when disconnected from the car Bluetooth.
Great to use on a treadmill. Many options available in settings, now to see what it costs to purchase after 30 trial expires. May need manual backup of settings because app is not linked to a cloud account for syncing...could be wrong, more testing on my part is needed :) Thanks!
