InDrive is a unique application that combines car mode functionality with an advanced trip computer and deep Poweramp integration. With one-touch access to the most useful features on your phone, this app is your perfect driving companion!
InDrive makes it very easy to launch your favorite applications, directly dial numbers, view your trip information and control music playback*. It will auto launch when placed in a compatible car dock. If you don't have a physical car dock, InDrive provides an option to force your phone into car mode, which will allow the app to override the Home button. Please note that for this feature to work properly on Android 2.x and higher, you have to set InDrive as the default car dock app. To do this, simply check the "Enable car mode" option in the settings and follow the instructions. This only needs to be done once.
NOTE FOR ANDROID 4.2.x USERS: Unfortunately, it appears that Google has removed dock home support in Android 4.2. Pressing the Home button will now return you to the launcher screen instead of InDrive or other car home app of choice. If you want this feature back, please vote for the following issue: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=39662
* The music screen is designed to work in conjunction with Poweramp. Without Poweramp installed, you will only be able to do very basic controls such as switching to the next song in the default Android music player. Support for other media players is not guaranteed.
Trip computer features: * Street address * Speedometer (mph, km/h or knots) * Heading * Battery level * Weather (Fahrenheit or Celsius) * Odometer * Time traveled (total / driving / stopped) * Average speed (total / driving) * Max speed * Elevation * Time of day
Startup options: • Enable car mode (Force the phone into car mode like it had been placed in the car dock) • Check GPS status (Open the location settings screen if GPS is disabled) • Turn on Bluetooth • Disable Wi-Fi • Set media volume (Does not affect the ringtone volume) • Set screen brightness (Will override the automatic brightness setting if necessary)
Other settings: • Keep screen on (Prevent the screen from locking while the app is running) • Disable auto rotation (Turn this option on when driving on bumpy roads) • Turn on speakerphone • Mute notification sounds • Vibrate on press • Minimum accuracy • Filter the GPS speed • Run in the background • Enable track logging • Exit on undock
BATTERY USAGE: This app is very battery intensive when used with the default settings. When not connected to a power source, please uncheck the "Keep screen on" option in the app settings.
