    Turn off Text to Speech when in Car Dock

    Ok, so I haven't been able to find a menu that will turn off car dock from reading my text messages out loud to me. When I'm driving I don't even want to hear that crap or send text messages, but no matter what I do, I cannot get the car dock app to stop trying to read out text messages to me. Anyone on here have the car dock yet and if so, have you tried turning this "feature" off? I can't stand it!

    Still been trying to get this thing to shut up when receiving text messages while the phone is in the car dock. I decided to download car home ultra (non stock app) and make it the default car dock app for my phone. Even though I have done all that, when I get a text message, the Text to speech crap STILL pops up. I've turned it off in the menu under settings with no luck. This is going to be a big pain in the butt until I can figure it out. The Car Dock on my Droid X didn't do all of this stuff. There has got to be a way somewhere to turn this junk off. If they have forced it on us, I'm not gonna be a happy camper.

    Well I have been working on this and cannot for the life of me get this thing to stop announcing every text message. It's annoying! ...and I'm taking it that there aren't a lot of people with the car dock out there yet. lol - If someone figures this out, please let me know.

    try this out... No dock needed (I hope I say this so you can follow.)

    Settings - Voice Input & Output - Text to speech Settings..... I think there should be your fix.

    Change that.... This is going to help you abit
    Might try the same thing while on dock? or use the Menu button to see if there are further settings you might have missed at some point? I took my Car Dock back. But I use the Lapdock and the HD dock neither of them cause that effect. Has to be a setting for just that dock.

    Found this looking it up on the web (So Borrowed Fix)... Not as simple as turning off a Bad Feature but Google has a Stock Car Dock App on the market but "Droids" don't like to get it from market so you will have to use this link and Browser of Firefox to Down Loaded it. Wish I had an easier fix but from what I have read this will do the trick for you and still give you every thing else you want if not better than the one that came on the phone. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.carhome&feature=sear ch_ result

    Thanks for the replies. I appreciate it. I did some research and did find the google car home app. Here is the kicker though. You can't get it on the market so you have to do a google search for it and then move it to your phone via usb and install it from there. So this is the link to the process I followed:

    Look on YouTube for (sqlite editor, bionic, mobile hotspot.) Useing sqlite editor you make one change and you have free wifi tether untraceable. Yea I know your a cop but this is not stealing as you will be using it the same as if by USB.
