Is there a driving mode or car mode for the droid razr
The stock car mode only works with the motorola car dock, however, you may want to try the "CarHome Ultra" app in the app store. I have been using it as a motorola car mode replacement for a couple weeks and absolutely love it. Way more functional than the standard dock app and you do not need the motorola car dock to use it.
Hey there YellowJacket .... I'm also a Knoxvillian!! AND I also use the CarHome Ultra app, but sometimes my droid will randomly start announcing text when the CarHome app is on. I think it may do it when I manually disconnect my bluetooth but I haven't tested this theory out. Have you had this problem? I dont want it to ever announce my texts, and the worst part is ... it will keep announcing my text even after im out of the car and have closed CarHome Ultra.
Really sucks when I come into work, and am sitting in my cubicle and all the sudden "TEXT MESSAGE FROM GRANT, SAY LISTEN TO HEAR THE MESSAGE". I usually just restart my phone to make sure this doesn't happen....but let's face it, that's super annoying and this shouldn't be happening.
I did notice that if you hold the Home key to see your recent apps that CarHome and DrivingMode are both in the list. I'm not sure if carhome isnt overriding driving mode properly or what. None of my smart actions are enabled that have to do with driving mode.
I'm in West Knoxville - Concord area.
To fix your problem, go into car home settings then sound. Check the first one on the list "mute notification sounds". That should fix it.
Also, holding the home key brings up recent apps but not necessarily ones that are still running so CHU will still show in the list. If you go into your phones settings and choose manage apps, then running apps, you will see that its not listed in the apps that are currently running. ( or SHOULD see it that way...)
If you have certain triggers to use, you can use Motorola Smart Actions to turn on the stock car mode. I use Car Home Ultra Pro most of the time, but wanted to try the stock car mode just to see how it worked.
My triggers: Charging Status changes, BlueTooth connect to Ford Sync.
Action: Start Car Ultra Home (or select the stock Car Mode).
The BT always connects on my phone in the truck, this way the car mode only starts when I have it plugged into the charger.

But should my "Driving Mode" app (that came with the phone) be in the list as well as car home ultra. I understand why I am seeing car home ultra, but i'm not sure why I am also seeing the driving mode app in my recent apps.
Thanks for the other tip though, going to try it on my lunch break today and hopefully that solves the problem!!!
