    Has anyone figured out how to disable the auto text read out function while in the car dock. I'm not rooted yet. I don't plan to until the ics update next (fall?) Just looking to turn this off, it's annoying.

    I didn't even know the bionic car dock app does this. I has never seen anything like this. Does it speak your text messages or something? I use the car dock everyday and I am confused.

    I'm not sure how/when it works. But when it does a box pops up, phone says something and the you say "listen " then it reads the message out loud. only time it has worked for me is when I use the stock music app. I use Google music now and it doesn't seem to work anymore.
    I like the idea but it's not implemented well. You can't say "cancel" for example. you have to manually go back to the music app when you done.
    Or... Am I using it wrong. Are there any instructions out there?

    I wish I could say it was random. Happens all the time. Bigger problem is that I have a command one Bluetooth and that works through motospeak, which works pretty nicely. But the auto readout trumps that for some reason and deems motospeak worthless, can't even reply to texts through Bluetooth because of it.

    Ok I found a fix. Works for me but may not be ideal for everyone. I loaded Diasable Car Home from the market. In short this makes the phone function as if you're holding it in your hand except in the dock and in landscape mode. No more car dock home screen which to me was useless any how. Home button now takes me back to my home screen instead of dock home screen. I use the blue triangle icon for navigation so it is one of my 4 dock icons. More importantly, no more annoying auto read out and no root needed.

    Does anyone know how to get the card dock text read out to work through a bluetooth speaker phone? I have the bluetooth enabled and the speaker phone works fine for making/receiving calls but when i get a text the read out is just through the phone not the speaker and the phone can never hear me say "Listen".

    I have a Droid CommandOne, and it read through the ear piece. Problem was you have to select on screen to listen and there is no option to reply.

    It works great with my Ford sync. First phone I've had that works with it.

    Both of my vehicles are too old to have a car dock :icon_ goofy: so I just froze the app.
