    Never had this on my other Androids. It (tries to) come on when I connect to my Jeep's bluetooth.

    Do I need this? What does it do for me?

    Seems no one knows either?

    I want to delete this app(?), function because I can't silence the ringer when it is "in charge".

    How do I do that?

    Wow!

    I am not the only one that doesn't know "you know what";) from Shinola. It's an Android conspiracy.

    Have you checked the U Connect operating manual for the version of U Connect in your Jeep. Fellow Jeep driver here and there are several different versions of U Connect our there. Might be something you can disable or turn off. Not sure what "car mode" is.

    Sorry for the delay Tom. CarMode simply makes it easier to use your device "hands free" with your Bluetooth. Many Bluetooth devices don't allow you to communicate with your phone via voice commands, Car mode makes this possible with most all Bluetooth headsets. You have to make sure S Voice it's activated, go through the setup process, and learn the basic commands and you won't have to even touch your phone. Simply say "Hi Galaxy" and then whatever action you want to perform such as "call Jane mobile" and Car Mode does the rest. You can use it for sending text messages, navigation, etc. Once you get used to using it and learning the proper commands it really works quite well.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I have learned to use car mode and I like it OK.

    Here's the issue: once it's on, I can't turn it off except by re-booting the phone.
    And when it's on I can't mute the ringer, a no no when in meetings.

    This is not a U Connect thing. All is well when I am in my Jeep using B/T & U/C.

    The battery life seems to be improving with my better management practices.

    If you swipe down the notification bar with two fingers you can edit your quick start buttons by clicking the edit icon and then drag and drop your car mode icon to one of your top buttons. This way you can easily turn it on and off.
    Good luck Tom, let me know if this works for you.
    Glad to hear your battery life is improving.

    While in meetings you could use blocking mode. Only important contacts you designate are allowed to ring through.

    Car mode had a mind of its own. Keeps coming on with or without Bluetooth being enabled. PITA!
