  • I have been used Car Home Ultra for a few months now. The interface is outstanding, but may be a bit too busy. The auto respond to text is a great feature. The only thing that I can really complain about is the speed and compass. I can be driving 65 with the cruise set on a flat road. The speed indicator will float +- 7 MPH. The compass is also floating +- 5 degrees (these are the max I have noticed.) The device GPS has been properly calibrated and it works perfectly with my navigation software. These are more of annoyances than anything.
  • Love it! Especially love the "start up when BT and power connected." 2 issues: the home button does not take me to CHU, it still goes to normal (portrait oriented) home screen; phone calls also display in portrait orientation, which is then sideways in my car dock. Those features worked with galaxy S3, but not on Note 4.
  • Not Sure Yet I don't know if it is something that I am not doing right but everytime I try to setup the Dock Settings it crashes. If anyone else has any ideas on why this happens then please let me know. Jury is still out with this app.
