Car Home Ultra user reviews :
Outstanding app. Use it every day. Recently had a question regarding a setting I wasn’t sure about and emailed an address on their support site. They responded very quickly, answered the question and even took the time to offer a suggestion that might work for the way I use it most. Highly recommended and a thank you to the developers.

- Thanks for the review. More improvements to the media controller coming soon! Other users have reported that clearing Car Home as the default dock app and then reseting fixes the Ok Google problem.
