    Dead? No updates for 20 months!!? in general this is OK but misses the most basic thing which is a major problem - it does NOT start playing music as soon as the app opens. You cannot get this to happen, there is no setting for it... so you have to fiddle with your phone as soon as you get in the car. ANNOYING. Also when you are on a call, the home button doesn't go back home, which is a big problem if you are navigating somewhere and get a phone call, you cannot get back to your map! If you pull down notifications and then select to go back to Carhome Ultra, doesn't work either. Pressing the floating Carhome Ultra button also doesn't work, so you're stuck on the dialer... major problem... also it seems the developer has lost interest in this app.

    Best car environment to use. Keeps the music and navigation apps as they are, unlike android auto, that make Tidal, Spotify or Plex or Waze, Google maps, etc. look weird. The only issue I have found is that on the music viewer page. The covers from Tidal do not work (controls do, but no covers). This doesn't happen with Plex, plexamp, Tidal, amazon music, etc. All those show music covers fine. There is something with Tidal that makes it a bit incompatible. I hope someone fixes this issue.

    Reinstalled on Pixel 5 and had to give it all access for everything to work. Does need to be updated in my opinion.
