What is Vlingo InCar mode and how do I use it?

Vlingo InCar allows you hands-free capabilities to call contacts, send text messages, check SMS and Emails, reply to the last message received and give directions to navigate on Google Maps.

Vlingo InCar supports full Bluetooth capabilities as long as your Android device operates with OS 2.2 or higher. You can also select Vlingo InCar to start automatically whenever you are connected to Bluetooth. Please note that the headset MUST support A2DP in order to function correctly with Vlingo. Note that Vlingo InCar can also be used with Android OS 2.1 but it will not have full Bluetooth functionality.

In order to use it, click on the "InCar" icon. You will be prompted to set it up when it is first opened. Once installed, you are ready to go! Simply click on "Tap & Speak" and Vlingo will listen to your command. If you want to avoid touching the screen all together, you may do so by going to 'InCar' settings and enabling 'Wake up command'. You can simply say "Hey Vlingo" and Vlingo will automatically listen to your command. Note that when this feature is selected, the battery use is increased and it is recommended that you have your phone plugged in and charging at all times. You can also select the checkbox "Only on while charging" to make sure you do not run out of battery if you forgot to disable it.

You can also select Vlingo in Car to start automatically whenever you are connected to Bluetooth. Vlingo will speak to you and will listen to you through the headset. Please note that the headset MUST support A2DP in order to function correctly with Vlingo.

Vlingo InCar also allows you to reply to the last text message received. When SafeReader reads back the message, select the 'Reply' button.

For a detailed description of the different capabilities that Vlingo InCar provides, please check the Settings and Help menus that can be accessed by pressing the menu key from the Vlingo InCar interface.
