    Default Car mode issues -- texts; not reading them, voice commands to send text don't work either

    Coming to the M8 from the Moto X and have come to rely on the great Moto Assist driving features. Hoping to find some similar functionality on the M8.

    Have the ATT M8; enabled Car Mode by installing Nova Launcher and installing a short cut to the homescreen.

    Car Mode will announce phone calls and allow me to decline or answer. It will also allow me to initiate a call (though it's voice recognition SUCKS).

    It will not announce/read texts messages however; nor will it initiate a text message (I've tried "Send Text to" "Text <contact name>" "Send Message" "Message" ... none of them work.

    I can say "OK Google; send text to <contact> " and that will work to send something, but that doesn't take care of the reading.

    Anyone have any experience with this and a work around or another program to suggest to do this?

    Thanks.

    This works pretty good on my phones.

    The developer us also very responsive. I actually used it on my Moto X because it worked better than the stock solution over Bluetooth.

    Armadillo, the other white meat.
