    Default Google Car Home Keeps Opening Up.

    Does anyone experience the problem of "Car Home" App constantly opening up when in other apps. It opens up every few minutes in youtube, and when im on the browser.

    I had the same issue, but only when I removed the phone from my holster. I isolated the problem to when the phone came close to the magnet in the flap of the holster. The magnet launched Car Mode and was reproducible every time. My theory is car mounts will be manufactured with a magnet in them so when you mount the phone it automatically launches Car Mode.

    I rooted my phone and used ROM Toolbox to freeze Car Mode and now it never happens. Hope that helps.

    That was the problem! The magnet in my laptop was setting off the Google Car app. Thank You Very Much!
