    Did you disable, or uncheck Drive Assist when using Utter?
    Once I've started using utter I've completely shut driving assist off. No need for it.

    Yeah I love it too.

    Yes. If you use the phrase to wake option it does drain the battery. On my battery meter it was a solid 5% of my daily drain. That's why I use it primarily when I'm driving. It's on the dock charging with wake on screen running so no big deal.

    This isn't bad at all. If it's only a 5% drain for an entire day of use then it seems like utter is also able to take advantage of the motox's unique dedicated-core design infrastructure and minimize battery drain while always listening. I did some research this morning and most people using high end phones like the note 2 and htc one report substantial drain while using this app with the always listening option (while trying to ape the moto x). Sounds like 5% drain for an entire day is about what touchless control should normally drain. I'm going to try to use this app as my main touchless control option and disable the X's touchless controls to minimize battery drain. Since it integrates with google now, if utter doesn't recognize a command, it will just ask google now anyways, making the motox's touchless controls redundant.

    I've tried to retrain the Moto X many times and it is still not working accurately. It activates with just"okay" or just "Google". Maybe I just have a confusing voice, it is a bit nasally.

    This is definitely one way to go. Although touchless control is a major feature, I don't use it so often that I want to bring a variable into what is a perfectly functional device for me. I have to believe it's an area that will be improved upon by Google/Motorola, but I would say a dedicated developer will probably always have a step up on a team working inside a huge corporate structure

    This would amazing. Customizing the command would be even better.

    When you retrain, make sure you're in a dead quiet room.

    Did you ever find out for sure if Utter! caused more battery drain vs the stock moto touchless control app?

    Is there a way to set a different app as the default for navigation? For example, I'd like to always use Waze. Could I set it up so that when I say "Navigate to Home/Work/Gym" it will launch Waze, insert the destination and begin navigating?

    I'll be honest here, here are the 2 voice commands that I have experienced that don't work well at all:
    "Where's my phone " just on case you lost it in your house somewhere.

    Play music. This feature works, but not very well.

    It always wants to stream something on Play, never wants to just use what I have downloaded or local content. Even when I'm specific on what I want.

    I just tried this with different artists. Play (artist name). It pulls from My Library consistently and starts playing but doesn't always start with the first album track. I'll admit all music is arranged as full albums so I don't know what happens if it's just Singles kept in My Library.

    I rarely have an issue opening Waze with my voice.

    "OK Google Now"

    "Open Waze app"

    Opening the Waze app isn't the problem. It's getting the "Navigate" voice function to choose Waze to do the navigation by default.
