    Why is there a toggle for driving mode but a car mode thru S voice. Seems like a little bit of redundancy.

    I don't see "car mode" in S voice. (I'm on Verizon, if that makes a difference.)

    I apologize they are the same apparently my Tectile toggle said Car Mode and when activated does indeed turn driving mode on.

    There isn't any car mode that I've found on the S3. Apparently S Voice is supposed to substitute for it but it doesn't in my mind. I purchased Car Home Ultra from the Play store.

    I'm still trying to figure out why I don't have a quick toggle for driving mode in my notification bar...not sure if it's an AT&T thing or not.

    Kind of a pain to go through the settings menu to toggle driving mode.

    I don't see a car mode but with Verizon we do have Driving mode in the notification bar.

    I'm on AT&T as well and I don't have a "Driving Mode" toggle in the notification bar either, in fact I can't find driving mode in settings anywhere. I can activate "Car Mode" through Tectiles, but I can't find a way to turn it on otherwise (maybe through S voice, but I'm not a huge fan of talking to my phone).

    Anyway, what exactly does car mode do (besides activate S voice)? Does it read incoming text messages by default?

    VZW users have the "Driving Mode" toggle but they do not have the WiFi toggle in the notification bar.

    You can toggle it in: Settings > Language and Input > Text-to-Speech Output > Driving Mode.

    It will read who is calling and tell you that you received an email or message.
