Drive Safe – Get UCD


Please try the app before using it while driving to familiarize yourself with how it works.

Speech Recognition

For speech recognition to work in pre Jelly Bean versions of android you need to have an Internet connection ! .. When prompted to speak after the beep, there will be a slight delay as the voice recognition software starts. This delay will depend on your phone but will be approx 1 second after the beep. A red box will appears on the screen to let you know when to start talking.

Receiving a call

When Ultimate Car Dock is running and you receive a phone call, the app will replace the standard call screen with our own. To answer a call simply say “Answer” when prompted to. To reject a call say “Reject”. To reject the call and send an SMS text message to the caller say “Text”. The call screen has large buttons to answer or reject the call in case you do not want to use voice control. Remember to wait for the red box which appears on the screen to let you know when to start talking.

Receiving an SMS text message

"Please Note: Some 3rd party SMS apps can block any other app from receiving text messages ! If you are having any issues with this just drop us an email and we will assist you.  When Ultimate Car Dock is running, and you receive an SMS text message, the app will say to you “Incoming text from… contact name, or phone number”. You can then simply say “Read” to have the message read to you, “Reply” to create a text message, or “Cancel”. If you say “Reply” then the app will ask you to speak your message. After this you can say “Read” to read your message before sending, “Send” to send your message or “Cancel” to cancel. Remember to wait for the red box which appears on the screen to let you know when to start talking."

Making a call

"From the home screen tap the “Voice Command” icon, or from Sleep Mode tap anywhere on the screen. When prompted say “Call” or “Phone” and the name of the contact you have stored in your phones contacts or any phone number. If you have more than 1 number stored for the contact then you will be asked to say “which number”, for example “mobile, home etc”. Remember to wait for the red box which appears on the screen to let you know when to start talking."

Sending an SMS text message

"From the home screen tap the “Voice Command” icon, or from Sleep Mode tap anywhere on the screen. When prompted say “Text” or “SMS” and the name of the contact you have stored in your phones contacts, or any phone number. If you have more than 1 number stored for the contact then you will be asked to say “which number”, for example “mobile, home etc”. Next you will be asked to speak your message. After speaking your message you can say “Read” to verify that the voice recognition has understood you correctly. When prompted you can say “Send” to send the SMS text message. Remember to wait for the red box which appears on the screen to let you know when to start talking."

Sleep Mode

"Use the Menu or settings to enable “Sleep Mode”. When in sleep mode just touch the screen anywhere to activate voice control. When prompted to speak, wait until screen goes red before talking, which will probably be less than 1 second. Then say your command."

Voice Commands

Sleep mode Speech Commands;

1. “Send text to {contact name or phone number}” -
“text {contact name or phone number}”    
If you have multiple numbers for the same contact you will be asked to select one. This takes you to the send SMS page where you are asked to speak the text message after beep. Remember to wait for the red box which appears on the screen to let you know when to start talking. 
2. “Call {contact name or phone number}” or “phone {name or number}” 
3. “Navigate to {location}” - will start Google navigation and set driving instructions to the location you said 
4. “Start {app name}”. Will start the app name of your choice. This looks for apps you have selected for the home pages. So if you put Gmail on the first page of this app you can say “start gmail” and it will start your gmail app. 
5. “Play Music” / “Stop Music” / “Music Play” / “Music Stop” / “Pause Music” / “Next” / “Previous” . For music controls
6. “Last Message” . To load the last received SMS text message for you to read or reply to.

Incoming Call Speech Commands

1. “Answer”. To answer a call
2. “Reject”. To reject a call
3. “SMS” or “TEXT”. To reject call and send a text message

Incoming Text Speech Commands;

1. “Read” - to read the message
2. “Cancel” - to cancel
3. “Reply” - to send a message back

Reply SMS Speech Commands;

"When prompted just speak your text message. After you have finished speaking you will be asked to say “Read”, “Send”, “Cancel” or “New Message”. At this point you can also say “Continue” to add more text to your message."

Music Player:

This is very easy to use, fills a whole screen and looks very sleek. You will find the music player in settings (from the top left menu icon.)

Tip: remember to set up the playlists you want to listen to BEFORE you drive off. Choose a “click to add” tile, then “Select a Shortcut” and from there choose “Music Playlist”. You can add a number of playlists from your favourite music player.

Steering wheel or Bluetooth headset button:

Activate this function by pressing the call button on your steering wheel or headset that is connected to Bluetooth, and choose UCD as the default action when prompted.

UCD will respond to all voice commands from a click of the call button on your steering wheel, or on your Bluetooth headset. You can even leave your phone in your pocket or handbag with the screen off – UCD doesn’t even have to be turned on for this to work.


"To add shortcut icons to one of the 5 home screens of the app (which you can swipe left or right). Click one of the “Add” icons and then select the shortcut from the menu that pops up! This menu will show all the applications installed on your phone plus the 7 that we have set up for this app:

UCD Great Assistant

An outstanding app for those on the go. I am outside most of the day and this app has eliminated the need to stop and read SMS along with needing to grab the phone when it rings. The app does it for you. It works even better for me because I don't have to reach for my glasses when these events happen. The app creator is a great supporter and responds to your questions Okay at times those repeatable commands are annoying but it gets the job done. Great app!!!
Cy Clone – Google Play Store

Don't bother with the competition.

I don't normally pay for apps, but out of frustration with other driving apps I went ahead and took a chance on this. Nothing could match the quality and functionality of the software built in to my previous phone. I can honestly say that this exceeds what I was looking for. This is simply the best driving mode application out there. Just buy it already. You won't be disappointed.
William Cornelius – Google Play Store

Brilliant app

Does so much to enhance my driving experience. Bonus for me was after contacting the developer he quickly implemented a feature I requested. All in all I'm well suited.
Mark Steel – Google Play Store

Truly Great

This is the only app that lets you drive and text and make phone calls legally and safely. In my book it's worth at a 5.7 Rating. I tried all the others, they have nothing to offer. Samsung Galaxy
Richard Wilson – Google Play Store

Just what I needed

Works really well. It doesn’t try and do everything. And I can link it to Llama Location Profiles with the car-mode flag. Just about to upgrade to full version.
Rohit Gupta – Google Play Store

Really Cool Program

Had doubts about just how well this program would work and was pleasantly surprised. All functions I tried worked great. At this point, it rates a 5*. By the way, my wife rates a 5* as well but can't rate since she won't do Google +.
Tim Driver – Google Play Store

Brilliant !

This is really superb :) i just love it :*
Gwen W. Cox – Google Play Store

Great app

This is a great app and will help you be safer while driving more people should hey this app in Baltimore Maryland it is illegal to talk or text on your phone but people still do anyway they should get this app pay attention next time somebody cuts you off or does something wrong look I bet they are on their phone this app could potentially save lives and fast response if you need help from developer.
Timothy Wray – Google Play Store

waw..! what a great app.

This may be the best car dashboard apps available in play store. I am really happy that I have Ultimate Car Dock-Dashboard. As users already explained all its excellent features so I should not repeat them again. I just want to say that UCD should be installed in every device to enjoy its awesome features and make driving more convenient and safe
Karen Hill – Google Play Store

superb Car Dashboard

Excellent voice command solution. I use only UCD during driving. It’s all features are very useful for everyone. It makes my driving more safe and easy. I should say thank you to the developer for its correct and fast response to input voice command. Moreover other features like Speedometer and customized favourite apps dashboard. It’s a very good app.
Raj Ariyan – Google Play Store

Safe and convenient

Being a taxi driver it was a kind of hassle for me to touch the phone every time it received text message, incoming call during driving so I was looking for something that can convert the text message to voice and also make a reply or call to the sender followed by my command. And my friends suggest me Ultimate Car Dock-Dashboard. It’s just kind of awesome app, exactly for what I was looking for. Value for money and highly recommendable.
Shoriful Islam – Google Play Store

Works Exactly as Described - Thank you!

I didn't have to wait for the 7 day trial to end before I purchased the full version. Works exactly as described! I had a question during the set-up of my Galaxy s5 and received a response in 15 minutes. Very easy to read screen. The voice commands work great for texting! You can add apps to the UCD homescreen. I have text message, Pandora, compass, speedometer and email through UCD and it simplifies the process. Highly recommended!
Marnie Boyd – Google Play Store

Well worth the money

This is the only dock that actually does read SMS and can reply without touching the screen. Only one I found which actually understand speech. Fairly accurate as well, certainly worth the price considering the $400 fine for using phone to send/read SMS in traffic unless hand free. Would be 5 star if had more verbal commands like volume control.
