Driving mode offers many conveniences in the car, and in other selective environments as well.  If you want to use it, you should keep in mind it is a feature that needs to be selectively enabled and disabled appropriately.

Driving mode can announce the name of the caller, read the content of a SMS text message, announce the number of emails received, and tell you the time of your alarm and scheduled meeting.  Here is an in-depth look at how to get the most out of driving mode on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

  1. Very clear and helpful. Thank you!

  2. If you have a car radio with bluetooth paired with your GN2 I found the killer app to be "NFC Task Launcher" (free on the playstore). It's ostensibly for NFC, but works with bluetooth too. Now when I get in the car, even if my GN2 stays in my pocket, it recognizes the cars bluetooth specifically and switches automatically to Driving Mode. Similarly it turns it off when you leave the range of the car bluetooth.
    Thanks Mike for the great series of tips.

  3. Help! After the Android 4.3 upgrade,I lost driving mode! It's now called Hands Free, but it no longer reads my messages while I'm driving. It only announces that I have a message from someone. USELESS!! Bring it back!
