looking for opinions
Ok, with the caveat that I haven't tried this app, for NFC tag type settings changes, this app NFC Task Launcher has good reviews: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jwsoft.nfcactionlauncher
Otherwise, there is tasker, which I know can kick off activities based on how fast you are traveling. However, you may not want that - if you are a passenger in somebody else's car, you may not want to have the hotspot toggle on. That's why NFC tags may be better - you can have two in your car; one to toggle hotspot on, one to toggle it off. (If that app NFC Task Launcher can toggle hotspot...)
