    I'm using the Nonsensikal ROM now and noticed that Car Home doesnt work anymore. I've installed twice and the app's shortcut is nowhere to be found and under applications, the 'open' button is grayed out. Only 'uninstall' is avalable. Not sure what the dealio is...

    The new car home is made to be launched by placing it in a dock(nexus one and droid only) or by syncing with a bluetooth device. If you want to launch it manually you can add it via "shortcuts" to your home screen. I thought it would be a problem at first as well, but actually prefer turning it on with bluetooth sync.(now if only my bluetooth would work)

    Oh. I had it working before when I used the KaosFroyo ROM. Seems to me that that may be the reason it's not working now with the Nonsensikal ROM. No?

    It's not the ROM it's the version of the App you're using. Nonsenikal dropped the old versions of a lot of google apps, so you can run the newest market versions. The new version of car mode doesn't show up in the dock, but you can add it to your home screen. It's 100 time nicer too, IMO, because you can now add apps and buttons to it, so you're not stuck with the same 6 links.

    It's ROM related. Some ROMS it shows up in the app drawer and others it doesn't for some reason, but the program is still there.

    In any case you still have it. Long press on the home screen>shortcuts>activities...and you will find it in the list.
