    I am using the Smart Actions Drive Smart profile which brings up Vehicle Mode whenever connected to a bluetooth device. One I turn off the bluetooth so that profile is no longer in use Vehicle Mode still shows in my notification bar. I've tried to remove the notification by swiping it, but it won't go away. I don't want to see the little steering wheel icon all the time, how to I get out of vehicle mode?

    I have also noticed that the icon is there after leaving the navigation dock. For me, at least, it seems to be hit & miss, sometimes it's there and other times not.

    I tried vehicle mode figuring it would turn off bluetooth when not in car, but all I got was a bunch of notifications that seemed like a pain, so I turned it off. The only thing that looked good was an auto text reply that I was driving and couldn't text, but even that wouldn't let me customize a reply text, although it seemed like that was a choice.

    After that first time when the vehicle mode icon wouldn't go away, after that it did every time and haven't had issues since. Weird

    What's worse? If I leave an application up and then dock into the nav mount (jelly bean)....

    If I hit the back button, it goes right into the app that was open.

    If I hit the back button again, it goes into the nav dock app.

    Endless loop unless I undock, close the app/home screen, then dock.

    To delete the Drive Smart SA (or any SA for that matter) press and hold the SA a couple seconds. A menu option will pop up to either View or Delete. Select Delete to delete.

    You can change the text in the auto-reply message as well. Open the Drive Smart SA by pressing on it. Now press the Auto reply to texts and calls. This brings up a menu to select who you want to auto reply to - make any changes here by selecting what you want then press Continue. This brings up the next menu which allows you to select what you want the auto-reply to reply to - make selection then hit Continue at the bottom. This brings up the final menu where you select what you want the auto-reply message to say. There are three 'canned' answer and then the bottom one is for Custom message - select this one and then enter what you want the message to say. Press I'm done when finished and then it puts you back out to the main Smart Drive SA menu. Hit Save at the top. You are good to go.
