    Is there an app or widget that can be used to make a larger button? I'd prefer a 2x2 size that I can use to direct dial while driving rather than having to fiddle with the small 1x1 size, but anything bigger than the standard would be fine.

    I've only found apps that make smaller buttons and one that makes me select subsequent options before I can actually call. I just want a large single press widget.

    Have you checked out some of the car mode applications that are available. Some of those provide a screen gridded into something like 6 cells that are basically buttons for other application functions, including making calls.

    For example, Car Home (http://www.appbrain.com/app/car-home/com.google.android.carhome) is free on the market.

    You could use desktop visualizer; basically creates a widget with whatever size and icon you want. It's on the market.

    Desktop visualizer works perfectly, thanks!

    Carhome sounds useful too, I'll check that out too.

    To take it a step further. Use desktop visualizer + WidgetLocker Lockscreen to put the direct dial shortcut on your lock screen. Especially useful if driving because you don't have to flick through uneccessary screens.
