On my Samsung Galaxy S5, how to add other apps to my home screen selection?

I plan on downloading a car tuning app on my phone. I'd like to be able to put my phone in car mode and be able to select the app from the car mode home screen. How do I add an app selection?

Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S5's Car Mode does not allow you to add additional applications onto the Car Mode home screen. In other words, the car tuning application you download from the Google Play Store onto your phone cannot be put in your phone's Car Mode's home screen. This is because the Car Mode is designed to prevent people from using their phones' most basic functions -- music, phone, text messages, and navigation -- and distracting themselves from driving their cars. As such, only music, phone, texting, and navigation features are included in Car Mode, and you are unable to add any other applications that may distract you from the road as you drive. To open the car tuning application that you download from the Google Play Store to your Samsung Galaxy S5, you will need to keep your phone in its normal mode and simply open the app while you're driving.

Samsung Galaxy 5 Lollipop with Bluetooth earpiece?

Since upgrading my Samsung Galaxy 5 to Lollipop, my phone automatically goes into drive mode whenever I turn my Bluetooth earpiece on. However, most of the time when I do this, I'm not driving and do not want drive mode to be turned on. Is there a way to disable drive mode from automatically turning on when a Bluetooth earpiece is connected?

Hi, I have a Gear Fit watch and a Samsung Galaxy 5?

The Gear Fit keeps turning on the car mode on the phone when it gets any distance away. Now it seems to disconnect during phone calls and restarting the phone.

I can't hear and can't be heard during voice calls on my Samsung Galaxy Note2?

I can't hear and can't be heard during voice calls on my Samsung Galaxy Note2. When I make a call the speaker by my ear does make the default Android 'dialling now' noise, but then nothing (although the call seems to connect and the other party picks up). Do you think this is a problem with the phone. Changed the SIM to another Android...it works fine..please help..

How to turn off keyboard cover on Samsung Galaxy Note5?

I installed Samsung Car mode from the Galaxy store. I tried it, it said it had to change to default theme and use keyboard cover. I restarted the phone because it would not let me leave the app. When the phone started again, my home button doesn't do anything and my recent app button doesn't either, nor the back button. Don't know what to do, and Samsung says they are too busy to handle my problem so I am searching your site lol.. I have tried: Force stop the app. Uninstall app. Change themes. Restart phone.. I think it was caused by: Samsung Car mode from the Galaxy Store. Said using the app would turn on keyboard cover.
