Google has released a new version of their Car Home application for Android devices.  Already awesome in the way it turns your devices into a personal navigator/assistant for your on the go needs, it gets better with customizable shortcuts and personalized settings.  Effective today, Nexus One andMotorola Droid owners can start tweak the colors and background images as well as pick apps for display.  Now it’s possible to put Pandora or Slacker Radio one safe touch away.  

Read more at the Google Mobile blog. It should be noted that the original post indicated this would be available for Android 2.2 devices in general, but the update now refers to the Droid and Nexus One.  Look for a rollout to other phones in the near future.


  1. THIS is why you should buy Google phones with the “Full” Google Experience. Screw these phones with Bing and other limitations… VZW and AT&T are ruining the experience!! D1 rules…

  2. If you can’t get it to install / work right on your phone, remove or move the CarHome apk from /system/app, but be sure to leave the CarHomeLauncher.apk. CarHomeLauncher.apk is a pre-req for the new car home in the market.

    Working fine on my Hero with CM6.
