    Just did the developer GDR3, all is good. However I was disappointed to learn that driving mode -requires- a Bluetooth connection.

    First off what about those of us who don't have Bluetooth capabilities in their vehicle?

    Also, I was hoping to use this as a profile of sorts. To turn on when I'm very focused at work, or out jogging.

    I'm getting a pair of Bluetooth headphones soon, I guess I'll have to wait to pair it with them to enable driving mode.

    Odd choice to make it a requirement IMHO.

    I think the idea was to make this something that would be triggered automatically when the phone connects to your in-car Bluetooth device.

    No I know that, and that in itself is a good idea. What I was saying is that making it ONLY work with bluetooth is an absolutely terrible idea.

    I agree EchoOne, I don't own a car but I'm into Car2Go so I decided to try and set it up before I drove out today. Boom! It asks for a Bluetooth device and I can't move forward.... I mean.... I don't own any Bluetooth devices.... so now I can't use this feature. Funny enough, while using the GPS almost home here comes a phonecall.... and I'm like.. yay....
