Google updates Car Home for Android app

Google has released a new version of its Car Home for Android that opens up customization. Available for the Nexus One and Motorola Droid, the newest version lets users customize the shortcuts on the Car Home screen, with quicker access to apps and information on the smartphones while they're driving. The app is launched either by docking the smartphone in its car dock or now by pairing it with a Bluetooth headset.

Users can also set their own wallpapers for the app and set the color of the shortcuts. Developers should also welcome the new changes, as any app that supports Car Mode will be shown in the Car apps category so they can be quickly added as a shortcut.

Nexus One and Motorola Droid users need to have Android 2.2 to support Car Home for Android, which is available as a download from the Android Market.
