Hi all, I already looked into another themes and I think there are no active themes for a long time. Last questioned about 2013-2014, so I am asking again in 2019.

I would very welcome some driving mode, like it was on Windows Phoneimage description

I think most important things are:

- shortcut to some navigation software (poormaps, or I use - configurable of course, user select the one he uses most

- contacts shortcut for dialling contacts or numbers, maybe shortcut for FastDial would be great

- messages shortcut for reading incoming sms

- date, time, speed maybe (when GPS on)

- to be completely controllable by one hand

I use one-earphoned headset, so this driving mode should be great for me and more others :) Does some exist or is there someone to make one?

and one more thing that came to my mind - shortcut to bt options to pair headset :)

This is a subject close to my heart as I use my phone as a infotainment system while driving.

There's a rather extensive question about this subject.... duplicate?

We already have one half of that image, called 'Homescreen' - switching on/starting the app could take you to your regular Homescreen but it now has 4 bold buttons, like we see in the image and is all a bit bolder and easier to read at a glance.

Basically all components required for this exist in SFOS already, shouldn't be too hard to achieve......on your marks, get set, CODE!!!!...and close this question as duplicate, as suggested above.

git is good suggestion

what kind of package can we expect?

it has to be installed manually at the moment. I need someone who will make RPM for it.
