To add a Bluetooth device:

Add a Bluetooth device to Driving Mode if you want to trigger driving mode with your Automobile's Bluetooth feature

To unpair  Bluetooth when NOT driving:

If your earpiece Bluetooth triggers Driving Mode when NOT driving, unpair/disconnect the Bluetooth from Driving Mode in app Settings

NOTE: Driving mode is expected to pair with a car's Bluetooth. If you are using ANY device with Bluetooth, it will activate since Bluetooth can't tell the difference between driving and not with Bluetooth present. In that case: go to Main Menu >Settings>Driving Mode, there manually un-pair (un check) that device when not driving.
