- Open the Verizon “Messages+” app.
- Select the “Menu” button located at the upper-left corner of the screen.
- Tap “Driving Mode“.
- Driving Mode is enabled when paired with an audio device via Bluetooth. Tap “Add device” to use Driving Mode with the chosen device. Uncheck any that are checked if you wish to disabled it.
- Check the “Driving Mode Auto-Reply” to enable it, uncheck it to disable it.
When enabled you can select “Driving Auto-Reply Message” to set the auto reply message you desire.
