[ Drivemode raises $6.5M in Series A ]
Drivemode has raised $6.5 million in Series A funding.
Founded in 2014, Drivemode is one of the most popular apps for use in cars on Google Play, with over one million app downloads and active users spread across 180 countries. The app is designed to reduce distractions for drives via an eyes-free interface designed to access smartphone functions like navigation messaging, calls and more entirely via voice.
The nature and source of the funding suggests Drivemode has ambitions well beyond its existing consumer app.
