    Lately, every time I get in the car a tap the tablet to the NFC tag, nothing happens. know the tag works. I have to go into the settings and turn the NFC on, and it will then pick up the tag.

    Does the tablet or the OS turn the NFC on it's own for some reason?

    I think that when you go to Airplane Mode (Android 4.4) disabled the NFC stuff, and when turn Airplane Mode off, it doesn't turn it NFC back on. I think Android 5.0+ fixed that, but I decided to turn WiFi off directly instead of using Airplane mode, since I don't use any other wireless functions like Bluetooth.
