Already is. Takes too much time away from paying attention to the driving requirement.

Ive been thinking that for a few years, and one has to ask how much money the gov. or even insurance companies makes off the tickets/cases of cell related issues vs just making phones that wont work while in motion or some sort of filter.

I think my state law for distracted driving is 3 seconds off of watching the road no matter what it is but ive had friends stopped for drinking coffee while driving, so.

Just another half/azzed regulated thing/problem that keeps getting worse and no one really seems to care as long as some profit from it.

When I had Uconnect on my Scatpack, I could answer texts and calls with the steering wheel controls. It even told me who was contacting me.

My car doesn't have touch screen stuff but I think people place a lot more focus and urgency on texts on their phones than gps or radio touchscreen settings.

I've been asking the same thing.
I hate that stupid monitor. As I'm going down the road I glance over and It's telling me to keep my eyes on the road.
How ever in order to clear it I have to take my eyes off the road and touch the screen. HOW Freaking stupid.
Then when I'm backing up it about blinds you because of the darn camera.

OH HOW DID we ever get a long with out this stuff.
