Distracted Driving Device Allows GPS functionality While Driving

How many here would consider adding this device to their vehicle?

I suspect it won’t be long before the government requires auto makers to install such a product on all new vehicles.

Driver / Passenger

I wonder how this can determine if you are the driver or a passenger. Perhaps you can disable the app when you are a passenger.

why bother to spend money on it

why bother to buy it when you can get an app which detects your movement and decide what you can or can not do..

Teen drivers.

I can see how this device might be of interest to some parents of teen drivers who don't trust that their teen will always use good judgment when adults are not present to monitor their driving.

This device would disable

This device would disable all devices in a car, so a navigator would be unable to do internet searches, reservations and communications. I think it's a great idea for a car that will be provided to teens and young drivers that won't accept NO for an answer.

I think the major market for these is corporate fleets where policy prohibits placing calls or texts while driving. Many companies are moving towards not even allowing hands-free devices.

I think just as GPS have a safety lockout when driving that can be opted out, most people will find a way around these devices too.

not sure

I'm am not sure what my feelings are on that one!
it is like saying every car should have a breathalyzer in it!
just sayin...

As long as phone still works

Don't like people using cell while driving but in emergency it should be working, such as road rage.

Would I pay extra for blocking device, no, there are ways to see if kids are texting while driving.

Can't Support This

This is just trying to prevent stupidity from demonstrating Darwinism. If someone has to do this, what else is the person doing while driving? Perhaps the privilege of driving needs to be revoked.

Distracting

Nannys are at it again.

All cell phones should be put in a bag & sealed before entering car.

No radios, cd players, GPS devices or anything to distract driver.

No kids allowed either. They are REALLY distracting.

And just to be safe.... no dang hamburgers either.

I have a Toyota Highlander and the nav unit greys-out when driving (got it before I discovered a Garmin) - finally developed a hack to override.
