im talking about the kind of car kits they were referring to. mounted cradle, a speaker, antenna coupler, power wire....they dont exsist for bluetooth. sure, theres a single piece thats bluetooth enabled, but its not the same style as they used to be.

is it still legal to use these Bluetooth wireless car kits in the states where "talking on the cell phone while driving" is illegal? If so, this seems to be a great opportunity for Bluetooth

For about two years it's prohibited to answer cell phone calls in Germany also.
I still keep my phone on while driving, and yes, I do answer the calls, but make it short. If the situation (the traffic) needs my concentration -- I just let it ring...

Lutz, thats a good idea (letting it ring) cause obviously nothing really comes before your own safety. I dont really know what the laws are here but i think its still legal to use them while driving, for now anyways. Its not only phones that distract people (as mentioned many times before by others), there is a number of things that can attract peoples attentions and therefore cause problems but it just seems easier to pin it on the use of cell phones until there banned while driving, then what do they blame accidents on?

Haha thats true, but those are all important things to us, are they not? Unlike some women who are distracted by shoes/clothing, make-up, etc lol. Whats more distracting is seeing everything you mentioned at once (hot pin-up girl driving your dream car and being chased/pulled over by police). Some things just seem worth the risk though.

To be honestly I'd never lost my focussing on the traffic, except for a great song on the radio. That's the reality.

You'll be surprised that even some (older) people over here got distracted to "beautiful landscapes" while driving 60mph on a high speed motorway called Autobahn .
