Do you guys not have in car kits for phones at all?
Apart from the wireless ones, we have ones where you get a little saddle to clip the phone into, a mic that attaches to the ceiling near the drivers side top corner of the windscreen and then attaches through the stereo speakers.... or it's own speaker.

They're really common, especially for company fleet cars where the employees have company issue phones too.

Then of course there's the simple hands free kit ... which is dubiously legal to use while driving.

some of the pro car kits can be 200$ plus install....nokia for example...that doesn't even include cost of the phone.

thats why bluetooth connectivity is such a handy thing to have.

I think that another possible thing that it could be good for is GPS navigation/palm pilots.....uploading schedules or addresses....that kind of thing....that's out of my realm, so no idea there.

some people may think driving with cellphones is stupid, but what i think goes above and beyond is actually getting caught talking on your cellphone while driving.

i agree, it would be good for tying your palmpilot or laptop into the already existing on-star systems. imagine how simple radio wiring diagrams would become. they could even use it for engine computers, and use blue chip technology for engine sensors. now we are talking expensive!

What, like getting caught because you're lying in a coma after you've just run into someone else ... who's also now in a coma.

yea thats what I was thinking...this technology may soon become very mainstream as people are forced to buy it as the only "legal" way to use their phones while driving...

... and because it's cool. I don't think you can rag on it just because you think its only purpose is to stop you being rebellious and driving with your phone in the car.
