GPS: More dangerous than a cell phone
Yesterday, I finally took the plunge and purchased a automotive GPS. I now understand why they have a “feature” that prevents you from entering anything while in motion: the GPS is extremely distracting. I think it’s much worse than a mobile phone. At least with a mobile phone, I know where the buttons are, so I can push the buttons without looking at the device. But my new GPS has just one button to control the power. Everything else is controlled via a touch-screen, and there is NO safe way you can enter something on the touch-screen while driving. At least it provides spoken directions and a large screen, so once you setup the system it requires minimal interaction.
Note to self: NEVER operate the GPS controls while driving. Life is too short.
