haha, o'rly? Good to know...
I use my phone navigation system when going to unfamiliar places, but as far as talking and such (on the phone while driving) I don't really do a ton of it anyway -- It really drives me nuts when ppl do. IMO even if you have a handsfree headset or something related built into your car, or voice recognition you STILL have to concentrate on the conversation/task at hand. This means < 100% concentration on your driving...even if its 99% I feel that is more dangerous than it has to be.
I totally agree, having come to the conclusion after nearly being killed by multiple people with cell handsets glued to their heads.
I would never use one of these. Why? Because I *know* I'm already a crappy driver, and I don't hate YOU, YOUR CHILDREN, and LIFEFORMS IN GENERAL.
I would rather we skip the two-way conversation part of our cars' evolution and jump right on to the "It drives me where I tell it to" portion of the program.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Voice Navigation sounds good, but it'll be impossible to fully perfect it against errors.
