Re: I always thought...

Thing is, that the use of GPS and other assistive devices when done right can be a great boon. Let me use myself as an example:

I have a Ford Fusion w/SYNC, using SYNC I can answer calls, listen to internet radio in the car over USB (which nets me the song info on the display) and use a map app on my iPhone over the cars speakers.

Now I'm sure at this point you're going "you don't need that stuff"

But what if I told you that I have a physical disability that means I can't use my right hand for something as simple as using wiper controls if they are on the right hand side of the steering column?

See how the picture changes?

All I'm suggesting is that before saying that all of these advances are of no use, that you stop and think of other properly implemented uses because with assists from this technology, I can in fact concentrate on driving
