using vehicle operations adjustments on screens

Just a quick question.

For vehicles that have certain operations such as climate control, seat heaters, etc integrated into the touchscreen, would they be illegal to use? Im very familiar with the mva section about using devicea but after reviewing it, i noticed it did not clarify that specific section.

I am aware that phone, radio and navis are a no no

Well if navigation is illegal to use while driving, why is the radio, climate and phone operations NOT, even though they use the same 8" screen in my car

I really, really want to know what idiots decided that things like HVAC and radio should go on a touch screen in a car.

The idiots who calculate that touchscreens are more likely to break down and require someone to go to the stealership to repair. At time of sale, they'll tell you should get the extended warranty citing how everything on the car is so advanced now and any out of warranty repair will be able to justify the cost of the extended warranty.

If your mechanical HVAC knob broke, you can fix it yourself or it wouldn't cost too much to take it some random mechanic. Your touchscreen breaks down, you lose your HVAC, radio, and everything else there, you'll probably be more desperate to fix, so guess where the most likely place you'll go is?

Derp, I can't believe I missed that obvious an answer. I absolutely hate hate hate touchscreens. People seem to think they're this magical tech that's an upgrade so mfr's slap them on every piece of shit they can, but all they do is make things worse.

I've been wondering the same thing - because I have heard of people getting tickets for using their on-screen navigation. If this is so, it would suck to own a Tesla; I guess you can't change anything while actually driving your car as it is all touch screen.

I'm sure the law will be amended or if ticketed for something like that it will be thrown out. If basic functions of your vehicle are through a multi function display then I don't believe that it is/should be illegal to operate them.
Many navigation systems in new vehicles will tell you not to operate them while driving the car or to pull over when you wish to use them.

No, that would be classified as driving with undo care and attention if they were ever to get pulled over.

I also like that it's illegal to have a phone sitting loose in a cup holder playing music where it's out of sight, but it's legal to mount it up on the dash at eye level or suction cup it to the windscreen where it blocks your view.

Not actually legal to have it blocking your view...

You know what I mean - it's legal to have it stuck somewhere to the windshield.

Explain to me please why it's illegal to stick my phone in the cup holder and have it play back music? Maybe the bureaucrat who wrote the legislation has an investment in ProClip.

Am I missing something here? Or am I just stupid for responding to another Seberry post?

If you aren't handling the phone, and it is just sitting in the cup holder there shouldn't be any problem. I pull my phone out of my pocket, and put it in the cup holder every time, because its uncomfortable in my pocket (HTC one M7 with a bulky case).

On that same note, what are you guys talking about the navigation unit and built in features of the car you are allowed to use, any features you aren't supposed to use while in motion (like the navigation) lock out when you are moving. So there is no problem using anything in the car that came from the factory.

No, you're not reading it incorrectly - if the phone is sitting there playing music, it must be securely fastened to the vehicle. It can't be loose.
