    Question Which Apps are the Safest Apps?

    Just a quick question to those of you that use apps in your car pc. Which apps do you think are the best combination of safety + functionality out there?

    Thanks!

    CFGPSEvents is completely automation based so it requires zero user input after initially configured.

    Freefone and RRMobile phone plugin get a nod too because they assist drivers with handsfree phone interfaces


    PS. How come i stole your avatar and mine lacks transparency lol

    Then I don't think you should have the MP3Car logo as your avatar.

    There are none.


    All apps will bring some kind of distraction with them.

    maybe the voice control apps, but even then just thinking of the command phrase you need to say to execute something can distract you.

    Speed camera warnings maybe, but again they can make you blase about your speed becasue you feel safe you won't get done for speeding. (till you coma across a new one at double the speed limit)


    Phone apps, again talking on the phone, even hands free, takes something away from your concentration on the driving.

    GPSEvents, even though all set up, by the very nature it alerts you to things and that will distract you.


    Not saying the above apps are not useful and worth having, but no apps are safe.
