    Wreck due to carpc?

    Just wondering if anyone has wrecked or had a "close one" due to messing/watching their carpc.

    LOL - hahahaha... never a wreck or anything but im "pretty safe" - well, i'm as cautious as you can be while using a computer while driving.

    i only use my computer if: im at a red light, if im on a highway straightaway and there are no cars immediately around me, etc. whenever im punching in directions, i always pull over or stop, etc. i never punch in an address while typing lol. i know, im overly cautious, but i'd rather be safe than sorry, bishes!

    i dont know how you can drive a manual trans and use a car pc. i would get so ******* tired of all the arm movements. and im not lazy!@#
    Duct tape and a Bandana for the win, b!shes!!!

    its not as hard as you think... however, driving, shifting, typing, and changing the song on the screen makes me go over the yellow line just a little bit.

    First off let me start by saying i try not to use my carpc while moving. i wait till stop signs or stop lights. or if i have to useing while moving i wait till there is no one around that i could run into. But there was one time when my girlfriend was with me and she could not figure out how to do something on it and i was trying to explain it but she did not get it, so i reached over and did it for her real fast and the next thing i know i hit the gravel on the side of the road. no biggy i just drive right back out and kept on crusing but my girlfriend FREAKS. she starts yelling at me about it and now when ever she is in the car i am not alowd to do anything with it.

    I was on a long trip the other day and didn't know the city that we were heading in to. Well near there I stopped for gas so the PC went into hibernate for a little bit when I shut the car off. I get back in, PC resumes and when I switch to nav it couldn't find the GPS. So I was troubleshooting Windows XP in the Device Manager at 60MPH. Not once did I swerve and my passenger was never concerned. Hooray for peripheral vision.

    I did almost hit a pole while leaving the park the other day though, but I was changing songs while avoiding an idiot on a bike that thought one way didn't apply to him.
