This issue comes up all the time, and there seems to be no easy way to handle this problem. If they disable all phones during movement, then passengers will be stopped from use also.
I agree, Im also against disabling phones while driving. However I think in-dash devices are different. And thats where finding the balance to properly implement this is important. The software should use feature-based control, not device-based as seems to be what I hear the most.
I would imagine a profile while moving something like:
Enable: phone, GPS, video recording, appointment reminders
Disable: web browsing, pics/video watching, type-texting, appointment management, games, etc
I think the "cell-phone while driving" discussion is different than the "in-dash while driving" discussion. Obviously related, of course, but different.
