@nimantha.d I agree with you on that. so many gadgets are made to make life and tasks easier but abusive use of these gadgets can make things turn the other way round.

@Kayode: Who else other than the driver itself. I think it should be strictly implemented or else it will go out of control

@ARIELLA, who is to be blamed for the damage(s) caused by the use of the infotainment by a distracted and reckless driver?

@SP, while all these gadgets have their advantages and disadvantages, we still can not expect cars to come out with less gadgets in this age. Guide lines would rather be made to guide driver's conducts.

"Cars infotainment having access to driver's smartphone means a person can cntinue doing his office or other work even if he is driving. One way its good but other way a person can neveer relax. "

Sp, it may not be in that way. It can access media files from smartphones to play through the car infotainment module.

@SP another concern some people have is that all these features contribute to distracted driving. There already has been at least one class action lawsuit filed against Ford for its infotainment system: http://www.mcmc-law.com/personal-injury-blog/ford-infotainment-system-crashes-could-lead-to-actual-crashes-lawsuit-alleges/

I was interested to learn who the main players ar ein this market and what the standard physical interface is in the modern car.  Is it simply the old slot that used to house the 6x1.5 in radio cassette (I can't imagine it is)?
