A driver using a hand held device is dangerous but I do not see how someone else in the car using one would be. I use a build in Nav Systems in my tow vehicle and I am sure the people in other cars are safer when it is helping me navigate new territory.

There are bigger things to be concerned about.
Even setting the destination on your phone's GPS HAS to be safer than THAT!

but you're not supposed to set a route on the fly with built-in systems either, and many manufacturers lock that out or only allow you to use voice commands while in motion.
or argue with your talking GPS!

Yes, me too! And I feel sorry for those folks who are unaware of the technology.
