5:56 pm
radio. it is to blend the smart phone with a car. burn in the smart phone application into the car and a safe way. it replaces the existing car radio and gives you a.m. and fm and so much more. once you plug in your car phones--once you put in your phone, you can interact with your radio on your phone. the touchscreen is your access point to your phone or the ipod touch. it would be safer to use this than trying to work your phone while driving. for now only certain applications work with this. but they expect hundreds plus thousands soon after that to be in the market. i got to test this like pandora, great for music. the gps drive, and the appstore is
5:57 pm
up and running for the radio, it also gives you access to music on the device, it has a built in blue tooth, you can make handsfree calls through the car speaker. think of the radio as a way to keep you connected to the smart phone while in the car. what i like best, it only lets you run applications that are relevant to driving when driving. it will not let you watch video, look at pictures are play games when the car is in motion. i think this is a safe way to work your smart phone from the dashboard. it is a good way to stay connected and run apps in your car. this will hit the market sometime in june, you'll have to have this installed, that will cost another $100. for now only works with the iphone and the ipod touch. for now but may be later it will work with others.
