Phones and driving do not mix, just like alcohol and being behind the wheel, although saying silly things on the phone to an ex-girlfriend/boyfriend after a few drinks do agree with one another. Scosche cellCONTROL intends to help make driving safer, where it disables unsafe phone applications when you are behind the wheel. This new system will take advantage of Bluetooth connectivity to prevent drivers from texting, sending email, and even make phone calls, although for those who are married, there is this app known as Wife 2.0 who ensures your phone remains out of reach from you as you need to keep your eyes peeled on the road, and hands on the wheel.
Back to the Scosche cellCONTROL, it relies on a simple one-time setup that ensures the designated mobile device is disabled each time the car moves. You can activate the safe driving system online here, followed by downloading the app onto your mobile device before installing the trigger unit into your vehicle’s standard OBD-II interface. The Scosche cellCONTROL can be picked up for $129.95 a pop.
