Re: Phone use (again )

The rules in Spain concerning phone use are strict. No satnav may be adjusted whilst the vehicle is in motion. Interesting. What does it say about interacting with a cars built in touchscreen? And then how does it differentiate between changing nav settings or HVAC controls? (given some cars like T...
