What is the UK law on using your phone in the car?
The Highway Code, road safety, and vehicle rule state that it is illegal to use your phone while driving a car or riding a motorcycle unless you have hands-free access, such as a Bluetooth headset, voice command or dashboard mount. It also states that when using hands-free you must stay in control of the vehicle at all times, the police can stop you if they think you are distracted and not in control.
The UK law still applies in the following situations, stopped at traffic lights, queuing in traffic and supervising a learner driver.
There are already a few options available to you. You can:
Either buy a 2018 BMW or you could look at the SEAT Ateca or Leon which was being released at the end of 2017. To use it in the SEAT it does need to be coupled with an Android device.
For those of you not in the market for buying a new car currently, you could buy a Garmin Speak, Garmin and Alexa have teamed up. By using your smartphone with Garmin Speak, using data from your smartphone and connect via Bluetooth or AUX, you enable Amazon Alexa to stream audio through.
The final option you have is to set up your Amazon Dot in your car one thing that SEAT did was experimented during R&D by looking at installing the Echo into their vehicles. What they learnt was that it wouldn't meet the demands of vibrations and temperature.
Some of the tasks you already do on your smartphone. Below is a list of what you could do if you had Alexa in your car.
