Thereby answering the calls, sending messages, selecting an address from the calendar, and navigating on unknown route turns seamlessly easy task.
In addition, all this without getting your eyes off the windshield. The app developers have taken into consideration all the safety guidelines prescribed by the automotive industry during its designing stage. Hence, be assured about protection.
