A survey by American Automobile Association(AAA) states that the usage of satellite navigation is so complicated that it requires the driver to take their eyes off for more than 40 seconds which increases the risk of accidents.
“Drivers want technology that is safe and easy to use, but many of the features added to infotainment systems today have resulted in overly complex and sometimes frustrating user experiences for drivers,” said Marshall Doney, President of the AAA.
Automobile manufacturers are requested to make a more intuitive and innovative solution to the satellite navigation integrations in cars. Voice recognition and access to information prove as distracting as using mobile phones while driving.
“Keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel” is the AAA’s advice.
