At the start of the year, regulations around the use of mobile phones and driving were tightened to cover sending text messages or scrolling through your phone. Your phone must now by law be put away or in a cradle and you must use it on a hands-free basis. If you are seen touching your phone whilst driving, you can be fined. If you are unsure of the regulations and want some advice on how to place your mobile phone in your car you can talk to a Vodafone Store Near Me such as King Communication.
In some cases, you might want to use your mobile phone as a save nav to help you get to your destination. This could be by using Google Maps or it might be that you download an app that works in a similar way to a satnav. Either way, you need to make sure that you place your phone in a cradle, in a position that does not obstruct your view. You must also select your destination before you start your vehicle and if for any reason you need to adjust this you must find a safe place to stop the car before you do so.
If you are using Google Maps you might not be able to automatically reroute your journey if you come across traffic whereas satnav apps will do this for you. This means that if you turn off the main route, it will find another way to get you back onto the right roads to get to your destination safely.
