meh. not unless you're in fifth. i still eat while i drive and roll through the gears. as for texting, it's either at a stop light or a one word text in fifth (or any place safe from other people). I don't understand why people say it keeps the texting away, if you're not shifting constantly like you were in a race it really doesn't matter. but why text when you have something enjoyable to drive?
