How is this even legal? I still don't understand why driver operated touchscreens are allowed to react to touches while the vehicle is in motion.
Some Mazdas disable them when you’re driving, there’s no reason they can’t all do that.

From the Android link posted up thread...

Android Auto was designed with safety in mind. With a simple and intuitive interface, integrated steering wheel controls and powerful new voice actions, it's designed to minimise distraction so that you can stay focused on the road.

Which is a bunch of horse dung. It's designed to encourage you to use a bloody phone, driving distracted, one of the #fatal4, when you should be focusing on driving (and it could well be literally bloody once you crash).
Standard in many cars now, and it lets you use 'some of your favorite apps' - frightening, time for twitter and facebook anyone !
