I agree with you CrackWheel.
The day after I got a BB for my son I told him, don't drive and read. That very nigh I caught him doing it, smacked him in the back of the head. The next morning he smacks me in the back of the head, when I asked him why, he said, "you're driving and reading!"
DonMcD, Unfortunately I too must drive and read at the same time. In my line of work (Search & Rescue) I do not have the luxury of stopping to read an email or answer a call.
I purchased a BB Stand and a Laptop stand for vehicles, and modified both to fit next to the steering wheel, but directly in my line of sight, allowing me to look at the road and the BB at the same time, for phone calls I use and earpiece. Also, I rearranged the Icons so I know at all times just how may clicks I need to turn the wheel to get to a specific icon. Drawback is if you don't return to the starting point, your count is thrown off. Don't give up on the BB, you find your ways around it.
