Scosche CellControl automatically limits cellphone functionality when driving

Dongle cellcontrol

“Some manufacturers are bringing smartphone controls to the dashboard in order to prevent distracted driving, but accessory manufacturer Scosche is going in a different direction with CellControl, a device that disables many smartphone functions when you’re in the car. The system consists of a specialized mobile app and a trigger dongle that plugs into your car’s OBD-II interface. After registration and set-up are complete, the trigger sends a Bluetooth signal to your phone whenever the vehicle is in motion, automatically turning off email, texting, web browser, and app capabilities. Access to your device’s music library is still allowed, as is calling — assuming you’re using a hands-free headset, of course.”
