Kills mobile phones while you drive

Scosche has an interesting device that owners of fleet vehicles and parents of driving teens might want to check out. The device is called the cellControl by Scosche. It’s a device that plugs into the OBD-II port under the dash of your car. When it senses that the car is driving it disables unsafe aspects of mobile phones.

It will disable things like text messaging, email, the ability to make phone calls and more. The only issue I see is if an accident occurs and the engine is still running and tires are moving, the driver might not be able to call for help. The user does have to download an app onto the mobile phone for the system to work. The camera is also disabled.

The system will work with 1200 different cell phones and will work with all vehicles back to 1996. The cellControl is available directly from Scosche for $129.95. It works with Android, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Symbian S60, and some Brew devices. It doesn't list iPhone compatibility.
