Almost everyone has to use the cellular device to run errands, catch up with friends, keep contact with family or going to a job site. What the bad thing is that texting while driving is dangerous.

Also now days the hands free are not only for making a call anymore. It's like having a mini computer with you all the time. Adults used it also for social networking, receive and send emails, Sending SMS and more.
I am privileged to have friendships with a number of new hearing aid. I talk with them using Auslan (Australian Sign Language). I have learned that there are vast differences between hearing and deaf communities and cultures. I know that many hearing people have a lack of understanding of deafness. My aim is to increase understanding.
Get a hands free device (Bluetooth headset). Research has found that by using a hands-free device, drivers are spending less time handling the device such as dialing or picking up the cell phone. Even though this will not completely eliminate the distractions, it will certainly make the trip safer for others and yourself.
One noticeable difference is that Apple is dropping the use of Google Maps on the new iPhone 5. The new Apple system will allow you to use the App or Siri to show you maps and even 3-D photo imagery to show you where you want to go. It will also provide voice turn-by-turn directions. This means when using your new iPhone 5 hearing aids your Ford Sync system, you will want to push and hold the "Home" button on the face of your phone to access Siri. You will hear her voice come over the vehicle's sound system. You can speak to her to ask for directions (or whatever). Siri will tell you the instructions and ask questions as needed. Just push and hold the "Phone" icon on the steering wheel (or center console) to finish your session with Siri.
