You know your car has too many gadgets...

When you get some kind of business class in-flight entertainment touch pad device on your dashboard.

Can someone tells we the point of being able to play a movie in a two seater Smart?

The funny thing is when you start the engine the touch screen tells you to focus on the road.

My husband's head unit has the ability to play videos, but it is illegal here when driving. I did think his cut out as soon as you start driving and asked him if this was the case. The response was "ahem".

He's way too sensible to actually drive while playing a video though.

A driver being able to see a dvd screen has to be the most stupid thing in a car Apart from the driver who watches one
