Re: Android - bit of a toy OS, really.
I checked with the police because I was confused too.
The phone must be mounted on the dashboard, not in your hand - thats essential.
As long as its mounted, you can touch it - as long as it doesn't affect your driving. In that respect its no different to the distracting touch screens that now come in all new cars.
By the way - the Android Auto app is great - and yes I have i disabled the "OK Google" command.
