The navigator becomes the most sought-after co-pilot to guide us towards unknown routes when we are traveling. However, despite being an ally on the road that saves time when traveling and reduces fuel consumption, it is worth remembering that it must be used responsibly to avoid distractions at the wheel.
BE CAREFUL WITH PLACING IT IN THE AIRBAG OUTLET
The navigator cannot be placed anywhere in the car. It must be strategically located so as not to reduce the driver's visibility and always fixed to the manufacturer's official mechanism to prevent it from falling causing distractions. In addition, it must be installed where it cannot block the airbag outlet in the event of an accident.
PROGRAM THE ROUTE IN ADVANCE
To avoid any confusion behind the wheel, the route must be programmed before starting to drive or while the car is stationary. To explain it more graphically: getting distracted for "only" three seconds by manipulating the navigator at a speed of 120 km / h means traveling a distance of more than 100 meters and missing five out of ten signals. It also reduces the ability to react, increasing the risk of accidents.
THE INSTRUCTIONS, BY VOICE
For the same reason, it is advisable to block the use of the browser while driving because they are devices with unfriendly interfaces, which require some concentration to include the addresses; an attention that we must not take away from the road. Of course, you have to follow the voice prompts without "falling into the temptation" of looking at the screen and thus focus 100% on the wheel.
WHEN GETTING OUT OF THE CAR, DO NOT LEAVE IT IN THE SUN
It is also important that when getting out of the car, we remember to keep it in a safe place so that the navigator is not left in the sun or subjected to high temperatures inside because it can cause damage to the components of the navigation system.
