They don’t make life easier.

You cannot trade off safety against complexity of use. So these new developments must have as a central goal simplicity of use.

We do NOT want a myriad of new flashing lights on our dashboards, or the car taking actions we don’t understand the reason for with out warning.

This is tough stuff, but a balance has to found.

First this it feature can however save life’s in accidents . Secondly it could can track a criminal or terrorists if system is active on a stolen car .
Don’t still have that It-feature which need gsm data ressources but I’ve the actual and standard feature when my mobile is connected via Bluetooth with the car and then in case of accident it will call automatically the emergency. I must truly say It’s a very nice feature for security actually . Costs ? Not at all coz that feature came standard when ordered !
The commission is right concerning security and it’s a realistic and very good advice for everyone .

Why not go for simple and stop this nonsense with more and more complicated rubbish or we will go for basic bog standard and put all the car makers out of business.
