    Im thankful my trainer never allowed me to even use a bluetooth headset while I was in the driver set . For 11 hours a day I sat in that drivers seat &he was in the passenger the entire time . Saved me a lot grief once on my own

    Odd that earbuds are illegal? Didn't realize that nor was taught that. Headsets I don't like with my glasses. I use only my right one while driving. But if im doing something that requires both (movie, working out) I enable ambient mode allows me to hear crystal clear what's around me and talk to someone without a problem.

    (I'll add that on occasion I'll pop the other one in too if the call requires it. Student loans usually bugging me lol. But still can hear perfect)

    I’m 52 yrs old and have never tried it but I’ve seen it.

    No way in heck I could get my foot up there while driving. If I did it’d never come down until I stopped and fell out of the door.
