Is Stephen Fry not aware that it is illegal in California (and maybe other States) to have anything such as a GPS/SatNav fixed to your windscreen?

I don't know if Mr. Fry is aware of this fact but I can say that I never heard this before and may I ask you one question? How do you use a nav/gps or something similar if you are not allowed to fix it to your windscreen? I wonder because in Europe many people are using portable systems and where else should these be fixed to?

First it was the watch, now it's SatNav, what will his crime be tomorrow? Perhaps a dastardly plan for world domination. I can imagine it now, Stephen brainstorming with a freeware mind mapping programme, preparing to reveal his next wave of crime.

California law now allows things attached to the windshield on the lower section on the passenger side only, it can in no way blocked any of the view out of the car. And should not be operable while the car is in motion, no pushing buttons while driving.

Oh dear. In that case, I have inadvertently broken California state law myself on occasion, while setting up my mother-in-law's Magellan. I'd better turn myself in to the Santa Clara county sheriff's department next time I'm down there.
