    Hello.

    Is it possible to use iPhone 4S' Maps apps (Google's and Apple's), to
    check the real-time traffic maps, while driving a car and talking
    through its Bluetooth? iPhone seems to stuck on the phone call and
    single tasking? :(

    Thank you in advance. :)

  2. If it's CDMA (Verizon & Sprint), probably not; if it's AT&T and
    T-Mobile, yes.

    Please let me know where and when you expect to be on the road
    multitasking on your iPhone while driving so that I can be some miles
    away from you. Thank you.

    depending on the carrier, you may not have simultaneous voice & data,
    but that doesn't really matter unless you're on the phone the entire
    time. the info can be updated when you disconnect.

    anyway, the app you want is waze, which uses their own maps and has
    real time crowd sourced traffic as well as warnings for collisions,
    disabled cars on the side of the road (which can sometimes cause
    problems) and cops.

    FWIW, I agree. Anything at all that takes ones concentration away from
    driving is a giant and sometimes deadly minus, and one becomes suitable
    for a Darwin Award. That would be fine except when others are involved.

    The trouble with that line is that talking on the phone
    is no worse than talking to someone else in the car
    and plenty manage to do that safely all the time.

    Is it possible to use iPhone 4S' Maps apps (Google's and Apple's), to
    Will that let the user still view the traffic report maps while using
    the phone via BlueTooth when driving?

    Yep, because they use different technology in their networks.

    yes. all traffic needs is a connection every so often, so if your calls
    are short, it will work just fine.

    contrast that with streaming audio which requires a constant connection
    or it won't work.

    Is it possible to use iPhone 4S' Maps apps (Google's and
    Ah. I wonder if future CDMA versions will fix this. Verizon only works
    well in this home rural area due to the mountains and trees. :/

    it did with svdo, but cdma is end of life, so it doesn't matter
    anymore. it's going away.

    lte is the future, and verizon has pretty much deployed lte everywhere.

    cdma is just a fallback for voice until volte is deployed which has
    just begun.

    Wow, carriers make the differences?
    So, LTE and newer iPhones (e.g., 6) can do it?

    it depends on the lte phone.

    with lte, everything is data (there is no separate voice).

    until now, lte phones only supported data, with a second radio for
    voice (gsm/hspa or cdma depending on carrier). although the iphone 5
    had a second radio, there wasn't a second antenna for cdma, so you only
    had one or the other. for many other phones, the necessary hardware was
    there so it could do both.

    the iphone 6 supports voice over lte (volte) which eliminates the need
    of the second radio and you can get both at the same time (it's really
    only one, technically). however, volte is only starting to be deployed,
    so coverage is limited for now but that will soon change.

    Wow, this is getting confusing and complex. Verizon Wireless + iPhone 6
    can do it if VoLTE. What if there is no VoLTE for these two
    combinations?

    the iphone 6 supports volte, but if verizon hasn't deployed it in your
    area, then it's not going to work, in which case you'd be restricted to
    one or the other.

    you'll have to contact verizon to find out if volte is available in
    your area and when to expect it if it isn't.

  19. I disagree. Talking or listening to the radio is different than
    fiddling with any device, including the radio, while driving. Human
    multitasking is a horse**** concept. We reach the limit of that
    horse**** when we try to drive with one hand and do anything at all,
    including eating, with the other.
    I can smell, hear, see and touch a experience. I can't split them.
    Driving and fiddling with a device or radio knob is splitting one
    sense, and I don't think that can occur with concurrent rational
    thought. Combine all senses at once. Fine. Split one sense during this
    and all senses have to try two experiences. Not fine.
    I'm sure there are anecdotal stories that refute me. Scholars are
    surely studying this, since people are getting killed in surprising
    numbers while crossing the street with earbuds in and rocking out.

    There won't be any, the world is moving to LTE now.
    More strictly CDMA needs less bases
    than GSM which has a digital cliff.
