    We have it. I don't use it because I don't know how DH uses it all the time and loves it.

    I have had it in previous cars and don't like it at all. DH loves it though.

    I'm totally against it. Me and DH have lived/worked in rural WA for 15+ years so we drive loads of kms and we both feel like it makes people really complacent drivers. Because people aren't having to think about controlling their speed they tend to 'kick back' and get their brain out of attentive driver mode.

    I don't believe it allows you to focus on things other than the speedo, you should be able to maintain the speed of the car without needing to watch your speedo, or a quick glance should suffice (which is healthy as you shouldnt stare straight ahead at the road when doing a long drive or you can get 'white line hypnosis')

    Have just spent two weeks driving around Ireland with friends and I had to bite my tongue every time the other driver switched it on (repeat to self 'must not be a backseat driver, must not be a backseat driver')

    I love it. I don't believe it makes me any less attentive

    DH put one in my car a couple of weeks ago. I was very 'meh' about him installing it (but he really wanted it) and now I love it! I use it every chance I get.

    Have it in both cars and love it. When I first used it (about 18 years ago!!!) in a work car, I hated it as felt I wasn't in control. You just have to persevere to get past that feeling. I haven't always had it, my previous 2 cars didn't, but glad we do now as do a lot of open road driving.
