TextBuster Text Blocking System - Put An End To Distracted Driving

According to the AAA, texting while driving is now officially the most dangerous distraction drivers face on the road. TextBuster was designed to prevent vehicle accidents while also safeguarding your loved ones, employees and everyone that operates a motorized vehicle!

Designed to eliminate distractions while driving, the TextBuster sends a blocking signal via Bluetooth® to the user's phone. This is done automatically every time the vehicle is powered on. The TextBuster will not interfere with any other hands-free or Bluetooth® items in the vehicle.

The TextBuster is a patented device that will disable the data functions to the driver's phone only while the vehicle is running and the Bluetooth® control module is powered on. TextBuster prevents the driver from accessing all text, email or internet functions while driving their vehicle. TextBuster does not block incoming or outgoing phone calls or navigation features.

The TextBuster Anti-Texting System is a revolutionary combination of hardware and software aimed at curbing the unsafe habit of texting while driving. Designed to work with Android and BlackBerry cellular phones, the TextBuster intelligently eliminates access to a driver's texting function while the vehicle is running. When the vehicle and its TextBuster module are not powered on, the phone user has access to all normal features including texting, web browsing and games. Once the phone pairs with the TextBuster control module, the user can still make and receive telephone calls and use GPS navigation (if equipped), but the ability to send or receive text message from the phone will be blocked.

When the vehicle and TextBuster Bluetooth ® control module are powered on, the phone will display the screen you see to the left. While text messages are still being received, the user will not be able to retrieve them until the vehicle has been turned off for 30-45 seconds and the phone un-pairs from the TextBuster module. If the user decides to make a phone call, or to use their phone's GPS function (data charges may apply), they are given the option of doing so by selecting one of the two options present on the screen at all times.

If the user decides they need to make a phone call while driving, tapping the "Make a phone call" button on the TextBuster's home screen will allow them to do so. The phone's dial pad will be displayed and the user will have access to their full list of contacts, but text messages will still be safely hidden way and inaccessible until the vehicle has been turned off.
