    Abstract

    This article focuses on three widely used in-vehicle technologies (IVT) - cruise control, navigation system and mobile phone - among Finnish car-drivers. The results of a focus group study carried out in 2009 are analyzed together with the results of a standardized internet survey carried out in 2010. The findings of these studies are presented together to create a profound picture of the patterns of use of the systems. The results indicate that these systems are considered useful but drivers also know that over-reliance on them can be dangerous.
