About the limitations of touch screen usage

Help: Touch screen can not be used while driving, how to lift the speed limit?
For your safety:touchscreen can only be operated when stationary.

Never had a warning like this. Wonder if this is some country specific regulatory compliance statement.

What if the passenger wants to operate the system? I have never seen this in the UK either.

Yeh as stated earlier sounds like a country specific regulation.

Are you by chance trying to touch the button to rearrange the tiles on the screen while driving? I ask because Iíve seen that message when I touched it once. All the remainder of the functions and touch capabilities work on mine while driving. In US too.
