Get used to it
Distraction or not, this kind of in-car functionality isn't going away. Automakers are now software and consumer electronics companies. The driver "experience" they allow is becoming just as important as their car designs, horsepower, and safety features.

Re: This will revolutionize cars like the ipod did to MP3 players (link)
This post reminds me of when Peter Hinssen spoke at the InformationWeek Conference several years ago, and he poked fun at the fact that his iPhone told him "this device was not compatible" with the iPhone -- that it was his new $40,000 car was a "device" that needed to figure out how to fit into the Apple world. But that's exactly how it's playing out.

Safety factor
Studies show that it's not just physically handling the phone that's a problem, it's the distraction. Messaging, even hands free, is distracting. Yes, hands free is better than holding the device, but it's still problematic.
