Hi. I get bored while driving long distances and would like to have an app which I can use microphone to do a chat similar to a cb radio. Maybe even with multiple channels. Obviously with no or little screen input to distract while driving. Does anyone know an app that would fit the bill?

No, I mean something more like a cb radio that a trucker would use. Allows a voice group talk on a channel/station/frequency. Wouldn't require looking at the screen other then maybe a push to talk type button

As a followup, I found an app called iPTT that fit the bill perfectly.

The app appears to only be for iPhone. But it can be a group of iPhones, not just one to one communication

You actually bought it? That's what I read on the reviews so I didn't even bother trying

Free homie.
And there is this English channel I was listening to last night, it was quite entertaining, i would have paid $0.99 for it.
Very cool idea / app. Just not executed very well.

Try an app simply called "CB". It's free, and super easy to use, basically just a PTT button without a ton of distracting extras. There are actually quite a few truckers I've overheard on it. Plus it's got some great reviews - the only bad one was from a guy who didn't realize you couldn't talk to real CBs with it!

Lol! Yesterday I heard a couple of rednecks very politely tell some foul-mouthed kid to get off "their" channel. Then they went back to talking about what trucks they're going to buy next and what dip they chew.
