Doing anything other than calling people with your phone, whilst you are
"operating a motor vehicle" is illegal.

If you're too lazy to click on the link:

<article>
City Council unanimously passed an ordinance to ban using a "hand-held
mobile communication device to send, read or write a text message, view
pictures or written text, whether transmitted by Internet or other
electronic means, engage in gaming or any other use of the device,
besides dialing telephone numbers or talking to another person, while
operating a moving motor vehicle."
</article>

So you cannot use any smartphone technologies, whether safe, useful or
otherwise, whilst operating your car.

Stopped might be okay, since they specify "moving." Dare you not adjust
your google maps navigation while your driving though!
