  • Obviously, listening to music
  • Informational talk shows
  • Listen to podcasts
  • Audiobooks
  • Learn a new language (music or lessons)
  • Make a drink or food stop (plus you can let the traffic decrease depending on timing)
  • Call to catch up with an old friend or family member (with a hands-free kit)
