Just one quick search showed the following statement in Georgia Bill 673 which went into effect in July 2018 - - -

 

"The hands-free law does NOT apply to the following electronic communication devices and the following devices can be used by the driver when on the road:  radio, citizens band radio, citizens band radio hybrid, commercial two-way radio communication device or its functional equivalent, subscription-based emergency communication device, prescribed medical device, amateur or ham radio device, or in-vehicle security, navigation, or remote diagnostics system."

Other states may have differing wording of their laws and should be researched individually.
