Comparison of smartphone options for in-car use

 

Unlike other phone mounts, a Wheeldock enables a driver to more easily access all of of a phone's functions making it quicker and much easier to interact with your phone over the course of a drive.

Windscreen mounted holders can often be poorly located, either blocking the windscreen, or off to the side which requires more effort and discomfort for the driver to effortlessly use all the phones functions easily.  In comparison, Wheeldock locates your phone in an ideal location, right in front, inches away, it makes it far easier to use the phone, it's even better than holding it in front of you. Importantly, Wheeldock's position maintains the road ahead in the peripheral aspect of driver's vision so when the car ahead begins to drive, you notice and move along improving the traffic flow for everyone...

 

While Bluetooth connectivity is great, it's really only for phone calls. It won't let you check Facebook, and can't help as a GPS.  Wheeldock allows you to use ALL your phone's standard features, including GPS and internet based services, which means you're more connected while you drive and won't miss a thing and make better use of the time you're driving. 

Many expensive and complex in-car systems are based around the centre console screen, not because it's better for a driver, but mainly because that's were car makers have the space to locate a screen.  No matter how good the in-car systems are, they just don't work as well as your phone.  Wheeldock enables you to use ALL of your phones features and easy to access and use.

Note: Bluetooth and Centre screen options have been assessed on the basis that these options do not in themselves provide a fixed mounting for the phone. Consequently, it was assumed these options resulted in the phone being either loose in the cabin, or in a drivers clothing pocket or bag.

Other notes:
* a minimum load force weighting of 200kgs to 400kgs was used as a benchmark to reduce projectile risk.
# normal driving vision range assumed to be an area of the  windscreen 120° side to side, 60° up and down, from the eye level of the driver seated approximately 25cm behind the wheel of average height and at mid point of seat height adjustment.
^ While some cars include smartphone connectivity as “standard”, it was assumed that the vehicle price would be otherwise less costly without the addition of factory fitted centre screen and phone connections.  The “cost” was considered as the average of comparative available “option” values.
