Smartphone Cradle available in SA for BMW motorcycles and scooters

We are really slaves to our smartphones – we tap at our screens every four minutes as we suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out) – and we rely on them to in most of our life situations. We use them to navigate, telephone friends, enjoy music and much more else – the skills of modern smartphones are multiple. By Staff Writer

However, as the smartphone continues to advance it has not been made part of a motorcycle or scotters.

But BMW Motorrand is changing this. It has designed a smartphone cradle being able to fasten smartphones up to a size of 5 inches quickly and safely to the handlebar clamps for optimum rider’s readability and handling.

The Smartphone Cradle will be available in South Africa from the 1 July 2016 for R2474,24 including VAT.

Installed in a robust plastic hardcase the smartphone is not only perfectly protected against dust and water, but offers best possible readability, too, thanks to an antireflection flex foil see-through vision panel.

Power supply is made by the onboard socket (special accessory). Charging is done via micro-USB or – if available – the wireless way according to Qi standards. In this connection the necessary energy transmission is done by electromagnetic induction. A light-emitting diode informs about the charging state.

An anti-slip, vibration and shock impeding gel pad shelf ensures a safe and careful installation as well as warmth draining for the smartphone while riding.
