The Big-Rig MagMount was designed for truckers whose rig has storage compartments located above the driver. The Big-Rig MagMount uniquely mounts in a couple of minutes (with zero interior alterations) inside the typical storage compartment just above the driver found in many OTR rigs. It has a drop-down arm with magnet on the end to which any mag-ready mobile device up to 20 oz can be instantly attached (and instantly removed) with one hand .
The drop-down arm rotates out of the way easily, with or without device attached. In use, the arm drops down 5-9" (customizable length), swivels to any angle, locks in, and holds the desired mobile device about visor-high, so the driver can keep eyes on the road while glancing as desired at mounted mobile device screen, not unlike any other dash mounted instrument. The mobile device can be instantly (with one hand) mounted or removed. The device can be easily tilted (with one hand) to the desired angle. The arm itself is solid. It rotates, swivels, and has a stiff tilt function for the magnet section. All arm movement is very firm. It is built to last for many years.
The Big-Rig securely positions the device mounted much closer than a typical windshield or side window, or dash top mount suction cup scenario. In fact, FMCSA regulations mandate the driver must be seated in normal driving posture when using a hands free mobile device. No reaching, leaning, down, across, or sideways to touch the phone if doing so changes the driver's normal upright driving posture.
The Big-Rig MagMount close proximity to the driver provides for optimal voice activation and interaction without disturbing the driver's normal seated driving posture, or eyes on the forward roadway.
The Big-Rig MagMount uniquely locates and locks the mounted device just inches above the normal field of vision of the road ahead. It can be instantly swung out of the way when not in use. It's there when you want it, and fully out of the way when you don't.
The mount base inserted measures 2.5" deep x 3" wide x 1.75" high. It is anchored and leveraged inside the typical storage bin above the driver with our (soon to be) patent-pending adjustable "piston and pad" mount system. No suction cups, adhesives, Velcro, spring clamps, or OEM specific hardware are involved.
For initial installation, simply measure and cut the 2 pistons to length as needed (with any PVC cutter or utility knife) to fit inside compartment. Then hand tighten (expand) the pistons upward to secure the base unit. Install or remove any time desired. Un-tighten pistons by hand and lift entire unit out. Leaves no permanent marks or indentations. All surfaces are fully protected.
The suspended mobile device can be accessed hands free by a simple glance, voice command, or quick single finger touch, with eyes kept forward on the road. It suspends any mobile device at the level the driver chooses, not unlike the drop down location of a visor edge, only typically even closer.
Once the arm is angled at desired location, just hand tighten the side set-screw handle. This locks the drop-down arm in place.
Any wiring to the mobile device can be wrapped snug to the drop down arm and kept tidy. No dangling wires.
The Big-Rig MagMount can instantly turn your mounted device into an HD dash cam (blackbox) for looping live video of travels. If your smartphone captures HD video, apps such as AutoBoy (Android) or DashCam (iTunes AppStore), can convert your mounted phone into a first class dash cam with all the typical dash cam features. Switch back and forth instantly from dash cam app to other phone applications as desired. Big-Rig can also rotate your device 360° for recording in-cabin in any direction.
The mount base and piston design adjusts to most compartments. All black, it has a very slim and discrete profile with no clunky parts to manage. The magnet with 90lbs pull force is the strongest neo magnet in the consumer mount industry, often double other available mag mounts. It can hold any smartphone (including with most thicker cases) and most tablets up to 20 oz securely, yet provide full rotation and instant one-handed removal.
It's not magic, it's MobileMount Solutions.
