After mobile phones became a necessary accessory in our cars, smartphones came along to supplement them. The variety of mounts and connection possibilities in vehicles has kept pace with the increasing number of different entertainment media.
Depending on the requirements, the docking stations may be tailored to fit one particular device. Universal mounts that will accommodate a number of phone models are also possible.
The phones are usually mounted in the central console arm rest, and can be either lying down or standing up. Depending on the space available, both slide and twist alternatives can be taken into consideration to facilitate easy attachment and removal of the mobile phone.
