Navigating, telephoning, enjoying music and much more else – the skills of modern smartphones are multiple and right made for turning out motorcycling and scootering even more comfortable and eventful. For this reason BMW Motorrad 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.
Alternatively in horizontal or upright format – right as the rider likes. Mounting the smartphone cradle works by using the BMW Motorrad Navigator V’s holder (special accessory, not part of the scope of delivery).
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.
