MUNICH, Germany – Navigating, telephoning, enjoying music and much more more – the skills of modern smartphones are multiple and can make motorcycling and scootering more comfortable and eventful.

So, BMW Motorrad has designed a cradle for smartphones up to 12.5cm that can attach quickly and safely to the handlebar clamps horizontal or vertical – rider’s choice.

Mounting the cradle requires BMW Motorrad’s Navigator V holder (special accessory, not part of the scope of delivery).

CHOOSE YOUR CHARGER

Installed in a robust plastic hardcase, the smartphone is not only perfectly protected from dust and water but also offers best possible readability, thanks to an anti-reflection flexfoil see-through panel. Power supply comes from a power socket (special accessory).

Charging is done via micro-USB or – if available – wirelessly by magnetic induction. A light-emitting diode reports charging state.

An anti-slip, vibration and shock-impeding gel pad shelf ensures a safe installation as well a being. Heat soak for the phone while riding.

The new BMW Motorrad smartphone cradle is likely to be available at the second quarter of 2016, price then.
