Now, they’re side-hopping into a new category: motorcycle phone mounts.
It makes sense, really. With Statista telling us that 85 percent of all American adults in possession of a smartphone today (compared to the scant 35 percent in 2011), it’s assumed that y’all would want something to keep your precious device protected on the long weekend commutes.
Whether you’re just craving the security blanket of a front-and-center mount or looking to replace a cheap gimmick that you bought in your budget-friendly phase, BMW knows you want it – so they made it.
AutoEvolution says that BMW’s new chonky boy can be ‘attached to the bike by means of adjustable side clamps, and can hold many different smartphone sizes.’
7.5 W inductive charging is the first perk on the list, with the potential for wired charging of the same capacity via a USB-C connection.
“Aside from providing the perfect platform to use the phone as a navigation screen, the Connected App and Multi-Controller will also turn the phone into a tool to show things like lean angle, acceleration, and deceleration,” states the report.
