Connect Kits and Exclusive Dock'n Drive App Allow Safe and Convenient Access to Direct Dial Contacts, GPS Navigation and Music Apps

ARCADIA, Calif., May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- From soccer moms to road warriors, anyone can enjoy a stress-free journey with iBOLT™, maker of the first-of-its-kind Dock'n Connect car docks that provide people with a safe and convenient way to connect to their outside world while driving. Today, the industry leader announced three new additions to its car dock line: the xProDock, sPro2 and miniPro Connect Kits. All three Connect Kits are designed to provide Android users with secure and versatile car docks that, when paired with iBOLT's exclusive Dock'n Drive app, will launch an eye-catching, easy-to-use home screen interface that enables consumers to access their favorite apps and entertainment while driving.

"In a world where everyone wants and expects to be connected 24/7, our car docks are the perfect driving companion for Android users to easily and responsibly access their smartphone's key features and capabilities at an eye-level, easy-to-view position," said Bruce Clark, vice president of sales for iBOLT. "By offering three different Connect Kits, people have the option to select the dock best suited for their device while still having an immersive, integrated driving experience that can be completely customized to their interests and needs."

Once a smartphone connects to the NFC tag that is included in all three Connect Kits, it automatically switches into Android's Dock Mode, which launches the Dock'n Drive app. The Dock'n Drive app initiates a customizable home interface with a GPS-enabled speedometer and compass, large shortcut buttons to access maps, traffic and GPS navigation apps like Scout® by Telenav® and a media control for streaming music from apps such as Pandora® and Spotify®. Users can add shortcuts for direct dials and up to 30 of their favorite apps, and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity can be set to turn on and off automatically. Finally, the Dock'n Drive app incorporates the "It Can Wait" feature, which restricts incoming texts for safe and lawful driving.

All iBOLT car docks are German-engineered with a sleek, lightweight and vibration-free exterior and black, soft-touch finish, offering style and durability. Additionally, all three Connect Kits fit most Android smartphones?from the Galaxy S2 to the Note 3?with thick, protective casing, and the mounts offer 360-degree viewing angles along with exceptional adherence to all hard surfaces including windshields and dashboards.
