COLUMBUS, OH., – 20 July 2017 – IDA USA LLC, a company that invents useful gadgets and software, has developed a new smart car mount that can not only hold your phone, but also save your time both in car and at home by auto-launching a desired application. The company promises that their smart mount will provide a place for your phone and assist in everyday life.
The device called QLYX uses BLE module to interact with your phone, does not break Bluetooth connection with other devices, supports multi-connection and is compatible with both IOS and Android. Two mounting options are available: air vent clip and adhesive pad with 3M tape. Metal plates, that are attached to the phone, are made from electric steel, are only 0.05cm but ensure a reliable hold under any conditions.
The device requires a light application to work with a smartphone. It features a dashboard with handy widgets for drivers: traffic data, driving statistics, and weather forecast. Currently the mount auto-launches Waze, Spotify, Apple Maps and Google Maps, but the company promised to add more applications and widgets to choose from. The QLYX application also analysis driving statistics and patterns, and automatically drops parking pin.
“Our goals were to create first smart mount both for iOS and Android smartphones, first smart mount that serves as automobile wearable, first smart mount that not only helps to keep drivers eyes on the road, but also hands on the wheel,” describes creator of QLYX Aleks Prykhodko.
“There are so many car mounts out there, but they are limited to the use in car only. We wanted to create a product that would stretch an idea of a phone mount, so we created QLYX. A smart mount that has functionality of any regular car mount, but also features premium design and materials, and saves precious time with every use,” comments Co-Founder of IDA USA LLC Igor Romanenko.
The project launches on Kickstarter on July 27th to establish US based assembly of the product. Preliminary retail price is $47.99, but you can always get an Early Bird price by backing the project first.
