SafeDrivePod is the comprehensive solution for smartphone/tablet use in traffic for both motor vehicles and bicycles.
It ensures that the mobile or tablet cannot be used while driving, and is available for both Android and iOS.
Hands-free options (voice-activated calling and car kit) are still usable.
Navigation apps can be used on Android (Google Maps, Waze, etc.) and on iOS (Apple Maps).

It depends on what model pod and what kind of smartphone you have. The Bluetooth connection with an Android phone runs at a slower pace than with an iPhone, because the iPhone has to be closed very quickly when you try to open the phone, while with Android the screen is blocked in a different way that is not affected by the Bluetooth connection speed. So, on Android the pod lasts about two times longer than on iOS.
At the moment, there are three SafeDrivePods:
1) The smallest pod (version 2) lasts for about 150,000 km or about three years on Android.
2) The bigger Truckpod (version 3) has a different Bluetooth chip inside and a much bigger battery, which lasts for more than 1.5 million km on Android.
3) The last version of the SafeDrivePod, the round but somewhat bigger version 4 contains a much more efficient Bluetooth chip so that the battery can run for up to 400,000 km on Android.
All these distances have to be divided by 2 for iOS.
And don't worry, if the battery of your SafeDrivePod is depleted during your contract, we will just ship you a replacement!
Even though we block the screen, you can still use navigation.
You can use Apple Maps for full navigation.
With other navigation you will hear the sound of the navigation, but you will not see the map in front of you.
As soon as you start driving and there are no instructions, the screen will turn black after the self-set sleep time of your phone, but well before you need a turn / turn, the screen will turn on and you will have visual navigation.
Immediately view the map? Then click on the on / off button once.
If you want to use a music app, such as Spotify, while driving, start it up before you start driving.
The Bluetooth connection that streams the music to your car will continue to work, but you cannot operate the app while driving.
At the moment, there are three SafeDrivePod models:
The smallest round one (version 2) and the bigger Truckpod (version 3) make use of a Bluetooth chip that can only make one connection at the same time. These pods are used most often.
The new version 4 SafeDrivePod has a new Bluetooth chip that can have more connections simultaneously.
Please note that for each extra connection, more battery power is drawn: that's why we limited the maximum number of connection to two.
That depends on which of our products you use. If it is only Focus (blocking the phone while driving) then it doesn't really matter where the pod is placed in the car, as long as it is not directly in the sun.
If we are also determining your driving style (Motion) then the pod should be stuck somewhere on the dashboard. The logo should point towards the back of the car and the pod should be placed upright (i.e. vertical). Further explanation can be found in the app.
