New iStabilizer Glass Keeps Eyes Off the Smartphone and On the Road
iStabilizer™, creator of universal lightweight and compact tripods, steady cams and mounts for smartphones and GPS units, announces the Glass windshield mount for iPhone and other mobile devices. Featuring iStabilizer’s universal Mount™, the Glass is compatible with any smartphone without requiring the removal of protective cases or bumpers. iStabilizer’s Glass secures your mobile device to your car’s windshield or dashboard, keeping street maps, directions and music playlist safely in view and at eye level. The Glass windshield mount is available now for just $29.95 at www.iStabilizer.com.
A recent study by the Institute of Advance Motorists and Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), found that smartphone use while driving was more dangerous than driving under the influence of alcohol. Handheld smartphone use while driving generated a 37.4 percent slower reaction time, while driving under the influence of alcohol lead to a 12.5 percent decrease in reaction time. “Drivers spent more time looking at their phone than the road ahead when trying to send messages, rendering the driver blind to emerging hazards and the developing traffic situation. Even when hazards were detected, the driver’s ability to respond was slowed,” stated Nick Reed, senior researcher at TRL.
iStabilizer’s Glass takes the smartphone out of your hand and secures it at eye level, keeping you more attentive and aware of hazards when using turn by turn directions or other directional apps. With a built-in iStabilizer Mount, Glass works with mobile devices or designated GPS units measuring up to 2.75” (7cm) wide. The suction cup base uses a simple locking mechanism to connect to any dashboard or windshield. Two adjustment knobs provide an endless amount of angles and positions, allowing driver or passenger easy viewing in landscape and portrait modes.
“With Apple’s new iOS 6 and existing directional apps, turn by turn directions on your smartphone have become a part of everyday life. The Glass focuses on safety by putting all the valuable street maps and directions up and at street level, minimizing distractions and increasing the driver’s ability to avoid accidents,” says Noah Rasheta, founder and CEO of iStabilizer. “Glass is also future proof, new iPhone, new Android or new anything, the Glass will fit almost any smartphone with or without a case. With all the accessories you have to upgrade when a new phone comes out, it’s nice to have a mount that fits whatever smartphone you choose to go with.”
