BMW Motorrad Smartphone Cradle Debuts

AutoInformed.comAs if distracted driving wasn’t bad enough, the BMW Motorrad Smartphone Cradle is now available at all BMW Motorrad retailers. In Germany the Smartphone Cradle can be purchased for a price of €195 ($217) including 19% added value tax.

The German maker crows that “navigating, telephoning, enjoying music and much more else – the skills of modern smartphones are multiple and made for turning motorcycling and scootering even more comfortable and eventful.” Given the small margin for error on a ‘donor cycle,’ eventful can have more than one meaning.

Mounting the smartphone cradle works by using the BMW Motorrad Navigator holder, which is not included. Depending on the model, in Germany this holder is available at a price starting from €65.
