A big part of Motion Computing’s success in rugged tablets to date is the ecosystem that they have built around the product. Vehicle mounting is one component of that ecosystem.
In vehicle docking solutions facilitate a number of important functions:
- Securing the tablet
- Ensuring in use safety – Blank IT screen control technology prevents the tablet from being used inappropriately while moving
- Charging the tablet
- USB connectivity – a keyboard, track pad and printer can be permanently connected to the dock for in vehicle use
- Serial Port connectivity (built in for J3600 dock)
Here are some photos of an installation the we did in a Ford Ranger 2012 Model for a local council.
As you can see, the screen is blanked to prevent use while the vehicle is moving. This can be configured to allow certain programs to run – such as a Turn by Turn Navigation system, a job list or a reversing camera.

- Ford Ranger
- Ford Territory
- Ford Falcon
- Holden Commodore
