Hi guys,


As above we stop at hundreds of customers daily and lately our cheap android phones are being stolen more often from the trucks which is more of an annoyance than anything.


I'm wanting a phone that I can get a dock for which I can screw to the dash, which the phone cannot be removed from and obviously has a built in charger. If thats not possible Im happy to glue the phone into the dock. But still, I need a dock with a charger. I've tried googling but really not finding anything.


Anyone have any ideas or a company you can point me to to help? Hamilton based. Cheers!

Bury carphone?

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Why not just fit a central locking alarm (like couriers use). 


That way, you provide good security for anything that needs to be in the cab (inc cash/docs/cheques/tech). 


If your phones keep missing now, then later the crooks will simply head to the glove box, side pockets, centre console, under the seat etc etc etc.

As above. Bury is a brand. Comes with a full kit. Not cheap.

Edit: Google truck phone

Have you had a look at the Moto Z line? There is an Incipio Car Dock Moto Mod that pairs with the Z series and charges them.
