First of all, I want to offer a cheap alternative to these: Velcro. The units have flat bases and a couple of strong strips of Velcro can hold any unit firmly on a dash. This still allows the unit to be easily removed.
The docking stations are not necessary in most cases, but can be helpful in mounting a system and nice to have. Each unit uses a different dock, but they all serve a similar purpose. Here’s some situation when they are helpful.
- Easily clip your system in and out of the dock. Secure and safe, yet easy to remove.
- You need additional ports such as multiple USB, VGA or HDMI (Premium 15, Midrange and Premium 12)
- If you need to mount your system at an angle or on a wall.
- When you mount the system on a smaller space than the footprint it needs.
Below are the photos of the relevant docks that fit various systems I offer. They are a flat $125 for any model. Please note that as this item is pretty bulky and heavy, it will likely increase the shipping cost somewhat.
