Many people who work from their vehicles require a computer in their car or truck. Computers that are developed specifically for this use are called car computers, vehicle computers, mobile data terminals (MDT’s), or mobile computers. For anyone who plans to use a computer in a vehicle, they should add a mount to the vehicle. Adding a mount will provide ease of use, better ergonomics, and safety for both the computer and the user. Why would you want a computer mount when using your computer in a vehicle? The answer is simple – you cannot afford not to! A vehicle mount is a must have if you are driving with your computer in the vehicle. Here are some top reasons why mounting a computer in your vehicle is beneficial.
Safety is one of the top reasons to use a computer vehicle mount. Every year over 130,000 people are hurt by flying objects inside vehicles, not just during an accident but during sudden stops, turns and unexpected maneuvers. Your computer, or your employee’s computer, becomes a very dangerous object at unexpected times. The computer itself can be damaged, causing down time and potentially costly repairs.
Ergonomics and ease of use are additional reasons to install a vehicle computer mount. Having the computer in a comfortable and easy to reach position reduces back and eye strain as well as increases productivity. If you use a mobile printer, it can also be mounted keeping everything safe, within reach, and in a professional looking set up.
