Smartphone dashboard mounts and wireless car chargers are a dime a dozen. Fiora has announced some updates to their Ultimate Wireless Car Charger mount, including an Ultimate Dash Cam app that turns your smartphone into a dashcam.
“As we launch the Ultimate Dash Cam and upgrade the Ultimate Wireless Car Charger, we celebrate elevating the safety level of drivers everywhere. Our top-quality product was born of a void in the industry — a quality wireless phone charger that charges phones quickly and reliably for the long haul. As more places seek to increase the safety level of drivers, people are turning to us to drive more safely and comply with the law.”YJ Kim, Fiora CEO
The updated Ultimate Wireless Car Charger features 15W wireless charging and a new look with tempered glass to prevent overheating. The additional capacitor added by Fiora allows you to open and close the mount even with your vehicle engine off. Finally, the company has made refinements to the air vent clip for a sturdier grip and a more stable hold. In addition to an air vent clip, the mount comes with a dash/window suction cup for optimal placement.
Compatible with iOS and Android, the Ultimate Dash Cam app can be installed on your smartphone for even more functionality. When launched it records video in 1080p resolution. It records your speed, time, date, and GPS location. Like any decent dashcam, the app records on impact and locks videos of any impact. Videos can also be stored on Google Drive, Dropbox, YouTube, and Box. With a dark mode to prevent distracted driving, the app also works in sync with Google Maps for turn-by-turn directions.
