From catching up with friends on social media to offering a source of entertainment via podcasts, music, and video apps, mobile phones are a huge part of our lives. With that being said, using one’s phone on the road is both dangerous and highly illegal, and should be avoided at all costs -- but truck drivers who spend much of their day on the road can still utilize some of their cell phone's features with the proper accessories.

With a hands-free car mount, safely performing certain tasks like listening to music, utilizing GPS maps, and more on your phone can still be possible. Here are the four biggest reasons why truckers need one of ROKFORM’s hands-free mounts while on the go.

1.Hands-Free Calls

Making deliveries while on the road requires a lot of communication – for this reason, having one’s cell phone handy at all times is often necessary. Instead of having to dig through a bag, reach in the glove compartment, or even reach inside a pocket, having your phone always readily available on a hands-free mount is far more convenient. Phone mounts eliminate truck drivers’ needs to use their hands in order to operate their phones, which makes taking calls easier and safer than ever before.

A few ROKFORM phone mounts that we recommend trying are the Magnetic Windshield Suction Mount, the Super Grip Vent Mount, and the Low Profile Magnetic Car Dash Mount. Each of these car mounts allow for hands-free usage of one’s smart phone while on the road, but each operate slightly differently from one another. 

The Magnetic Windshield Suction Mount can be easily mounted onto any windshield, and is very adjustable and can be placed just about anywhere. The Super Grip Vent Mount, which can be attached to just about any car vent, is great for vehicles that have little space available elsewhere and is also very easy to readjust. Finally, the Low Profile Magnetic Car Dash Mount is great because it takes up very little space, and is the least intrusive of all of our car mounts.

2. Easier Navigation

Truck drivers need to know where they’re going when making deliveries, therefore having navigational directions available to them at all times is pretty much essential. And while many modern vehicles feature some sort of built-in GPS navigation system, many commercial grade trucks do not.

Many truckers rely on the navigational apps on their smart devices; but without an easy way to view your navigation hands-free, using such apps can become dangerous. Because of this, utilizing a hands-free mount is essential for truckers: it allows truckers to more easily navigate while driving while also keeping themselves and others safe.

One car mount that we’d like to recommend is the RokLock Car Dash Mount, which locks your phone into place very securely and easily. Mountable onto any smooth and flat surfaces, this car mount is compatible with all ROKFORM mountable phone cases.

3. Safer Access to Entertainment

Truck drivers are often on the road for incredibly long periods of time, which can be quite boring and dull. Sometimes, a bit of entertainment is just what one needs in order to break the monotony of being on the road – but at the same time, using your phone while driving is a big no-no. Thankfully, with a hands-free mount, accessing entertainment like podcasts and music apps is far more safe.

A hands-free mount can allow you to access your entertainment apps without having to hold your phone, improving your focus and attentiveness while on the road.

We recommend trying out the Swivel Dash Mount, which is a magnetic car mount that allows drivers to easily access entertainment on the road, while staying safe. This mount is easily attached to any car dash via a sticky adhesive, and has a super grip face that magnetically secures your phone with adjustable angles.

4. Fewer Distractions

Safety should be the number one priority while driving, so a hands-free mount is an absolute must-have for truckers. Using one’s phone while driving can be quite unsafe as it only adds distractions which makes for unsafe driving. By utilizing a hands-free mount, you’ll have quicker access to the aforementioned tasks like calls, navigation, and listening to podcasts and other entertainment without endangering yourself and others on the road.

Try out our MagSafe compatible car mounts, which feature even bigger magnetic surfaces for better mounting, an anti-slip silicone face, and are easily installable and adjustable. We recommend checking out either our Dual Magnet Vent Mount or Dual Magnet Swivel Mount.

For the perfect view while on the road, we recommend using the official ROKFORM cases and using the center magnet on the back of your phone.
