Local invention known as the JourniDock is already in demand

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - A Boardman man has helped create what he calls a safe and convenient way to dock your electronic devices as you drive.

It's called the JourniDock.

Bryan Roland, a 2011 graduate of Liberty High School, recently teamed up with his father and two friends to invent the device that sits on the center console of your car.

It's described as a mobile office at your fingertips.

It allows you to secure your phone so that it's in a position to answer it if you need it, and it can also secure your GPS, or an iPod or tablet for your passenger.

The inventive device can also be installed for backseat passengers so they can watch videos on a tablet or use an iPad.

Roland says, "It's very stable, very sturdy. We use 900 pound straps that we attach to the center console  and it doesn't mess with the function ability of your center console. So you can still lift it up and get into your center console. It doesn't get into any of that storage space."

The Liberty graduate also says the device was built with safety in mind. Roland says by having the phone mounted, when it rings you are not searching for it in your pocket or your purse -- instead it's at your fingertips.

He says the secure holder for your GPS keeps it from falling from your windshield, and keeps you from trying to re-secure it while you drive.

The mounts are spring loaded so they fit any size phone or tablet.

A number of the JourniDocks have already been sold in the Akron area and they range in price from about $140 to $180. They also come in several colors.

You can find out more about JourniDock by logging on to the official web page of the product at http://managewfmj.worldnow.com/contentmgmt/www.journidock.com.
