About Bluejay Smart Mount
The Bluejay Smart Mount describes themselves as the world’s first smart mount which has the ability to seamlessly connect your phone to your car using not only a mount but also an integrated mobile application.
How Does It Work?
According to the Bluejay Smart Mount website, the majority of car mounts are made from cheap plastic which often have difficulty even holding your phone securely, which is their most basic function. Even if the mount does your hold your phone, users still have issues with needing to “fiddle with numerous apps” to get to their music, make a call, or find directions.
The Bluejay Mount, on the other hand, attaches your phone to the mount using a high powered magnet that will powerfully attach to a metal plate that you can either place in between your phone and its protective case, or you can choose to adhere to the back of your phone or its case. The website promises that neither the metal plate nor the magnet will negatively affect your phone in any way.
The Mount itself has the ability to attach to your car in three different ways. Customers can choose a suction cup attachment for placing the mount on the windshield, an adhesive pad attachment for placing it on your dashboard, or an air vent clip. Once you mount is set, customers can still adjust it however they need because of the Bluejay’s multi-axis system.
Finally, this Smart Mount also comes with a mobile application that can provide streamlined functioning to cut down on driving distractions and which can help drivers locate their car in an unfamiliar parking garages, lots, or areas.
The mobile application that pairs with this mount is available for download on both iOS and Android operating platforms, as long as customers are using iPhone 4S or later and Android 4.3 or later.
Currently this product is still available for pre-order through their Kickstarter page. At this time, customers who pledge $79 to the Kickstarter campaign will receive the Bluejay with choice of one mounting accessory, or customers can opt to get all three accessories for just an additional $9, for a total of $88.00.
The Kickstarter page says that this product should be available for shipment beginning in July 2016, and though they do not provide information on what the retail price of this product will be once it is officially available on the open market but generally the retail price is always higher than what is requested during the Kickstarter campaign.
Since this product is still only available for pre-order, all customers can do at this time is cancel their pre-order. The website does not provide any specific information for a Cancelation Policy at this time, so customers will need to contact their Customer Service team to determine what, if anything, can be done to cancel their order.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by clicking on the “Ask A Question” link available at the bottom of the Kickstarter campaign page.
Since this product is not yet available for sale on the open market, there aren’t really any customer reviews available for this product at this time. The product reviews that are available on other websites and blogs do appear to be very positive and favorable about this product, but it seems as though customers will need to make their own decision regarding whether to purchase this product for a discounted fee before it hits the market, or wait until reviews are widely available and be willing to pay full retail price.
Competitors and Alternatives?
As mentioned by the Bluejay campaign page, there are many, many different smartphone mounts available for car use on the market today, including Henge Docks, Grab-It, Navdy.com, and many others. Customers will want to search for a mount depending on how they want to mount their phone, what kind of phone they have, and whether they simply want a mount or additional mobile features.
