Thanks for checking us out!
I really appreciate your interest of D-Docks. With the great innovation of Android Auto and CarPlay, there needs to be a better solution to fit your phone to your car. Enough of putting up with searching for cable ends to plug into your phone then having to tuck the wires out of the way or having "hang-on" solutions strapped to vents or sides of instrument panels. We paid too much money for our nice cars for an after-thought solution!
A bit about my background. My name is Danny. I grew up in a small town called Holland which his located on the westside of the state of Michigan in the United States. I studied Car and Product Design at the Art Center College of Design in California. I graduated the program at their campus in Vevey Switzerland, then worked in Germany for a major OEM for 15 years (if you are a customer speaking German, I need to catch up on my Deutsche!). In 2006, I came back to my hometown in Michigan to work for a leading Tier One Automotive Supplier.
D-Docks was born when I finally bought a new car in 2015 (a 2016 MK7 VW GTI – I love it!). With Apple CarPlayTM, I didn’t need to see the phone anymore but I did need a way to connect the phone quickly & easily getting in and out of my car that didn’t detract from the clean lines of my nice new interior.
Right now, we’re a small company (like home office small) but are driven by the belief that people shouldn’t have to compromise on storage solutions for their phone. D-Docks is offering a solution for the car it started with, the VW MK7 series of Golfs, but if you like what you see and would like a similar solution for your vehicle, let me know in the comments section. It just might be the next product on the list to create!
I love my career and job where I get to improve people's lives by creating enjoyable products to use. That's why I would like to get any feedback you have - it's your feedback that will drive better products - so thanks. I am really hoping you enjoy using your D-Dock!
