Everything about OverDryve was designed with the driver in mind. It features an elegant user display that provides access to key items at a glance. It comes with a clever, easy to install magnetic mount, making attaching and removing the device a snap. Keeping safety at the forefront, some OverDryve features are disabled while the device is on the mount and in driver mode. Off the mount – for passengers in the car or after the drive – OverDryve™ is a fully loaded entertainment tablet that can be used to watch movies, access social media, and check email.
