Our take on the inCarBite M2-20-3F

by Dominic Devito
inCarBite

Worry-free travels with your iPad

inCarBite's M2-20-1 case and headrest mounting kit

Road trips should be fun, not filled with dread about your favorite devices getting mishandled. The inCarBite M-20-3F iPad 2 case and headrest mount keeps your iPad stays safe and sound on your car's headrest for the entire journey, so your back seat passengers stay entertained. It'll even keep your iPad charged from door to door, and allows you to send iPad audio to wireless headphones or your car's stereo.

Rugged, impact-resistant case

The impact-resistant case will come in handy inside and outside of your car — it's made of tough plastic and covers all four corners of your iPad 2 to keep it safe from drops and other hazards. Its mounting arm doubles as a stand so you can prop your iPad up on a table for hands-free viewing at home.

 

Attaches without tools

The universal headrest mount attaches without tools to almost any removable headrest, and locks into place for secure iPad use and viewing. Your backseat passengers will be able to check out their movies in comfort without tying up their hands. The impact-resistant plastic mount is made to enjoy a long life in your vehicle.

Two ways to go wireless

The mount includes a built-in infrared transmitter so your backseat passengers can use universal wireless headphones to pick up the soundtrack or listen to their tunes without getting tangled up. The included FM transmitter also sends the iPad's audio to your car's stereo so the whole family can enjoy music from your iPad as it sits in the mount — all without running any extra wires.

Adjusts to best viewing angle

To use the case and the mount together, simply insert the case's mounting arm into the mount that you've attached to the headrest. Once installed, the mounting arm locks into place to keep your iPad safe. You can enjoy tilt adjustment for optimum viewing angle from the backseat. Removing the iPad case from the mount is as simple as disengaging the safety lock and sliding the mounting arm out.

Use inCarBite at home, too

The inCarBite iPad 2 case also works with their desktop and kitchen dock, which gives you a convenient home for your iPad 2 on the table or underneath a cabinet for easy viewing. It offers a built-in powered speaker so the whole family can enjoy music and movies without having to worry about sharing headphones.

Features

Overview: The inCarBite M2-20-3F Headrest Car Mount for iPad 2 connects your Apple iPad 2 easily to almost any vehicle headrest without any tools required. It also can be used as a table stand for your iPad 2 in the home. The inCarBite M2-20-3F includes an iMount protective case with built-in FM & IR transmitter, a Quick-Go-3 headrest mount, and a 12-volt power adapter.

Note: This product is specifically designed for the Apple iPad 2 (not the iPad or iPad 3).

Quick-Go-3 Headrest Mount: The Quick-Go-3 headrest mount can be installed very easily to either the driver or passenger seat headrest of your vehicle. Its two-piece design simply clamps around both metal poles of your vehicle's headrest and tightens using two threaded knobs. The Quick-Go-3 headrest mount features a rugged ABS plastic exterior (black) with steel frame internal bracing, so your iPad 2 will not shake while your vehicle is moving.

Note: Adjust the headrest position before installing the Quick-Go-3 headrest mount.

iMount Case: Your iPad 2 device easily snaps into the iMount protective case. The iMount case is made of rugged ABS plastic with a rubberized black finish to protect your iPad 2 in your vehicle. It offers a compact and lightweight design, with rounded corners. There is an integrated dock-connector to plug-in your iPad 2 and a back-panel DC port to connect the included 12-volt power adapter. There is also an audio-pin window for access to the iPad 2's headphone jack. In addition, the iMount protective case features a built-in FM & IR transmitter. The iMount case features an adjustable arm which inserts into the included Quick-Go-3 headrest mount for in-car use. This adjustable arm also allows the iMount case to serve as a table-top stand, keyboard stand, or photo frame for your iPad 2. You can adjust the tilting angle of the arm to your desirable position to avoid glare. 

Note: The iMount case is only designed to orientate your iPad 2 horizontally (not vertically).

FM Transmitter: The iMount protective case is equipped with a built-in FM transmitter to output sound to your car audio system through the car stereo's FM radio.

IR Transmitter: The iMount case features a built-in IR transmitter for private listening through a pair of IR headphones (sold separately). There is an A-B IR channel switch on the back panel of the iMount protective case.

12-Volt Power Adapter: The inCarBite M2-20-3F Headrest Car Mount for iPad 2 comes with a 12-volt power adapter which can be plugged into your vehicle's cigarette lighter port or 12-volt accessory port in order to supply power to and charge your iPad 2's internal battery.

Add-On Accessories: You can purchase additional inCarBite accessories to mount your iPad 2 in multiple vehicles or in your home.

  • Powered Headrest Mount: You can purchase an extra power headrest mount (139AI101S, sold separately) if you want to be able to move the powered iMount case and your iPad 2 from one vehicle to another vehicle.
  • Powered Kitchen/Desktop Mount: The SI-102 powered kitchen/desktop mount (139SI102, sold separately) lets you mount the powered iMount case and your iPad 2 under a kitchen cabinet or simply place it on your desk at home.

Dimensions:

  • Headrest Mount: 9.4375" (w) x 1.0" (h) x 3.0" (d)
  • iMount Case: 10.125" (w) x 7.6875" (h) x 1.0" (d)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This unit broke in less than 6 months. The model is great, except that it brakes at the end where you charge it. I will inquire about the warranty.
Pros:
Great concept, easy to use, looks great
Cons:
Bottom opening for charger brakes in pieces.you have to pull the Ipad from the case to charge it each time.
