The best things in life are hands-free.

Beam DriveDock Extreme offers hands-free calling and built-in in GPS.

Beam DriveDOCK Extreme hands-free docking solution provides a high quality transport installation for the Iridium Extreme™ handset. The docking station has in-built echo cancelling and full duplex technologies to provide superior voice quality and professional hands-free or privacy calls for any vehicle or aircraft*.

The Iridium Extreme handset fits securely in the dock, which features USB and serial data connectivity, phone charging and integrated antenna, data and power connection making it possible to keep all antenna cables and power permanently connected to the DriveDOCK ready for use.

The Iridium Extreme handset fits securely in the docking station with an easy click to lock mechanism that can be inserted and removed with a press of a button. It is purposely built to allow you to utilize the SOS emergency button and the ear-piece jack whilst docked.

DriveDOCK Extreme also supports the use of an optional privacy handset for added convenience or the Intelligent Privacy Handset, that replicates the full functionality of the Extreme handset in another location.
