Works With Any Phone in Any Car
At FŪZ Designs, we don't think you should need to replace your old accessories every time you upgrade your phone. This is a nuisance for you and it is environmentally unfriendly. So, we created the EverDock Go and EverDock Dash with compatibility and beauty in mind.
Whether you own an iOS or Android device like the iPhone, Samsung Galaxy series, HTC, Nokia, Blackberry, or any other smartphone, you can rest assured that the EverDock Go will charge your phone in style.
Not only does the EverDock Go work with any phone, but it also fits in just about any car. Utilizing an ingenious locking disc, the EverDock Go mounts and dismounts from your car's cup holder or dash in just seconds.
Apple or Android and Everything Else
Regardless of who makes your device or what cable it uses, the EverDock Go will provide you with years of enjoyment. If you upgrade your phone or even change to a new platform, your EverDock Go will be able to change along with you.
Whether your phone uses a Lightning Cable, 30-pin cable, micro-USB cable, or even has a headphone jack at the bottom to connect to your car, the EverDock Go can accommodate your needs without a problem.
Any Make. Any Model
Cars come in all shapes and sizes. Creating a docking solution that works in any car wasn’t easy. Over half of the states in the US have outlawed mounting devices to the windshield, so window mounts were eliminated.
So, we decided to focus on the cup holder and the dash. Mounting the EverDock Go inside the cup holder was a challenge we solved by using a small locking disc placed at the bottom of your cup holder. This same mounting solution works great on the dash version.
Using this ingenious mounting method, the EverDock Go and EverDock Dash stay firmly in place in any car yet they are easily removed with just a simple twist.
***Verify EverDock Dash Fits in Your Vehicle
Due to the differences in slopes of windshields and dash shapes and sizes, we strongly recommend you verify the EverDock Dash fits in your car. Please download the PDF and print it to 100% scale to verify fit in your vehicle. You'll probably want to allow about 1in or 25mm of room at the top so you can dock and un-dock your phone easily.
This is not necessary with the EverDock Go. The EverDock go is about the size of a soda can so it will fit in virtually every cup holder ever made.
With or Without a Case
After launching the original EverDock, it became clear that people use a wide variety of cases. We wanted to accommodate those as well. So, the adapter has infinite adjustability on the vertical plane and four adjustments horizontally allowing the EverDock Go to accommodate virtually any case on the market. The EverDock Go will even accommodate cases as thick as the OtterBox Defender Series.
The world's best products are clean and free from unnecessary parts and ornamentation. Screws and tools are a pain and often get lost. Utilizing an ingenious adapter and cord management system, the EverDock Go allows you to install or change cables in seconds without the use of any tools or screws.
We researched the current offerings of stands and mounts for the car but were unimpressed with the cheap materials, the cumbersome installation and cords falling to the floor. With the EverDock Go, we insisted on an Aluminum top that exudes the same quality and high end look and feel of your phone and your automobile.
Simple SetupA good accessory is designed to enhance your experience with your device. If setup is cumbersome or difficult, your experience will be diminished. That's why we made the EverDock Go to be completely painless to setup and enjoy. Watch this short video below to see how simple it is to start enjoying your EverDock Go.
Effortless Two-Finger Removal
We all have hundreds of things going on at once. Your dock shouldn't require two hands or some sort of finger yoga to remove your phone. You want simple and easy removal of your device no matter what's going on. With the EverDock Go, we call it two-finger removal. Just grab and go.
Even Works With Auxiliary Audio Cables
Several popular phones on the market include stereo line-in or "aux cables" allowing you to listen with headphones or to plug directly into your car stereo. We knew many of you would want to connect to your car stereo this way, so we are including an auxiliary plug allowing you to plug your current aux cable directly into the EverDock Go. Yes, we thought of everything.
Use Your Standard Apple Lightning and 30-pin cable. Micro-USB Cable Included.
Each EverDock includes a customized micro-USB cable (1m/ 3ft long) designed specifically for your Android and other non-Apple devices. In order to avoid any unnecessary delays, and to ensure compatibility, Apple users can simply use their standard Apple lightning and 30-pin cables(Apple cables are not included).

EverDock, Our First Kickstarter Project
When we launched the EverDock on Kickstarter, we were absolutely blown away by the reception we received. We wanted to meet everyone’s expectations and we think we did. In just two months, we shipped over 10,000 units to our backers. To learn more about the EverDock, please visit our EverDock Kickstarter project.

Risks and challenges
As former product developers for a publicly traded company, we know what it takes to deliver a great product on time. In addition, we have already delivered on one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns of 2013, so we know how to navigate Kickstarter's unique challenges.
We have spent months designing, testing, and refining the design. We've already selected the manufacturer and started some basic tooling. The samples you see in the photos and videos work great and look fantastic, so we won't need to waste time tweaking the design. We have also adopted the BYOC (Bring Your Own Cable) approach to this project to avoid any unnecessary delays or compatibility problems associated with sourcing Apple's proprietary cables.
However, every project caries with it certain risks. The most common risks are potential delays in tooling, obtaining raw materials, packaging, and shipping. While we feel like we have reduced these variables as much as possible, they can never be completely eliminated.
We feel our experience and familiarity with our manufacturer and the product development process gives us a unique skill set in handling unexpected problems. Most importantly, we will make sure to give frequent updates about progress so you'll always be informed about the status of the project. We think you'll find our transparency to be a breath of fresh air.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
You may purchase the EverDock Go and EverDock Dash as fuzdesigns.com
The height of the base is 60.25mm or 2.4in and the diameter of the base of the EverDock Go is 68.55mm or 2.7in. Total height of EverDock Go is 83mm or 3.26in. This should fit into even the smallest of cup holders and the locking disc will hold it in place in even the largest of cup holders.
Yes, you may mount the EverDock Go virtually anywhere. It wouldn't look too out of place on a desktop or on your car's dash or an armrest. Basically, anywhere you feel comfortable mounting the locking disc, you can mount the EverDock Go. See how well it locks onto the brick in the video above.
The locking disc can be attached to any surface (including your dash) but most likely the bottom of your cup holder with a strong traditional adhesive. We say it is semi-permanent because you won't be removing the disc often. It will be removable but the adhesive probably won't stick well after removal.
Fortunately, removing the EverDock Go is as simple as twisting the EverDock Go about 1/3 of a turn. Then you can place a drink or water bottle right on top of the locking disc.
