Gamber-Johnson, an ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturer of rugged docking stations and vehicle mounting, announces a Vehicle Specific Console Box for the re-designed 2014 Chevrolet Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle (PPV).
The new Chevrolet Caprice PPV has moved the shifter from the center console to the steering wheel column. With this re-design the Gamber-Johnson Vehicle Specific Console Box is now able to extend all the way to the dash. Creating a mounting platform for the computer/tablet to be center mounted. Another benefit of this re-design is the console box can now accommodate one full sized radio/device in the vertical, angled section. Due to a high transmission hump the console box is still designed to work with radio control heads in the horizontal section to allow for passenger side egress in an emergency situation.
The mounting platform has been designed with two different hole patterns and locations. The first mounting pattern is the Gamber-Johnson “smiley face” pattern that accommodates any Gamber-Johnson Motion Attachment or the Tablet Display Mount and allows for rotation/swivel movement. The smiley face is off-set towards the passenger, which allows for easy movement from driver to passenger side viewing access. Gamber-Johnson recommends the 6” Locking Slide Arm (7160-0502) for a Motion Attachment.
The second mounting pattern is for the Gamber-Johnson Mongoose and 6” Locking Slide Arm Motion Attachments. A series of 3 bolt holes allow for the Mongoose or 6” Locking Slide Arm to bolt directly to the mounting platform. The 3 bolt holes are off-set towards the driver, giving the driver easy access to move the computer closer to them when needed and stow it when it isn’t needed.
