What Havis Products Do We Carry?

We carry a wide variety of Havis vehicle docks for the many popular and sought after rugged computers on the market. We make sure we have a healthy stock of vehicle docks for both the individual who may need one or two docks for their traveling business or for the first responder who may need to outfit their fleet of vehicles to deploy on the road. They have officers, EMTs, and other personnel pulling long shifts in these cars that need a safe place to store their laptops or tablet and a comfortable place to get work done.

Connect All Your Peripherals Easily

One of the more prominent advantages of Havis docks is that most of them offer extra ports to connect all of the peripherals you might need in a mobile workstation. These ports typically include:

  • USB Ports
  • HDMI Ports
  • VGA Ports
  • Serial Ports
  • RJ-45 Ports

What is included with our Havis Docks?

The best way to find out what is included with each Havis dock we sell is to check that Havis dock’s description on its product page. Not all docks have a key to unlock the dock included, but the docks will be unlocked when sold. Some docks, when included with a Lind adapter, will come with a hard wire connection, and other will come with a cigarette adapter that will plug into the automobile auxiliary power outlet of your car.

Getting The Best Dock For Your Rugged Computer

Havis offers a lot of docks that are device-specific. For example, we have a car dock for the Panasonic Toughbook FZ-55 and CF-54 and another option for the Toughbook CF-53. There are some Havis universal options, but they do not all include additional ports. They are a secure place to put a laptop or tablet in the car.

Compatible With Lind Adapters

Some of these Havis docks are also compatible with Lind adapters. Some of the car docks we have listed come with a Lind adapter included at no additional cost so that you can charge your computer while it's secure in the dock.
