Laptop Computer Mounts - FAQ's
Q. If I buy a Jotto desk, or already own a Jotto Desk laptop mount, is it possible to purchase a new base if I change vehicles?
A. Yes, bases can be purchased separately.
The bases are available to purchase by telephone or through our website. If you need any help choosing a base, please feel free to
call us toll-free (1-866-314-5427) and we will get you fixed up.
Q. What is the difference between a Universal Desk and a Custom Desk?
A. The only difference is how they get mounted into the vehicle.
Q. Can I still carry a passenger in the front seat with the Jotto Desk installed, or do I have give up the passenger seat to accommodate the laptop mount?
A. The Jotto Desk is designed with passenger comfort in mind. We have dubbed the term “passenger friendly” to describe the ability to carry a front seat passenger with the laptop mounts installed. Generally, the vertical assembly of the Jotto Desk will come up from the floor and be located to the left-front corner of the passenger chair. This allows a majority of the seat to be utilized for passengers.
Q. Can the laptop computer mount be removed easily so if I want to carry a passenger, it is out of the way?
A. Yes, The desktop and the vertical assembly can be easily removed for storage. A simple handle that can be
removed by hand is all that holds the upper part of your Jotto Desk to the base.
Q. My laptop has a 17” screen and the Jotto Desk desktop is only 10”x12”, is there a bigger table available to fit my size of computer?
A. This question comes up a lot and the simple answer is that the table size really is not that important. What is important is the length of cable that is used to secure your laptop to the table. In reality, the table is being used as a place to mount the ACD hardware, and foam pads, as shown in this short video.
Q. How do I determine which length of ACD Cables I will require?
A. Cable length requirement is determined by measuring the width of your laptop computer from edge to edge straight across your keyboard.
Q. How do I ask for a different cable length if I place my order online?
A. When filling in your billing and shipping information in our shopping cart you will come across a text box
called “Comments or Special Instructions”. You can either tell us what width your laptop is and we will send you the appropriate
cable length, or you can request a specific cable length (20”, or 26¾”).
Q. Will my tablet PC work on with the Jotto Desk?
A. Absolutely! In fact, the Jotto Desk is the best solution on the market for tablet PC’s, due to the desktops ability to be vertically positioned.
Q. Isn’t it illegal to use your laptop while driving?
A. No, it is not illegal, however, using a computer while driving is not a good idea. Many people utilize
common GPS/mapping software programs for their travels which will require almost no input from the computer user. We recommend
setting up and getting your GPS program running prior to getting on the road. Do not attempt to use your computer in any way
that will interfere with your ability to concentrate on the task of driving safely.
Q. I want to lock my computer to the desk so I can leave my computer in my vehicle unattended. Does the Jotto Desk desktop have a locking feature available?
A. One of the most desired features of a mobile laptop mount is its ability to be removed from the vehicle
quickly and easily, which in turn actually makes locking your computer to the desktop about as effective as locking the doors
on your convertible car, while the top is off. Even thought your laptop would be locked onto the desktop, it would in no way
stop someone from removing the desk, with your laptop still attached and taking both desk and computer.
Q. Can a passenger also use the computer?
A. Absolutely! The Jotto Desk Articulated Swing Arm allows the computer desktop to be positioned for either
driver or passenger use.
Q. Aren’t the cables going to get in the way of my keys making it hard to type?
A. Not at all. The cables are attached to draw latches which can be positioned to where the top cable will be
above your number keys, and the bottom cable is positioned below your space bar and above your mouse glide pad.
Q. Does the Jotto Desk have a shock or spring to lessen the vibration caused by going over potholes or rough roads?
A. Yes, no, well sort of.
Q. I want to be able to close my screen while I am driving. Can I close the screen across the ACD cables?
A. Yes. The ACD cables are a very thin but extremely strong aircraft cable (Braided metal strands) that are coated in a tough nylon. These cables are small and thin enough that you will be able to close your laptop screen, and snap it shut for those times when your computer is not in use while traveling.
Q. I drive on really rough roads. Will the Jotto Desk stand up to the abuse?
A. This desk was designed with these kinds of harsh conditions in mind. It certainly will stand up to such use.
