What is a #1776 Tesla compatible cell phone mount?

The #1776 is a cell phone holder that mounts to your steering wheel. The patent-pending magnetic Tesla cell phone mount works with most cell phones.  Many steering wheel mounted cell phone holders are on the USA market today. There is no bans in the USA on cellphone holders. NOTE: The #1776 is designed to use while the vehicle is stationary.  Some states have restrictions on mounting cellphones to your wheel while operating the vehicle. Check local laws in your state before using. The #1776 cellphone holder is not a nag reduction device, it is a cellphone holder. Do not use while the car is in motion. 

What is an Autopilot Buddy?

When "Autosteer" aka "Autopilot" was first released by Tesla Motors you could drive for thirty minutes without nagging.  Telsa had taken away features owners paid for, by reducing the functionality dramatically. Over the air "updates" neutered the "Autosteer" feature by reducing autopilot from thirty minutes to thirty seconds.  The Autopilot Buddy is a device that is specifically molded to fit the Telsa steering wheel. It is intended for track use only.  This device reduces the "nags" introduced in recent updates from Tesla.

I've read that NTHSA has asked you to quit selling the Autopilot Buddy nag reduction device.

  Our #1776 cell phone holders can be purchased by U.S. residents; because they are not a nag reduction devices; they are cellphone holders.  The National Transportation and Highway Safety Administration requested we stop selling our Autopilot Buddy devices to USA residents.  We have complied with their request.

We no longer process orders of the Autopilot Buddy® nag reduction device to addresses within the United States. We can sell and ship cellphone holders to U.S. residents. We also can ship autopilot buddy orders to International customers.
