  The pushing portion 164 is disposed behind the storage portion 170. The shaft portion 164a is rotatably supported behind the storage portion 170. The arm part 164b extends radially outward from the shaft part 164a. The spring 164 c corresponds to an urging member, is wound around the shaft portion 164 a, and causes the arm portion 164 b to act so as to push out the portable device 10 attached to the storage portion 170. The support pin 164d is formed at the distal end portion of the arm portion 164b. The arm part 164b corresponds to a support part that detachably supports the portable device 10 in the state shown in FIG. The shielding part 164e is formed in a thin plate shape on the bottom side of the arm part 164b.

  The escape hole 165 has an edge portion 165a that comes into contact with the arm portion 164b when the portable device 10 is detached. The edge portion 165a is formed along the outer shape of the arm portion 164b. The arm portion 164b is pressed against the shaft portion 164a by the action of the spring 164c. When the arm portion 164b contacts the edge portion 165a, the rotation range of the arm portion 164b is restricted.

  Next, a method for attaching and detaching the portable device 10 and the in-vehicle device 100 will be described in detail. FIGS. 14A to 14C are cutaway cross-sectional views for explaining a method for attaching and detaching the portable device 10 and the in-vehicle device 100. In order to attach the portable device 10 to the in-vehicle device 100, as shown in FIG. 14A, a rib 162 formed on the side portion of the storage portion 170 and a recess 59 formed on the side portion of the portable device 10 are provided. It is necessary to insert the portable device 10 in the direction of the arrow in FIG. 14A in a state where the portable device 10 is tilted with respect to the storage portion 170 so as to engage with each other. In the state shown in FIG. 14A, the back surface of the portable device 10 is pressed against the support pin 164d against the urging force of the spring 164c.

  When the portable device 10 is inserted in the direction of the arrow shown in FIG. 14A, as shown in FIG. 14B, the recess 59 and the rib 162 are engaged, and the engagement groove 60 and the support pin are engaged. 164d is engaged. When the engagement groove 60 and the support pin 164d are engaged, the portable device 10 is supported in the state shown in FIG.

  At this time, the slope 163 is in sliding contact with the back surface of the portable device 10 to guide the portable device 10 to a position where the recess 59 and the rib 162 are engaged. The position where the recess 59 and the rib 162 are engaged is the position where the portable device 10 is mounted in the storage unit 170. That is, the slope 163 corresponds to a guide unit that guides the portable device 10 to the mounting position. This facilitates the mounting of the portable device 10.

  Next, when the portable device 10 is pushed into the storage portion 170 from the state shown in FIG. 14 (B), the lock portion 161 locks the portable device 10 and the portable device 10 as shown in FIG. 14 (C). 10 is attached to the storage unit 170.

  Next, removal of the portable device 10 from the storage unit 170 will be described. In order to remove the portable device 10 from the storage unit 170, the locked state by the lock unit 161 is released by pushing the removal button 160. As a result, the pushing portion 164 is biased from the back surface to the front surface of the portable device 10, so that the portable device 10 is partially pushed out of the storage portion 170 with the recess 59 and the rib 162 engaged. . That is, the portable device 10 is pushed out from the storage portion 170 in the state shown in FIGS.

  Note that the portable device 10 pushed out from the storage portion 170 is supported in the state shown in FIG. 14B when the engagement groove 60 and the support pin 164d are engaged. Specifically, the engagement state between the engagement groove 60 and the support pin 164d is maintained by the weight of the portable device 10. The user can remove the portable device 10 by lifting the portable device 10 supported by the support pin 164d slightly upward from the storage portion 170 and releasing the support pin 164d from the engagement groove 60.

  As described above, the portable device 10 is detached from the in-vehicle device 100. Further, as described above, the pushing portion 164 pushes the central portion of the portable device 10, specifically, between the left side surface and the right side surface. When the pushing position of the portable device 10 by the pushing portion 164 is close to the right side surface of the portable device 10, that is, the side ejected from the storage portion 170, the stroke necessary for pushing becomes large. If the stroke is large, the extrusion part may be enlarged. However, by pushing the central part of the portable device 10 as in this embodiment, the portable device 10 can be pushed out even with a small stroke, and the pushing portion 164 is downsized.

  It is also conceivable to arrange the pushing portion 164 on the left side of the storage portion 170. When the push-out unit 164 is arranged on the left side of the storage unit 170, the portable device 10 is pushed out so as to pivot about the left side surface, so that the stroke for pushing out the portable device 10 can be short. However, it is necessary to set a large force for pushing the portable device 10. For this reason, it is necessary to employ a spring having a large urging force. When a spring having a large urging force is employed, the force acting on the pushing portion 164 increases. As a result, the load on the extruding part 164 increases and may be damaged. Further, since the operation unit 132 and the like are provided on the left side of the storage unit 170, it is difficult to arrange the pushing unit 164 on the left side of the storage unit 170. Therefore, the above problem is prevented by disposing the pushing portion 164 behind the storage portion 170 as in the vehicle-mounted device 100 of the present embodiment.

  Further, as described above, when the portable device 10 is pushed out by the pushing portion 164, the portable device 10 is detachably supported by the engagement of the engagement groove 60 and the support pin 164d. The engagement groove 60 is formed at a central portion between the left side surface and the right side surface near the bottom surface of the portable device 10. Therefore, the portable device 10 is supported at the center on the bottom side. Since it is supported at the center on the bottom side near the center of gravity, the portable device 10 is stably supported. Note that “supported on the bottom surface side” means that the portable device 10 is supported at a position closest to the bottom surface among the right side surface, the left side surface, the top surface, and the bottom surface.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 13, the shielding portion 164 e closes a part of the escape hole 165 in a state where the portable device 10 is removed from the in-vehicle device 100. Thereby, in a state where the portable device 10 is detached from the in-vehicle device 100, it is possible to prevent the user from pinching a finger between the escape hole 165 and the pushing portion 164.

  Moreover, as shown in FIG. 13, the edge part 165a is formed along the side surface of the arm part 164b. For example, when the portable device 10 is attached to the storage unit 170, the left side surface of the portable device 10 may come into contact with the pushing portion 164, and force may be applied to the pushing portion 164 in the right direction in FIG. In such a case, it is possible to prevent the force applied to the pushing portion 164 from being dispersed by the edge portion 165a and concentrate the load on the shaft portion 164a. Thereby, the damage of the extrusion part 164 is prevented.

  Further, as described above, the slope 163 guides the portable device 10 to the mounting position. The reason why the slope 163 is thus provided will be described. Since the portable device 10 is thinner than the conventional device, the area of the left side surface is smaller than that of the conventional device. Therefore, if the slope 163 is not provided, the recess 59 formed on the left side surface of the portable device 10 and the rib 162 are difficult to engage with each other. By providing the slope 163, the thin portable device 10 can be easily attached to the in-vehicle device 100.

  Moreover, as shown in FIG. 13, the rib 162 is formed in a protruding shape that becomes thinner from the root side toward the tip side. Thereby, the rib 162 is easily engaged with the recess 59. The rib 162 has a chamfered tip. This prevents the portable device 10 from being damaged when the tip of the rib 162 and the right side surface of the portable device 10 come into contact with each other when the portable device 10 is attached to the storage unit 170. It is prevented from being damaged.

  Example 2 is an example in which a portable device has a strap hole. FIG. 15 is a rear view of the portable device 10. The portable device 10 has a strap hole 220 on a side surface. The strap hole 220 is a hole for connecting a string or the like to the portable device 10. For example, when the in-vehicle device 100 is exhibited, the strap hole 220 is used when a string or the like is tied to the portable device 10 to prevent the portable device 10 from being stolen.

  FIG. 15 is a side view when the portable device 10 is mounted on the front surface portion 120. The notch 169 is provided with a notch 222 that exposes the strap hole 220. Thus, the notch 169 exposes the strap hole 220 in a state where the portable device 10 is mounted in the storage (recess). Thereby, the string or the like tied to the strap hole 220 can be led out from the notch 169.

  In the first and second embodiments, the front surface portion 120 blocks the main body portion 110 in a state of being independent relative to the front surface of the main body portion 110 as shown in FIG. Further, as shown in FIG. 4, the front surface of the main body 110 is exposed in a state where the lower portion of the front surface 120 is slid to the front. As described above, the front surface portion 120 is movable. Further, the front surface portion 120 is supported by the main body portion 110 using a slider 181 so that the front surface portion 120 can move in this manner. As described above, in the first and second embodiments, the example having the front surface portion 120 and the main body portion 110 has been described. However, the front surface portion 120 is not movable and may be provided on the front surface of the in-vehicle device 100.

  In the first and second embodiments, the portable navigation device (portable navigation device) has been described as the portable device. The portable device may be any device that can be attached to the storage unit 170. When the portable device is a portable navigation device, it is required to increase the area of the display unit 11 as viewed from the front, and as a result, the storage unit 170 is enlarged. Therefore, it is effective to use the present invention.
