Iphone Holders?

30 posts in this topic

Hi guys, just a quick question really to see if you guys know of any iPhone holders that don't need to be stuck to the windscreen? I hate the 'suction circle' type look that is left after using SatNavs!

I got myself an itrip fm transmitter which plugs into ur ciggy lighter with a bendy arm which lets u position it pretty much wherever u want.

It has to be Brodit. http://www.brodit.co...it.html?pn=home

They do powered and passive mounts which attach to brackets which you fit into the gaps on your dash.

They're not the cheapest but they are the best.

Ah cheers buddy they look ace! Look really smart and they don't seem to appear to stick out too far or be in the way etc. Thanks man.

Love the idea of them, although reading through it says 'Will not work with iPhone 4'. Doh!!

Brodit is the way to go..if you're lucky you can get the holder and cradle on eBay dirt cheap (like I did)

Managed to get the holder for £9 (RRP £15) and the iPhone Charging Cradle for £30 (RRP £50)

I've been browsing eBay for a while looking for the right parts, most of them are 'Buy It Now' straight from Brodit for full price..but there's been one or two recently that are auction style, just keep an eye out

Just curious why you need one, My iphone sits in my pocket and I use Bluetooth for Phone and playing mp3's as well as the sat nav voice cutting in over the radio if need be.

If it needs charging I use a USB lead, so not sure why you want a full time cradle that advertises the fact there may be a phone in the car.

Hi mate, it's just basically to make things a little easier really. I work in the BTCC (British Touring Car Championship) so I'm driving a good 7/8 hours at a time nearly weekly with other projects too so it's more for I guess 'business' use as it'll make making calls easier without having to play around whilst driving. It won't be permanently in there, but for when I have my big journeys i.e. South Essex to Edinburgh and back in just over 2 weeks time!

MY holder has a built in charger so my battery doesn't go flat by the time I arrive ;)

I also use use my phone for sat nav so it's in a perfect position to glance at the map when driving.

Definitely need the charging option, safe bet and two birds with one stone then! I like it iNath :) What programme on your phone do you use for satnav?

Me too... and if you stream music via bluetooth, the speech directions are transmitted through the car speakers too!
