    Default Cradle me?

    So the XP has CD70 pratt nav, and bluetooth. With 3 points on the license for using a phone already I was quite pleased about that.

    My question is should I bother shelling out lots of money for the actual cradle for my i-phone, or is it no better than bluetooth on it's own?

    If I just use bluetooth, can I do away with the base unit and get a trusty coin tray back there, or is it hard wired?

    Does it improve call quality, as the standard bluetooth isn't great at motorway speeds? If I thought it'd make it better I'd source one. Any thoughts?

    I have a feeling all you will need is a bluetooth update.

    I recently bought an Iphone cradle to use in my car, which is a 2006.
    Anyway the phone sat in the charger lovely but would only charge for a few seconds and then nothing. I just gave up and changed phones.

    I recently tried the same cradle in Mark the Cabby's car which is a 2009 and guess what, it worked perfectly.
