    I keep my HTC under neath the climate control unit as it's got a rubber case, it doesn't slide around.
    We sell those Clingo things where I work, the windscreen mounts seem to be spot on. Also, Maplin do a proper 3G or iPhone 4 windscreen or dash holder, rotates multiple ways, seem to be decent too.

    Don't have an iPhone, but my phone either stays in my pocket (connects over bluetooth) or goes on the little roller bit that covers the cup-holder under the armrest. Don't use it for music though, so don't have that worry.

    Me too - not an iphone but smartphone stays in pocket or in roller bit if it needs charging.

    Bluetooth connects automatically and displays on DIS

    Sorry to drag up an old thread , but I've been looking to do a custom cradle install into the coin drawer , but in the process of looking for parts I found this :

    AUDI8PV2I

    however for me it may be no good (bit pricey for one , looks like it may get in the way of climate controls and I may want to put a processor control unit in there)

    but I did find this , that I may be able to *******ise to fit in the coin tray

    iphone 4 - black charging docking station with 3.5mm line out


    If anybody knows of other concealed/stealth Iphone/Ipod cradles I would appreciate the info.

    one note : ideally I would like to be able to see my iphone so thats why I havent put it in the glove box

    You can do that as others have aswell, but just make sure its solid in place as you dont want to flipping forward & find the screen cracked from an impact from some speedy manoeuvre.

    That one looks quiet good. The universal dick holders it uses are also good snug fits. I have one of the universal docks at home for my iphone 4 that works really well

    I had one of these before getting the apple universal dock and I have to say it's awful! The iPhone flops around in I and doesn't sit properly not to mention it just falls out of the dock as the connector does not click at all
