    It is hideously expensive at around £100 but it's worth every penny for the ability to charge your phone and connect it to the sharkfin. Have the same cradle although mine's in the armrest as I couldn't stand it on the dash but that's just me

    iPhones won't connect to the sharkfin as there is no aerial out on the phone. The cradles for iPhones are just chargers, same with BMW ones.

    No, it clips onto the factory fitted dock. There are a myriad of different cradles for different phones that clip onto the standard dock, whether it's the dash mounted option or arm rest option.
