    The reason i ask (apart from the blatent plugging of my signature search for some new alloys) i am thinking of getting a USB socket fited inside my glovebox, and exploring ways to hardwire my Garmin sat nav.
    Looking for inspiration guys (and gals).

    Is that a replacement of the ash tray.

    I have an unused ashtray and card holder that could be better utilised.

    Yeah I wanted to make a proper iPhone 4holder in the astray part. But yet to pull my finger out! I had a decent set up with the 3GS which was quality! Used to watch tv etc on it but pulled it all put when got the 4.

    BIG difference, well worth the upgrade!

    Newer model as mentioned.

    That area will be looking very different soon......:wub:

    I bought the Parrot 900 or something and its linked into the concert system so whateva ipod/mp3 player etc i plug in via glovebox i have a little control where i am sat which i can flick through albums,artists, most played etc etc Also it has bluetooth so when i have a call coming through it automatically pauses the song tells me who is calling and i can answer the call via the remote.

    Pretty awesome :)
