    I've had a hard-wired Brodit mount for my HP iPaq 4700 in my current Sportback since March 2007 and I had a similar mount in my previous A3 for nearly 3 years and no problems at all.

    I have just purchased a new TomTom sat/nav and have another Brodit mount on order for that.

    Are they easy to instal? where do you feed the red and black wire to?

    I think in my present set-up the red wire is connected to an existing feed wire to the radio using a 'scotch-lock' connector and the black wire to an existing black wire in the same way.

    With the new mount I have just ordered I have gone for one with a 12v socket plug on the end (Brodit 215201). I already have an existing in-line 12v socket connected to an earth fixing bolt and a spare live connector in the fuse box at the driver's end of the dash for a Micro-Go camera unit. I have a 12v socket doubler and I intend to use this so that both the Brodit for the TomTom and the MicroGo can both be plugged into the 12v in-line socket. I will then wrap the whole thing in foam to prevent an rattles. There is quite a bit of room available behind the dash.

    Thanks again ... really helpful.
    The active holders are quite pricey (compared to the passive) ...but I think they are worth it!
    Thanks
