    Right all one little thing im looking at changing is the dreaded standard audi phone holder.

    Im not bothered about Bluetooth connectivity but its bugging me just sitting there, I have an iphone4 and plan to hold onto it for a while so i was thinking if theres a universal cradle anyone has managed to bolt on just to even hold the phone?

    I would rather put it to use and hold my phone there than it just be some thing hanging off the dash.

    Had a look through some threads but most seem to be concerned about bluetooth connectivity.

    I know Audi sell one but i dont want to pay £100 for the bluetooth, i would rather just something to hold my phone on that cradle.

    Thats great. I think I have a similar phone holder on my car and not even thought about paring ot via bluetooth. Didnt even think that would work.

    Will give it a shot tomorrow. Am guessin the functionality will go once I stick in my new sat nav system

    Brodit do a good range of Pro Clip Brackets and phone holders.

    They do them to suit Iphone4 with or without bumper.

    Nice one!!

    I don't think there is a cradle that will fit the audi kit for an iphone4.
    I asked at the dealers a while back and the guy told me not to hold my breath for one.

    Will have a look on brodit to even retro fit it to my current cradle!

    It works like a charm i just called the house phone and spoke to my sister LOL.

    Pretty suprised as i had a Alpine KCE-400BT in my t-sport and that wouldnt pair amazingly well with my iphone 4 kept having issues, This hooked up no problem searched on the phone found Audi HSC something connected, PIN: 1234 done!

    Mike give it a try im pretty sure it should hook up via bluetooth no problem as when i was looking for compatibility on the iphone4 it was bleak, The only decent car kit that actually worked was the tom tom one.

    Even the latest alpine bluetooth module i had suffered with issues.

    No need to apologise, there was a system issue while back where it double posted, hence my question, if you click edit on your message then has delete option. :)

    Well had a look at brodit and i cant see anything being able to fit ontop of the original cradle or in place. If i was to remove the cradle and reattach my own would this be possible and still keep the bluetooth running?
