I seem to remember having read that the phone cradle is one of those that convert your cell phone into a speaker phone. Does anyone know if this feature is availale from factory or is it an add-on accessory?

Either way, does anyone know what cell phone model it takes (for speaker phone, of course)? It seems like a Nokia but can't tell which model.

I'm only asking because I'm in the process of ordering a cell phone.

Would be nice but

Well it would be nice but the cradle (from what I have read) will hold the phone and that is about it. You have to think for the system to be able to be a speaker phone there would have to be multiple connections for the different types of phones. The phone plugs are not all the same.

dntsne1 and federico:

I looked at one this morning! There's just a little holder in the middle console with a place for your phone to slide down into. Beside the base is a power plug for your car charger. Unless I have my hands-free cord plugged into my phone, I'll end up dragging the charger cord up through the holder.:rolleyes:

I'll try to remember to let you know how it works - my Pilot should be here by Wednesday!:2: :2: :2:

My phone doesn't fit

Sure sign that you need to update your cell phone: When it's too long to fit in the new Pilot phone cradle.

When plugged into its charger, the plug causes it to stick out the top of the cradle, so I can't close it. Not too neat. Will have to get a smaller phone -- it's time anyway...

Anyone recommend a phone that fits perfectly?

Cradle

I agree. My Motorola v60t fits like the cradle was made for it.

I'm waiting for PanaVise to make a mount for the Pilot. It is similar to the ProFit mounts but it seems that PanaVise is quicker at launching new models.

In my S2000, space is very limited and I did not want any holes so I went with the PanaVise mount. Works extremely well too!

A friend of ours has an MDX and I ordered a PanaVise mount for them, they love it. I'll see if I can get pictures soon of that install.

I work with AT&T Wireless, so when it is available, I will let you all know and we can set up a buy at cost or something!;)

For the time being, here's a pic of the PanaVise mount in my car.



BTW, my wife has a Nokia 3360 and it fits very well in the built in cradle.:D
