Horizontal In-car holder for the 9500

Hi All,

I'm currently looking at GPS/SATNav for my 9500. After reading Steve's reviews, I must say that the TOMTOM 5 options is looking quite impressive.

I was wondering if anybody has come across a carkit/phone holder for the 9500, that allows the clamshell to remain open?

Thanks in advance!

Irregular

I asked this same question on the forum of my-symbian.com, I was given a few sites to look at, but in the end I opted for a cheap magnet from carphonewarehouse (although I did need another magnet for the back of my phone to stop it rocking).

All in all, I think it cost 4.99

So far I have found 2 places selling a car holder for my 9500,

www.communicator-shop.de

I ordered my holder from there,

Or,

www.mobilefun.co.uk/navicore

Ok, so the holder comes with the Navicore software (Worth considering),

I have had my TomTom Mobile 5 on order for over 2 weeks and still no delivery, Navicore is available for 2-3 day delivery from Mobile Fun,

If only I'd known that before I ordered from TomTom,

There is one problem with the holder, it has damaged the paint on my 9500 where the handsfree would clip on, (The 2 side indents),

Carl,

Thanks!

Thanks for the advise and comments....

Thanks again,

Irregular

Carl,
Do these systems work in the us? I see that navicore comes with an mmc card with UK streets on it, can you download us maps too?

As far as I know, TomTom do have US maps but they are not available on the 9500 yet,
www.tomtom.com


Navicore only appear to be doing European maps so far,
