Hi all,

I've searched and I don't think it's been asked before...

Is there to be an iPhone cradle?

Thanks

Ben.

"but no charging unless you have an unsightly wire?"

Yes, that's right... but the charge last all day long.

BTW, I too have searched for an iPhone cradle to no avail.

I talked to the R8 Advocate Team about phone cradles, and they told me that Audi is moving away from them because phones and phone technology is changing so fast. They expect bluetooth technology to be what most people rely on for in-car connectivity.

SatNavSystems (link in earlier post) installed the bluetooth connectivity for me and it works fine with my iphone. They also installed ipod connectivity too
but this is a separate cable connection in the glovebox - iphone incompatible unfortunately.

I use a BlackBerry phone, but my owner's manual includes instructions for syncing an iPhone to the car. My car was delivered just last week. Is this something that was added later in the production run?
