Phone Cradle

Has anyone who has the cradle installed noticed a difference in reception? I'm getting one put in on Tuesday and was wondering if the cars antenna makes a noticeable difference in signal strength vs. the phone.

Thanks.

Don't have it yet. But wondering, are all cradles the same, regardless of the brand/type of phone, or do I need to specify a cradle specific to my phone? Plan on getting it next week.
Thanks,

cradles

You defenitely need a specific cradle for each phone. The number of cradle types is very limited

Yes, the cradle is phone specific. Btw, make sure they have the base plate before you waste your time at the dealer. I went in a couple weeks ago and sat there while they tried to install my cradle w/o the plate and then realized they had to order one. You might want to give them a call to be sure before you waste your time. My plate just arrived so I'm heading back in Tuesday next week.

My phone cradle was installed yesterday and I love it. The cradles are in two pieces: a generic base plate and a cradle that is specific to each phone. Be sure your phone is supported before bothering with ordering. I have a Motorola V710 and it works great. Not sure about the improvement in reception. I mainly wanted it for two reasons: an onboard charger for long trips and for the roof antenna to avoid radiation exposure. It took almost a month for the order to come in. I've got the CD changer on order too and it's backordered for over 5 weeks now.
