Ahh right, a nice way of doing it, just tuck the cable out of the way, yeah I'd love to see a picture or two of this, and I'm sort of coming round to thinking it might be a useful feature to have the phone on the end of a wire anyway maybe, for stationary / passenger use. > > Is there something about having to drop the microphone out and change a wire > > over or something? > > Yes.

Unk, another poster mention that it's possible, so maybe it's worth a go. > If the dealer really is talking genuine nokia kit they are keeping it > *very* quiet. I looked extensively in the past (both on- and off-line) > and found nothing. Yeah, tell me about it - I still haven't gotten around to calling them. But, I did contact the Dashmount (www.dashmount.co.uk) people and they will come and fit an 'aftermarket' kit for £189+vat, which is significantly cheaper than the dealer price - I'll try and get details of what that kit is - it's probably a THB one! All the best, thanks for the info everyone. Simon.
