    anybody ever consider getting a spare treo cradle, velcro-ing it to your dashboard, and connecting the car-power-adapter to it, as a home-brew car kit?

    I'm getting tired of waiting for some kind of powered car cradle that doesn't involve sticking to the windshield. What I really want is a cradle attached to a cigarette-lighter plug, like the bazillion nokia car kits out there. (just charging - the speaker-phone will suffice for audio.) Why isn't anybody doing this?

    I'm with you here. I just got my Treo and will be getting a cradle soon to modify. I plan on figuring out a way to power the cradle so it will charge when in use and articulate when mounted.

    I guess there is just not enough interest in car cradles to have one specifically for each device. People like cheap cig lighter adapter cables that eventually break and clutter up their rides.

    Have you guys checked out the cradles at proclip? They really kick *** and the holder for the treo fits it so well!

    They don't provide power for charging the Treo. I know it provides access to the connection so you can charge it with the car charger cable but that is not what I want. I want to be able to set the Treo in the cradle and not have to hook up another cable.

    These might be useful to help create what we are looking for tho..

    Thanks,
