    Well, got my 700p from Verizon yesterday, and set it up today. So far, the only problem I have found is that my car cradle (Seidio G4500M) does provide power, but no audio output and no GPS signal. Anyone found any compatible cradles yet?

    Pixi: Sold. Pre: Passed off to another rep. Touchpad: Just a toy until Cloud syncing arrives, and a better doc editor.

    The G4500M has built in GPS and speaker as well. They just don't work with my 700p

    I have sent e-mail to Seidio, but don't expect a reply until after the holiday.

    Thanks David. Glad to see you here on your own time.

    BTW, MyTreo.com is advertising two car cradles as being 700p compatible. Since you guys aren't sure yet, how can they be?

    Seidio has the car cradle for 700W. For 700P, we are still testing it.

    One correction: I just found that I have a G4850M, which doesn't work with my 700p

    Can you elaborate? It didn't fit, or software wouldn't work, or what? My colleague has a G4850M w/ his Treo 650 and is drooling over my 700p, but wants to confirm it will work w/ the GPS.

    Fits just fine, and shows the power re-charge light is on. However, it does not connect with the GPS unit, and the earphone jack doesn't provide a connection for the speaker/cassette recorder.

    Please read my messages. The 700p DOES NOT WORK with G4850M, It will fit (physically), and it will recharge. The earphone jack does not work, and the GPS does not work.

    Seidio is checking on all of their cradles.

    Has anyone else not gotten it to work either? This would suck seeing as it looks like a really awesome GPS solution for the car.

    This is the reason why I thought getting a separate BT GPS receiver was a better idea!

    I agree with you now gfunk. I purchased the G4850M Tom Tom bundle back in January only to find out the cradle doesn't work with the 700P. That forced me to buy a new cradle for the 700P (4100 model) and I bought a BT receiver so next time I just have to buy a regular cradle if my next smartphone isn't compatible.

    David,
    I'm a bit disappointed. Not Sedio's fault, but understanding was that all of the accessories for the 650 would work with the 700P. Any chance you guys will be offering a trade-in/rebate for "recent purchasers?" I bout mine last Christmas.

    I have posted versions of this question in two other threads (and it is on-topic for this thread), but I have not received any responses. I am hoping that someone following this thread has the answer and will post it: Does anyone know whether this is a Seidio-specific issue or something we should expect from accessories supplied by other vendors? In alternate wording, what is the difference between the 650 and the 700p that required Seidio to make a change in their product, and is this something that is likely to affect a wide range of accessories?
