Apple iPhone cradle for VW Golf TDI MK5
Many people will know that for years I've been using a simple technology to mount my iPhone on the dashboard of my MX5 and now, the Golf TDI. It's been great, simple, clean, effective and simple to attach and remove the iPhone from the dash. However, the time has come for a rethink.
After a time, the velcro fastener wears and the adhesive weakens, so I've been checking out iPhone accessories to see what alternatives there are. I've found this product... Brodit Passive Holder with Tilt & Swivel.
This comes with a bracket for fixing to the dashboard, but this means drilling holes which I'm never keen to do as at some point I will want to sell the car on.
To overcome this, I found another product called a Brodit ProClip which is made by the same manufacturer and uses an innovative clip which makes use of the tiny gaps in the dashboard between the plastic panels. A special tool is inserted to open the gap whilst the clip is pushed into position. The clip simply locks into place.
Fab, no holes, no drilling, no damage.
