If you want a holder which charges and connects to an aerial for use with a bluetooth kit THB-Bury do a System 9 base plate and cradle for about £54 through their UK importer chameleondirect.com It doesn't look as neat as Nokia cradles but as there isn't one made, there's not much choice. I've just ordered one, so I'll let you know how it goes. The cradle isn't showing on the site so you'll need to phone them. Base plate details here: http://www.chameleondirect.com/base-unit-accessories
There's also a cheaper THB active holder which just charges but looks neat. Here: http://www.chameleondirect.com/nokia_2 If you look around further you'll find it for about 35 quid. Hope this helps
Thanks Mike I got the CKB-Bury kit today and it looks excellent - very well made. The phone slides in exactly, and the aerial feed cable and power cable have connectors that clip straight in. I think I'd probably have to cut the power cable as I don't seem to be able to find a power feed plug for phones in my Merc E200. This might be your alternative to using a cigar lighter plug - and I don't imagine that any third party solutions will have a plug to fit into the Nokia CK-7W... unless your supplier knows otherwise?
Incidentally, the 5.5 upgrade I did on my wife's 6300 phone seems (so far) to have eradicated the echo problems on bluetooth. Let's hope.
Thanks Mike Do let us know when you hear about the launch of the 3rd party cradle - who makes it, where we can see photos, any info really. I wonder if it is a full hands free wired, or still uses the bluetooth. If it is full wired then it might be compatible with older pop-port kits. Cheers Colin
