Tomtom dash cradle
« on: October 26, 2010, 12:44:35 pm »
Can anyone help with where to buy the tomtom cradle to fit the blue and me dash socket. I want to use a standard (non B and M) tomtom but can't find the cradle for sale anywhere despite having the part number. There is one avaialbe from Alfa but I'm not sure if it is identical to the one used for Abarth/Abarth
Thanks

    The cradle will only work with the official B&M tom tom I'm afraid.

    Wow, that was quick thanks! Yes, I realise it won't offer b and m funtionality but I'm just wanting it to charge (and dock without wires) non B and M tomtom. I understand the cradle will fit the newer tomtoms and charge.

    Your only hope would be go direct to Tom Tom.
    If you have an Abarth 500 you wouldn't have the port anyway.

    I have tried TomTom but they say they are only supplied by Fiat or Abarth. I have a Fiat rather than an Abarth. Alfa seem to make them available to buy as accessories but I don't know if it's the same cradle.

    As the UK Abarth 500s have never had a socket you'd prob be better off asking the Fiat 500 owners on FF who I'm sure will be able to help out. Although going back to when I was looking at them if I remember correctly it was a specific Fiat satnav not generic tomtoms.
