    The Problem is just that my dashboard texture is too pronounced and the phone - charger combo is too heavy for the glue...

    So... can this be mounted on the windshield glass or no? Thanks

    I now sawed off the ball joint, took the charging plate apart, drilled two holes in the lower case part and bolted them on a Brodit ProClip. Works very nicely. Luckily my vents are a bit driver-oriented, so the readability is pretty good.

    I didn't bother trying, I do not like things obstructing my vision. I really cannot believe how some people get the idea of mounting an intransparent 5" head-up display smack in their field of vision. (Poddie: Not implying that you would do it that way:-))

    I think if you mount it very low and not in the middle it works great. Just have to be smart about placement. ;-)

    Looking at the mount and the 928 photos and it seems the actual side grips may actually be gripping the camera key. I was thinking of getting this but think it will not fit.

    The actual pinch points on the side appear to be very small. There is maybe a 1 inch gap between the camera and the power on my Lumia 920. I do agree that the 928 looks to have a higher camera button than the 920/925, but the grip pad on the CR200 appear to only be maybe 0.5 inches, so it looks like it will fit the gap on all the phones.

    ALTHOUGH! For what it is worth...the Lumia 928 is NOT listed as a recommended phone, BUT, the CR-200 is not "available" in the US and the Lumia 928 is not available World Wide...so they aren't going to say they are compatible if you can't buy both in 1 country.

    I hope the designers kept this in mind. I have too many car holders that press the buttons on the side, I hope it will not be a problem. I hope the US version has a slightly different position for us 928 users. I was looking at the images and it is very close (maybe half the button)...are the grips rounded inward?

    Woot!
    I placed my order for a CR-200 from Clove UK yesterday.
    It shipped out today, and FedEx expects delivery to me in Canada on Monday morning.

    I've been reading this thread to see where I can mount mine.
    I think I'll stay away from the mounting pad and use the glass.
    As for vision, I think that Poddie is right. I'll just mount it lower and off to the corner to keep it out of my line of sight.

    I'll know better next week when I get it.

    I got the CR-200 today and it is a pretty sweet piece of kit. The only real problem I have with it is that the NFC part of the phone is on the wrong end! It only works on the top of the phone so if you put the phone in that way around the buttons get mashed by the holder. If you put it is the other way so the button don't get mashed, it doesn't trigger the NFC! So my work around is to tap the top of the phone against the NFC bit in the holder and put it in the other way! Also wish there was a way to automatically accept the NFC data without pressing accept on the phone.

    Same problem here, NFC wont start when just putting the phone inside the cradle.

    It will if you put the Top (or Nokia) end in the cradle nearest the NFC bit but then the buttons are in the wrong place! As I found out, it also helps if you turn on NFC on the phone!

    LOL!!
    I had the same problems.
    I installed mine this afternoon.
    And I discovered the same exact things;
    1) I had forgotten to turn on NFC.
    2) It doesn't work by simply inserting the phone into the cradle, you have to tap the top of the phone to the bottom of the holder before inserting the phone into the cradle. And then press accept.

    As for location, I placed mine on the windshield. Top left hand corner out of my line of sight.
    Time will tell if it falls off in hot weather.
    Has any one else noticed how shaky the thing is while driving?

    There is some good news.
    The cradle fits the 920 with an Otterbox Commuter case!
    And the wireless charging still works.

    There is some sad news.
    I ordered mine from Clove UK.
    The webpage says they wouldn't have stock for another few days, so I was surprized when it shipped out within 24 hours.
    Then when I looked at the box, and unpacked the unit, I realized I had received a used unit.
    Has anyone else who ordered from Clove received a used unit?

    Grrrr, bloody thing wouldn't pair this morning when I went to work. Deleted it from the accessories and now it won't even see it! Turned off NFC and turned it back on again, reset phone, checked the wires etc, nothing!

    Has anyone used the cr-200 with a lumia 928? Do the side bumpers press on the camera button? Thanks

    The lack of OS-wide landscape orientation support kind of hobbles the otherwise cool "car app" that Nokia made to go with this charger. And the need to approve NFC actions also dampens things somewhat. And it sounds like you need to choose between NFC/sensor alignment or blocked buttons. Otherwise this looks like a perfect piece of kit.

    Would have been very cool if the car app could turn on the microphone so you wouldn't need to press any buttons. If Kinect can have persistent microphone, why not my Lumia 920? I guess I need to get a 3rd party integrated Bluetooth stereo that somehow links to my existing steering wheel controls.

    I have the 928 and got the CR-200 from UK 2 weeks ago. What a pain this thing is. You have to tap the top of phone before putting in cradle, the stupid ball is attached to the back of it so you can't really use any other mounting method other than the suction cup without modifying the base. The side grip hits the camera button so it turns on when you press it on there (granted it wasn't loisted for the 928) so I am cutting about 1/4" off the rubber molding. Then its not even automatically loaded...I have to accept it? Really Nokia? Why would I put the phone in a Car cradle, download the app, put settings to launch my favorite apps on NFC contact with the CR200 if I didn't want it to launch immediately?

    All in all the materials and constructions are top notch. Use and functionality in a practical world are **** poor and I wonder if I would be better off getting a $10 Pep Boys holder....I have wired it to the back of my dash so no its too much of a pain to taker apart and send back...lol

    My Motorola car cradle was great and the car function launched as soon as I put the phone in but it was bulky and got I way of some AC controlsd. This thing is slimmer but not so great. I would give it a 3/5

    My CR-200 arrived (Canada via Mobilefun) and I really like it. For disclosure sake I was much more interested in the Qi charging than anything else so I might not be as particular as others here.

    My 920 fits securely in the charger, and it's permanently encased in a Speck case. The grip fits nicely between the camera and power buttons. Yes, the NFC requires an annoying amount of precision to pair with the charger, as others have pointed out, but I suspect I'll get better at it. It would have been a lot simpler to have NFC triggered when placing the phone on the cradle. The app that it launches is one that I recall installing on my 900 in the short time I used that, and I didn't know it was even on the 920. Big buttons, easy to use while driving. I only have use for Nokia Drive+ personally and having this charger/holder makes me realize (again) how limited Drive+ is without live traffic and Commute.

    I stuck the unit to the dash directly, without use of the extra base part. It's on quite securely but time will tell how easily it's transferable between vehicles. The main power cord is plenty long enough for any setup I can imagine, and it comes with an extension that I swear would be able to connect my dash to my trunk! The clips to secure the wire around the various fun parts of the console suck -- they stick to nothing -- but I'm sure I can find some outside agent to assist with that.

    The cigarette lighter plugin (do people still call it that??) has a USB port on it, allowing the simultaneous use of both the CR-200 and any other device connected via USB. I didn't read the specs beforehand so this was a pleasant surprise.

    I have noted that the phone sometimes becomes quite heated while in the charger. I also have noted that inconsistently with my array of DT-900 chargers.

    All in all I'm very satisfied with the CR-200. I have developed a fairly unhealthy devotion to not having to plug something into my phone to charge it and this pretty much completes my setup.

    any idea where to get this app ?? i use NFC tags in the car for maps & music but the big button app would be much better

    My apologies. It turns out the app I was remembering was Nokia Car Mode for Symbian. My E7-00 was the last in a long line of Symbian devices pre-Windows Phone. I don't know now if such a creature exists for WP 7.x.
