Hi, seeing that Nokia no longer have car kits, they are not pretty much just wired hansfree speaker/mic or bluetooth. 

There is a device that plugs to the cigarette lighter for power.  But what happens if one is already using that for the GPS?  Solution?


Thanks.

You can buy a cig lighter double adaptor so that you can plug two devices into the on cig lighter socket.

Or a car stereo with USB (and use usb charging on one of the devices), both my phone and gps charge off USB, or one can use cigarette lighter and the other can use the stereo. Of course a double adapter would be cheaper. But new stereo much more fun!!

New stereo not an option as I have an Audi and the stereo blends into the other stuff like the aircon etc ..

Is it possible to have it wired to the electrical system of the car?  A double adaptor looks goofy.
