I have an iMate SP5, and want a car handsfree solution.

I see Expansys have a cradle, which seems quite generic, and wonder if I'd be better pressed just getting a standard Bluetooth headset or car kit and a car charger for about the same price?

The SP2 I had before this had pretty bad bluetooth, and I rang support and they recommended I only use some brand I'd never heard of.  Can anyone recommend me a good answer?

The SP5 runs on Windows Mobile 5, and I have two Pocket PCs on the same OS, paired with a Blueant X3 headset. I am pretty sure Blueant have some interesting devices on their site.

The cool stuff about this headset are the size, and it comes with a car charger as well as a USB cable for charging from your PC. You can find their products at DSE and Telecom stores.

Jabra is another good brand of course...

How about for keeping the phone sat somewhere/charged?  

DSE have some Jabra earpieces, but the one that I had trouble with was a GN NetCom, which bought Jabra... not sure if I'm hanging hope on that.  The BlueAnt in car thing could be useful, though I'd probably rather a wearable one.
