Well here we are I now have the new iPAQ hx4700 and nothing to mount it in my car other than a generic one so I thought it was an ideal time to review one of these pass through Brodit holders.
What do you get?
The mount comes in two pieces: the mount itself and a tilt/swivel base. You will also get a number of self tapping screws to fit the mount to the base.
What else do you need?
To complete the mount you will need to invest in a ProClip.
You do not get a ProClip by default, this has to be ordered separately to suit your car make and year. Selecting the correct clip can be problematical and has caused angst with quite a few users in the past. If you are a little uncertain about the clip you require please confirm the precise one with your supplier when you order.
The other thing you will need is some form of power supply to connect the PDA to the power supply and possibly the GPS. This will normally be provided with your GPS or a cigarette lighter power adapter, which will simply plug into the socket at the bottom of the mount.
Fitting the Mount
Fitting the mount is simple. All you need is a crosshead screwdriver and a fine drill. The drill is not strictly required, but will help to locate the screws.
It is best to mount the tilt/swivel base on the Proclip first, and then screw the mount on to the base. The assembled mount can then be clipped onto the car in the correct position.
Behind the PDA you will find three screws. The top and bottom ones are the mount fixing screws. The centre one adjusts the tension of the tilt/swivel movement. Tightening it will increase the friction and make the mount more difficult to move.
