The Richter adapter plate has to be used to connect the GPS cradle to either the windscreen gooseneck or the vent mount. There is a circular recess in the adapter plate, which engages with a protrusion on the back of the GPS cradle when the two units are coupled together.
The gooseneck was easily bent to shape to fit my Audi A3 and it fitted snugly in either a central position or to the right of the driver. The attachment to the windscreen was positive but it is always advisable to have the lower part of the mount in contact with the dashboard.
The GPS receiver, which is on the back of the cradle, should be angled to give the best satellite reception but generally it will be at right angles to the back of the cradle.
Next attach the cable between the output socket on the left-hand side of the cradle and the audio output socket on the iPAQ.
Finally, attach the power cable to the socket on the right-hand side of the cradle and plug the other end into the car cigarette lighter socket.
All of this is very obvious but at least you have a printed User’s Guide to follow, although its English is a bit "quaint".
