    I recently bought a motorola car kit for my V60i. While I was installing it,
    I noticed that it has a USB socket, though this isn't mentioned in the
    manual. What's it for?

    I assume it's for a mobile connection to the Internet, in the same way as
    the "data cables" that are available. If so, what software is required and
    where can I get it from? Also, the connection between the brain and the
    cradle uses a 9-pin D connector, just like a PC serial port. Is this a
    coincidence, or can it usefully be connected to a computer?

    Thanks for any help,

    Pete

    Most likely you can plug a computer into the USB port of the car kit, so as
    to make data calls through the car kit via the phone - same as you would be
    connecting the phone directly to the laptop.

    Well yes, that's what I thought. But what software is necessary / available,
    for data calls, and could it also be used for tweaking phone settings or
    downloading Java apps to the phone?
