    Hi

    I'm faced with having to install two new car kits in the coming few weeks.

    Both cars will need equipment for a 6310i but I'm loath to fit two std
    Nokia kits as I understand the 5310i is the last of the generation?

    I'm wondering how to 'future proof' things and I'm toying with the idea of
    looking for a blue tooth solution.

    However, my initial results indicate that blue tooth is a bit fiddly. It
    appears to me that you have to switch blue tooth on and off as you
    enter/exit the car. If you don't remember to switch it off when you leave
    the car then you can't answer calls on the handset.

    Or is there a good quality car kit on the market with swappable cradles?

    Any thoughts, observations or suggestions?

    Re: Best car kit option for 6310i

    I've found the Nokia carkit 112 great over the couple of years I've used it.
    It's not true that you can't answer calls on the handset if you forget to
    turn bluetooth off, in fact when I had a 6310i I kept the BT on permanently
    with no discernible effects on battery life

    Yes, I have just had one fitted to a new Toyota
    Avensis. It has swappable cradles, was supplied
    by Unipart and fitted by Vodafone.

    Thanks for clearing that up re BT ON/OFF

    I don't know how much difference it makes, but I guess with a BT car kit
    you don't have the benefit(?) of an external antenna?

    Yes you're right, with no physical connection between the two there is no
    external antenna. Not a problem with the 6310i though as it is such a great
    phone for reception, far better than the miserable T610 I've been stuck with
    over the past 6 months (which also works with the CARK112 kit by the way).
    Currently waiting for a 6230 to arrive and get back to Nokia - can't come a
    moment too soon!

    But maybe a problem for your body. The radiation from the phone is
    VERY high inside a car with no external antenna :-(

    Aaarrggghhhh..!!! The ***RADIATION*** - !!!!!

    If the phone is in a cradle and not against the side of your head it makes
    little difference. Do a google search on "inverse square law" before
    talking rubbish..!

    There has been studies in scandinavia that show the level VERY high in
    the whole car when using a phone (we're talking 10-100 times normal).
    This is because the signals refelect against the metal body of the
    car, and stay inside. The phone also raises it's transmitting effect
    to max to be able to get som signals out of the car to the basestation

    No nonsense I',m afraid :-(

    This was serious tests, government founded as well :-(

    Sorry but I've never been one to believe anything any government told me,
    thanks..! Did you read up about the inverse square law..?

    Ref, other reply. This has been a hot topic in Scandinavia and the EU,
    and several reports conclude that the EM-radiation inside the
    metal-shielding of the car get VERY high (and that VERY high :-)

    Are you willing to take the risk ?
