Massive thanks to Mobilefun.co.uk for sending me this Nokia Accessory for review, Im sorry its taken so long to publish, but better late that never. You can checkout Mobilefun.couk range of mobile device in-car holders here.
If you have more than one Nokia mobile device, and like to switch between devices during traveling then the Nokia CR-115 In-Car Mobile device holder is for you. Just like device specific in-car holders from Nokia, the CR-115 Universal holder comes with the usual suction mount (HH-20), which you can leave in place on your windscreen, and interchange Nokia phone holders easily by simply twisting to remove, and twisting to replace.
I have the N97 Specific Nokia In-Car holder, which is specifically designed just for that one handset, but my N97 also fits snuggly into the Universal holder too.
I have tried several Nokia devices in the Nokia CR-115, and most fit very well, however, depending on device, the amount of pressure required to clamp in the device varies.
The CR-115 from Nokia is a simple solution which basically uses a ratchet type grip, and a fast release button.
Whilst the CR-115 is open, place your Nokia device into the padded jaws, align to your liking, then squeeze the jaws together to grip your Nokia tightly, ensuring your buttons, and charge ports are free in case you wish to use these during your car journey.
The construction of the CR-115 is solid, hard plastic, with padded jaws, and the above mentioned spring/ratchet mechanism. Its simple, but does what its supposed to do well. The Nokia Universal Holder CR-115 measures 66 mm x 64 mm x 34 mm.
Although Nokia don’t show the Nokia N8 as compatible with the CR-115, I can confirm it does, although I found personally you need to add a little extra tension on the ratchet/jaws to hold it securely without it coming loose during travel.
Nokia do state in their compatibility list however that the E7, the 4″ touch screen device fits well in the Nokia CR-115.
Summary – A very simple plastic accessory from Nokia that does its job well, and caters for many Nokia handsets. The Nokia CR-115 is available now over at Mobilefun.co.uk for just £19.95. Direct Link Also checkout Nokia E71 car holder.
