Due to different housing design of new models, they need to make new cradle. The number is going to increase.

Ok, 7xx series and 2xx series use different cradles. What about the newer range like the 13xx and 14xx? Anybody know if they will fit into the 7xx cradles? (I'm guessing won't fit into 2xx from what I can see)

I doubt the 1000 series will fit the 700 series. 1) Makes no business sense 2) different GPS size and thickness.

Watch your :$gone: :$gone: :$gone:

right... that's why I was thinking it would be interesting to work out which GPS units will fit into which cradles. There are so many different models

465 uses the same cradle as 205, 255 and 265
