The CR-200 is one of those more mysterious accessories that gets talked about but not really seen in person. Well, one user on reddit got theirs and have taken a bunch of pictures to share. There’s a car plug, a sticky bit if you want to put it on the dashboard or the traditional window sucker thingy. The NFC capable bit is to activate content such as a more car friendly landscape UI.

Whilst it’s not designed to be a car dashboard camera, you can move it slightly out to perhaps record video (like all them famous Russian dashboard cameras on YouTube that also keeps frequenting Reddit)

    The last screen? This is an app or what? It looks like car mode or something like that, can You tell me what it is and how can I get something like that on Lumia 920?

      It’s a more car friendly UI, like Car mode on Symbian; activated by the NFC in the charger.

      • Damian R

        Thx for reply. It’s great, shame it’s only for this charger :(

      • jlanza

        Do you have to install it or is it part of the accesories application on nokia lumias?

        • Furiosity

          It’s part of accessories software.

          • jlanza

            I would be nice if you can do one thing. Could you use an android phone with NFC and read the content of the tag? There is an application that reads the actual content.

            This way I can create a tag that emulates the behaviour of the CR-200 ;)

  • JGrove303

    This is out!?! I’ve waited a good long-ass time for this!

  • Viipottaja

    Damned hard to text or play a game while driving when it’s in the holder though…

    • Janne

      We know what you are playing and watching in the car!

  • MarcSilverTriple

    Like the DT-910, there is a way to launch the specific landscape UI with a NFC tag (use NFC interactor and program Nokia Accessories (replace dt910 by cr200): works well :)

    • Chris

      Do you need a serial number from the cr-200 mount?

  • twig

    Hopefully we in the U.S. will be able to buy these at the new Windows Stores at best buy. A first for Americans to walk in a store and find quality accessories from Nokia. The X Burton accessory we hear we may get in 2019. 😊.

    Besides the “car mode”, I don’t quite understand this accessory. Wireless Charging is all well and good, but in this case there is still a wire running up to the holder. I could achieve the same charging result if I directly plugged my charger into my phone while the phone rested on a cheap conventional phone holder.

      Saves you the step of plugging it in. That’s less wear on the micro usb port.

    Has this charger enough power for charging during long trips while using nokia HERE Drive+ navigation?

    • vojta66

      Yes, it is really charging phone to 100% while driving and using HereDrive+ navi. Personally tested!

    This was really very nice and we can charge the phone without any hassle. Did we can use this set for two way purpose like holding and charging?
