The Nokia CR-201 mystery continues

Nokia sent me a new Wireless Charging Car Holder CR-201. Remember, the old CR-200 no longer worked with the Lumia 930. I unpacked the box, and it looked exactly the same. Exactly. The. Same. It even had a CR-200 sticker underneath.

This was clearly a mistake. A CR-200 in a CR-201 box. But before I called, I compared the old CR-200 and the new CR-200 very carefully. And I did find a difference:

There is a small cut-out in the pads that hold the phone. This is how it avoids pushing the camera button. And it appears to be the only difference. I hope that Nokia thought about offering replacement pads for customers which complain their CR-200 no longer fits. And if they haven't, it is clearly a DIY project, as you now know what the pads should look like.

Is this fix satisfactory? I am afraid not. Even with the cutout, it still pushes on one end of the 930 photo button. I will have to scrape off more material.

Das ist ja mal pragmatisch gelöst 😐

Hi,

another question: On amazon, there are a coulple of poeple complainging that the cr 201 doesnt deliver enough power to charge phones with activ navigation.

What is your experience with that?

I have not run into this problem. However, my longest ride was four hours and I always start with a full battery. Lots of wireless chargers.
