(you may ignore all the chitchat, my question is in bold ;-) )
Hi! I'm new here so I hope I'm in the right section. I searched for "Ibiza" and "Cradle" but couldn't find anything.
So, in 2009 I bought a new Seat Ibiza with a built in cradle for TomTom devices and got a free TomTom One with the car. That loyal buddy has guided me on many roads for the past 4 years but I sense she's getting ready to retire. So, I want to purchase a new device. Is the cradle (fitted on the centre of the dashboard), from back in 2009, still compatible with all current TomTom devices? I live in Belgium (if that matters).
This is what the cradle looks like:
Though the plug looks more like this (the above picture seems to contain a different one):
And - this might be the wrong question to pose here - are there options to install a GPS device of another brand with the aid of an adapter? Not that I would go for another brand per sé, TomTom has never let me down before, but I'd like to keep my options open :-)
Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!

Thank you for your quick reply.
That's useful information. But then I hope there is another plug that fits this socket/cradle/dock. Is the micro USB still located underneith the device, facing downwards?
I can't seem to find anything that looks even remotely like what I need in the products section of this website.

Well, I guess I can take the plug with me to the store and let the salesperson find the right device for me. At least in that case, if it wouldn't fit, I can return it because it would be their mistake.
I could also call/mail my car dealer to check if they have a solution for me.
Thank you for your help! I will report back in either case :-)
