Here's the short tutorial on how to modify a Brodit/Proclips active car mount to work with an HTC y-cable. This allows you to slide your Kaiser into the device holder, and have audio out capabilities while charging.

First, you need to use a knife to separate the top plate from the charging plug. Slide your knife gently between both sides to completely separate it. If you look carefully there is a thin line between the top plate and the bottom mount.

Once you've removed the top plate, you'll see the usb charging cable:

Remove it and get the y-cable ready to install. You need to remove the rubber casing around the end of the y-cable in order for it to fit correctly:

Once installed in the holder, it should look like this:

Where did you get you audio/charging y cable from and also is it a mini usb connection or a 3.5mm connection for the audio...?

Cheers,

This was the y-cable that was included with my TyTN (8525). It's a standard HTC part. The audio connection on this adapter is mini usb, but they also have one with a 3.5mm connection.
