Sure - you can add the cradle at any time.

You get a secure holder for your iPod, which allows a video-out signal from the docking connector port on your iPod (preferred over the headphone jack). This signal can be fed to external monitors, or to the VSM if you wish to have the video appear on your NAV screen.
