    Default Profit Vehicle Specific Cell Phone Mounts...Anyone Installed One?

    I've searched and I'm not having a whole lot of luck. Has anyone installed one of these in their 2007+ Tundra?

    Toyota Mounts for iPods, iPhones, Satellite Radios and GPS

    This is a pic of the vehicle specific mount for our Tundra. They are yet to release a cradle for the Iphone 5, although they have several general use models that can connect to the Tundra VSM (vehicle specific mount).

    Just curious if anyone had done it and has pics...total cost of this mod will be about $75 so it is not cheap. Thanks!

    Sorry, I've never tried the Profit.

    I have this one from ProClip, you can add a ball-style mount to it or it will accept most cradles using the supplied double-sided tape or self-tapping screws - $29.99 and they have 25% off today: Toyota Tundra - ProClip Center Mount

    Can you snap a picture of how it looks? What holder/holster did you use with the ProClip mount for your IPhone 5? Thanks.

    Default Re: Profit Vehicle Specific Cell Phone Mounts...Anyone Installed One?

    How much of the air vent and 4WD/Climate Controls knobs will this mount block? I have the IPhone 5 (which is taller) so I am afraid that it will almost completely block that vent. Also, I have seen questions on the internet about these mounts and potential condensation forming on the back of the phone (since it will be so close to the vent). Any feedback?

    The Pro Fit mount provides a cleaner looking install in my opionion, but is positions the phone on the right side of the radio...meaning you have to lean over to reach it...that was ok in my 4Runner but that is somewhat of a long reach in my Tundra.
