They may cost a little more than others, but well worth it.
I just read the install instructions for that and I see it uses an adhesive tape. So, is it a one time install and can't be removed? How does the adhesive hold up? Still like it?

I just wedge my iPhone right in front of the center screen (non MFT 4inch screen) and I can reach it, GPS is flawless, an it pops right out, and there zero to install. Ford made it that way so you can just clip your Garmin or phone right into the dash. One of the cooles things about the car

Proclips are overpriced, the full setup runs over $60.

Expensive but worth the money, wont work great for a gps, but cant get more perfect for your phone.

The mount looks like ford included it from the factory

I use one of the windshield suction cup jobs with the long bendable snake. I put it high up on the windshield in front of the rear view mirror, then I bend it right up so it sits just below the left side of the mirror so it's at eye level. That way when I'm using nav, my eyes only move a few inches to the phone, and I also plug it directly into the glove box port so I can listen to music or take calls over the car's speakers. No one really I talk t seems to really notice call quality problems. I have the S model sedan in black and manual trans so I don't have the ford sinc (cheaper price is more important than higher end options). This method with the phone right under the rearview mirror is the best place I've found so far after using several other mounts or locations I wasn't happy with. Man, for some season I'm really having trouble posting from my phone! Excuse the bad typing!
