Install phone in 2004 SVTF

I don't need much in a car, but having my phone work in one is pretty much a necessity these days. I've managed this in my 1980's Escorts and the 2001 Ranger and now need to figure out the SVT.

I thought since I did the Ranger 2 years ago, that info would translate to the SVT but it's not. Apparently the kit I used in the Ranger doesn't work with the in dash changer.

It looks like they have a bluetooth option that will work with the stalk. This is fairly important as the stock deck has the volume button issue (and CDs skip so it's pretty much driving me nuts).

Has anyone found another option to either BT or hardwire an iPhone in? I'd prefer not to install a new deck unless it's fairly cheap and working with the stalk is a huge plus.

Also holders.... I did Panavise for the Ranger and I don't think there is much else out there. Not a fan of things on the windshield, drilling holes in the dash or hanging phones off vents. I did see a video of a guy that modified his coin tray. I seem to have an ash tray but can probably replace it if need be.

Toss some ideas out - thanks!

Does it work with the control stalk? Not a deal breaker but I like it a lot.

If by control stalk you mean the volume on the steering wheel, then yes, ive heard of adapters to make it work with aftermarket market head units. I know they make one for mine but I've never bothered

Off the left side of the wheel, yes. I found a BT setup that claims it will work with that.
