About the Pro.Fit VSM G3
Looking for an easy way to mount a satellite radio, navigator, iPod®, or other portable device in your vehicle? This Pro.Fit G3 vehicle-specific mount (VSM) is the solution for you. It installs neatly in a convenient spot on your vehicle's dash, so you can reach your portable easily and safely, plus you don't have to alter the interior of your vehicle — good news if you lease your car.
The Pro.Fit G3 uses a ball-joint design that lets you tilt your device in any direction for the optimum viewing angle, and makes changing devices a breeze. The VSM G3 mounting bracket features a slim profile, so it's hardly noticeable when nothing's attached to it. And the G3 mount's molded ball connects to a variety of Pro.Fit device holders, and even attaches directly to the back of a Garmin nüvi navigator.
Adapters for more versatility
In most cases, you'll need a separate device holder to attach your portable to the VSM. The G3 mount comes with two adapters that attach to the molded ball at its tip, so you can pivot your device to the perfect angle. The A Plate adapter attaches to Pro.Fit device holders for items like iPods or plug-and-play satellite radios, while the durable ball-tipped J Stem adapter acts as a 3" extension arm for even more mounting options.
This unique design allows you to use adapters and optional device holders for quick, easy swapping of devices on your dash. For instance, switch from your iPhone® to your portable navigator when you start a trip, then switch back when you get home. The VSM G3 makes it easy — no tools needed. You can expect a great-looking, professional fit every time. Lifetime warranty.

More details on the Pro.Fit VSM G3
Overview: The Pro.Fit International Vehicle Specific Mount (VSM) G3 is designed to attach behind the dash trim for a clean, factory installed look without damage to your vehicle's interior. Please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector for compatibility with your vehicle.
Note: For many applications a VSM will require an additional holder or cradle to complete a mobile electronics installation. Some electronics manufacturers provide their own cradle which usually will attach directly to a VSM.
Included Components: The VSM G3 provides a molded rubber ball allows you to pivot, twist, angle, extend, or remove your electronic device. It can also be used as a stand-alone mount with Garmin nüvi GPS units. The VSM G3 comes with the following components:
- Lock Plate: The Lock Plate has a socket for the G3 ball on one side and a 2" square flat mounting surface on the other side. There are 4 screw holes with spacing between 1-1/8" and 1-1/2" (compatible with the standard AMPS hole pattern).
- J Stem Extension: Made of high-performance resins, the J Stem extension provides a multi-axis, multi-functional joint that also acts as an extension arm (3" in any direction). The J Stem extension has a ball on one end and a ball socket on the other end.
Installation: The VSM G3 attaches to existing hardware that is hidden behind your vehicle dash's trim. Installation will require that your vehicle's trim bezel be removed from the dash in order access this hidden hardware. We recommend using a Dash Trim Removal Tool (042DM4022) or Hook Tool (042DM3022) to remove bezels. A special tool is necessary to protect the vehicle's dash from scratches and punctures that can occur by using a household tool like a screwdriver.
