Our take on the Pro.Fit VSM Mount System by Crutchfield's Zak Billmeier
Looking for an easy way to mount a a satellite radio, iPod®, or other portable electronic device in your vehicle? This Pro.Fit vehicle-specific mount (VSM) is the solution for you. It installs neatly in a convenient spot in your car and puts your device within easy reach, without altering the interior of your vehicle — good news if you lease your car. You can expect a great-looking, professional fit every time.
In most cases, you'll need a separate device holder to attach your portable to the VSM. Each Pro.Fit VSM comes with comprehensive installation instructions. Lifetime warranty.
Note: You must identify your vehicle to order this Pro.Fit mount online. Or, if you prefer, call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to make sure you get the VSM that fits your vehicle exactly.
Very good bracket that fits car perfectly and is very sturdy. It really helped have phone and GPS mounted on dash and out of the way of everything else. Shipping on this was very slow, took over a week to get it. Other than that, a great product.

Pro.Fit VSM Mount System Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Pro.Fit International Vehicle Specific Mount (VSM) is designed to attach behind the dash trim for a clean, factory installed look without damage to your vehicle's interior. This black metal mount provides a mounting surface of approximately 2-5/8" square. 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.
Installation: The VSM 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.

Why did you buy this?
Because it's like the only custom dash mount for most of my rides [ SHAWN Jun 05, 2016 ]

Hi Jeff. Try the Golf VII specific forum over at VWVortex. It's one of the largest automotive forums in the world. There should be somebody there who has already figured out how to what you're trying to do. [ Aaron Aug 23, 2015 ]
Hi Jeff. Unfortunately it doesn't look like we have your vehicle researched yet. However, you may want to check out some Golf forums to see if the dash is similar between this and a previous year. If so we may be able to help with a MasterSheet that would cover the removal of the radio. [ Jeff Aug 07, 2015 ] Staff
The holes on the plate hold items like XM radio very well. Note the location this mounts at is determined by your specific vehicle. My Sienna used a mount low in the center console area on the passenger side. [ GREG Feb 14, 2014 ]
Pro.Gif makes device specific holders that are also sold buy Crutchfield. They also have cradles that adjust to fit various devices such as phones of various sizes. The system works great. If you are not sure which holder you need I encourage you to contact Crutchfield. They are very helpful and as a 25 year customer have NEVER been disappointed with their advice. [ ERIC L Feb 14, 2014 ]
I bought the Pro Fit mount for a 2005 Toyota Camry. It is essentially just a black metal L-shaped bracket with a bunch of holes in it. Very expensive for what it is. The directions tell you to pop out the heater controls from the dashboard and screw the bracket in to that ledge before placing the heater controls back. This bracket will not hold a phone or iPod unless you buy a phone holder and bolt THAT to the Pro Fit mount. [ COLIN Feb 14, 2014 ]
You'd have to buy the I Pod bracket too, unless you wanted to velcro it to the bracket. [ LARRY N Feb 13, 2014 ]
You have to buy a mount that will attach to the bracket and holds your iPod. That bracket is just part of the package you need. [ TREVOR Feb 13, 2014 ]
You buy another piece that mounts to this. Go to the pro.fit website and look around. [ Ray Feb 13, 2014 ]
I bought my first Pro.Fit 20 years ago (back in the days of 3 pound bag phones) to mount the corded handset. When the bag phone was replaced, I mounted a spring loaded, adjustable cradle onto the Pro.Fit mount to hold a smaller phone. I am on my third Pro.Fit now, but still use old style cradles to hold a cell phone (or iPod) securely in the vehicle. It keeps the phone within reach, visible (for caller id, etc), and secure in the vehicle for one handed access to the screen. [ THOMAS F Feb 13, 2014 ]
I originally bought mine to mount an add-on SiriusXM receiver in my '05 Suburban. I don't believe it is intended for an iPod/iPhone mount because it depends on whatever you want to attach to it being able to be mounted to it. Whatever you want to attach to it has to have mounting screws that align to at least two (depending on what it is) of the holes in the mount. Hope this helps... [ THOMAS Feb 13, 2014 ]
This bracket would mount to your dashboard and you would have to check with this or other manufacturers if they have adaptors that wouldfit your ipod or whatever and then mount to the bracket on the side with the 12 slots and holes. The side with the 3 holes mounts to your dashboard after you remove the bezel front. You usually remove 2 existing screws in the dash and add the bracket. [ WALTER A Feb 13, 2014 ]
The bracket mounts behind some dash molding with the car screws. The plate to mount stuff to have several options for lining up a device to it. I mounted a cell phone booster that had a sticky mounting plate and just drilled small holes and used small bolts. [ Jason Feb 13, 2014 ]
Nick, This is Jeff another customer. I have 2 of these one in my truck and 1 in my jeep. There is a cradle you also have to purchase it works Great!! with my i-phone. Don't know about an iPod, Sorry! [ JEFFERY D Feb 13, 2014 ]
I actually had an audio shop install this item for me. It holds my iPhone 5S just fine, but I did require any additional piece. [ MONIQUE Feb 13, 2014 ]
