I had made a post about the ProClip system a while back. I was finally ready last week to purchase a ProClip mount (now that I had my back ordered TomTom GPS from Amazon). I ordered the two required parts, one part custom made for the TomTom One v3 and one part custom made for the SAAB 9-5 with wood grain dash. The package arrived today.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that the ProClip is designed and produced in Sweden. I knew I was in good hands from that point forward.
The mounts are made out of what I would guess to be some sort of polymer. It reminds me of the grip from a Glock handgun.
I used four of the included self-tapping screws to put the two parts together.
Installation only took a minute and the only tool needed was a "gap opener" wedge included in the package.
The ProClip snaps into place and really holds tight. I put my hand around it and pulled like I was opening a door; the thing did not move one bit.
Once the mount was in place, I added my TomTom One.
ProClip has four custom mounting locations for the SAAB 9-5: upper left dash, upper right dash, under the cup holder (like the phone mount on some 9-5s), and on the console by the gear selector. The total cost of the system with shipping was under $70. I didn't think that was too shabby for a totally custom mount. It's a vast improvement over the universal suction cup mount that the TomTom came with. The instructions even included photos of the 9-5 dash. ProClip has mounts for all sorts of SAABs and all sorts of electronic devices. I'll stop here because I'm already sounding too much like a commercial.
