This is a 1998 GMC Sierra K1500 extended cab. It is very good. Just as easy as reaching the radio or the a/c controls. Watch out though, they are slow to ship. When I first ordered it, it was backordered and it took them 3 weeks to ship the vehicle mount, then it broke 2 seconds after I tried to install...
I sent it back and it took them another 3 weeks to backorder and send me another. The second one went right on, and didn't break, and has been clipped securely to my dash for about 2 months now.
The total cost for the charging cradle & the vehicle mount was a little over $100 US. An added bonus is that I've taken to leaving my Motorola H700 on the cradle to charge when I'm not in the truck. It just slides right in. No more leaving it dangle at the end of a car charger with the cord slung over the gearshift.
When I first got it I had problems sliding the phone in, and it would just miss the USB connector by just a little, and stop at the USB connector. Now that I've gotten used to it, the phone slides right in, and I rarely have problems.
I've been very pleased with the exception of how long it takes them to ship. If you have any more questions just let me know...
