Cellphone hands free kits?

My state is on the verge of passing a law restricting handheld cell phone use. I rarely use my phone in the car except for occasionally using google maps for navigation. I'll need some sort of hands free kit that could hold the phone on the dash so I could see the display for navigation but also be able to talk hands-free for the rare phone call. Obviously my '04 Sable doesn't have the sync option so does anyone have a hands free kit they like or would recommend? If you've got a picture of how you mounted your phone in a gen 4 please share. Thanks!!

Paved roads?????!!!!! You getting fancy on us!?

You can actually get one for your 04 easier than I can in my 05!

Theres a kit so you can add it to your current radio, but I am not able to find it while at work (blocked addresses)

Or you can replace the entire headunit for one that has it already installed.

If your 04 has a 3.5mm port get a Kinivo BTC 450. I've got one in my 2008 Taurus and one in my 2012 Edge. They, by far, are the best ones for Bluetooth voice calls and sound better then most factory systems. I went through a bunch of them before I found the Kinivo. I've been using those little round vent mounted magnetic phone holders for about 6 years and don't think I could live without them. There's just no better way to mount and dismount a cellphone in a vehicle. If ya don't have a 3.5mm port I'd definitely swap the radio out with an aftermarket head unit with built in Bluetooth.

If you don't have an Aux port you can add one in the trunk with a iSimple Aux2Car. Then run the line up front under the carpet and use aux Bluetooth Hands-Free Kit.

Bluetooth Car Kit I'm using:

Head unit with Bluetooth built in:

And I use this mount with built in wireless charging, nice if your phone supports it. Makes it so I don't need to plug anything in.
