Pros: Sleek looking, 1-hand insertion, works with cases
Cons: Takes a day or two to figure out, instructions could be better
I received my iProDock a few weeks ago and so far its been great. My original iPhone cable fits perfect inside the "housing connector" and it is impossible to pull it out or move it once its set. At first I placed the white rubber piece/bushel upside down (better instructions neeed iBOLT!) inside the connector housing and the Lightning Connector would come out when removing the phone but after I changed it its rock solid. There is absolutely no vibration when driving and the Mount has stuck to the windshield even after 2 weeks of winter cold here in NY with morning temperatures in the 20s. I use an Otterbox Commuter but I had to cut the "flap" to make it work. Great to have the USB cord permanently connected to my car-stereo for sound and charging, it takes literally one movement to insert the phone. The only drawback is that the balljoint goes backwards when inserting the phone in an angle so I figured out it has to be almost perfectly vertical when inserting and removing and then its fine. Overall a 4.5 product but I give it a 5 since its the only real car-dock Ive come across. Overall really good quality.
Good dock but not very usable one-handed

Pros: Keeps lightning cable in dock at all times and out of your way
Cons: It doesnt hold onto the lightning cable hard enough to detach it from the phone when removing from the dock
I really like this dock because it keeps my lightning cable in order while Im not using it and even makes docking my phone and charging it at the same time into a single action whereas it used to take two separate ones. The only thing I dont like about the car dock is that it is not as usable one-handedly as I had hoped. The clamp that keeps your phone in place is quite stiff (for good reason obviously) and usually requires me to hold the dock while I put my phone into it so that it doesnt tilt up (even with the back fastened as tight as it goes). I also experience problems removing my phone one-handed because the dock does not hold onto the lightning cable tight enough to remove it from the phone. So I usually hold the dock and cable with one hand and pull the phone out with the other. I am thinking about super-glueing the cable to the inside of the dock and I believe/hope that will solve this problem because it truly is irritating. After I do that, I think I will appreciate this dock a whole lot more.
OK for the $

Cons: Cannot use a rugged case
Very hard to use a rugged case such as the Griffin Survivor. You cannot plug in the audio as stated on the website and that limits its usefulness. Instructions are not clear.
