The Mobile- Ease is a Ford option blue-tooth 'semi active' voice commanded system.. It has a touch pad (wired but concealed for the most part) that attaches to the dash (peel'n stick') or in a position easily reachable to the driver and a small Mobile-Ease module that tucks under the dash usually over to the side of the glove box (by the passenger pillar post).. The Mobile-Ease module has a short main 'Y' harness that you un-plug the radio/audio units connector and plug in the module connector on the harness in its place.. Then,, plug the other end of the 'Y' connector back into the radio harness connector.. That way,, the module can mute the radio's audio output and play the spoken voice options/choices to you out through the vehicle speakers.. The module also has a smaller harness that runs up to the touch pad.. The mic is wired, but easy to run from the module on up behind the passenger pillar post cover panel and on over to the drivers area up along the headliner edge keeping the mic wire concealed.. Looks just like a car kit cell phone mic.. The Mobile -Ease unit takes it power input/grounds from the radio connector and has no additional connections to make.. On a quality install,, all you should see is the mic head with a short lead wire or none at all if installed up close to a panel/trim ect. and the touch pad with the same wire lead possibilities.. All depends on where you mount the two 'exposed' components, everything else is hidden into the dash.. It does take a reasonable amount of ability to install, and if you've had some experience with dash/trim work installing stereo equipment ect. not a huge challenge.. It's a plug'n play kit..
If memory serves
To place a call, you only have to touch the pad key and the system will say 'Ready' and then a voice menu of commands/choices will be heard.. if you choose 'CALL' and 'lets say' speak HOME, WORK or a specific NAME the call connection will be made for you as long as your address book and voice commands are entered/saved.. Choose DIAL from the voice menu and you only have to speak the number (or a portion of) and a confirmation voice will ask if the number is correct before dialing.. Once you touch the key pad and activate the voice recognition mode you have about 10 seconds 'overall' to make a voice command choice or the system will time out.. There's an emergency button that will automatically dial a call for help or tow, and a privacy button if you need to transfer the call back to your cell, as well as a conference call option.
Any incoming calls will automatically mute the radio and the ring tone will sound.. Touch the pad key and the call is answered and is hands free mode..If I remember correctly all the setup up options are all voice commanded and entered..There's no number pad on the key pad..
The only complaints with this system I find is usually mic clarity for the person listening. In diesel applications it needs to be centered to the vehicle or over and in front of the driver to stay away from the window and the diesel noise.. Actually its a best bet to keep the mic away from the window turbulence anyway.. Mic placement/postion is very important for good transmitting..
This unit may have sold here, but may have another depending on the adapter cable..
