Great for the price

PORTABLE MOUNT (MUST BE USED

 

would buy another one in the future but would like to see updates more frequent

Showing highligts in different towns

found that some streets were eliminated and also when it brought us home it put us on the wrong side of the street

Great Garmin Holder

 

I highly recommend this Garmin holder -- It stays put on the dash way better than the old suction cup ones that had a sticky pad (which caused permanent damage to a dash when removed).

Really stays put on the dash

Shows dust

Nice mount

 

I bought this for use in place of the window mount. It works perfectly and fits in the corner of the dash so as to not obstruct my view. Does not slide around and is very mobile to remove from dash when not in use.

Very Strudy

Consumer review by:

great holder for Garmin...

 

other holders fall off windshield in heat or cold. Some slide off dash. This one works fine on dash and doesn't slide around. It's easy to remove and "hide".

it stays in place on dash

it's all ok

Product Specifications

Gekos are the smallest and lightest waterproof GPS units on the market - inexpensive, with sleek designs and simple operating systems. With its distinctive canopy-green case, the powerful Geko 201 allows more waypoint and route storage, as well as available PC and external power connectivity, and built-in WAAS capability. In addition, the Geko 201 boasts a user-configurable trip computer, 10,000 trackpoints, a new upcoming-turn feature, as well as PanTrack and TracBack. The Geko 201 also includes four fun, interactive games that transform the great outdoors into a virtual board game. Enjoy a good workout while chasing a virtual lizard in Geko Smak, match symbols in a grid version of Memory Race, navigate to reference points without crossing one's trail in Nibbons, and collect symbols along a path in Virtua Maze.
