Good, solid mount, easy to use


Bought this for a long vacation trip where I expected to be taking my GPS out of view frequently and didn't want to mess with a suction mount. This mount made it easy to slip the GPS off the dashboard when leaving the car, and it stayed in place...

Solid mount, stayed in place. Folds up compactly, less bulky than beanbag types

Sticky feeling back seems like it might collect debris

Great to use if you rent cars a lot


I bought a new Garmin with 7" screen and it barely fits in this holder. It is a solid heavier base so it will not slip when you make turns or take corners. It works with any car I rent, and I rent different cars weekly. Easy removal of your unit from...

portable mount that works on my dash without falling over

Great Garmin mountain!


I bought this mount for my patrol vehicle. I was skeptical about how well this would hold up to police driving. I was sure this mount would fly off the dash. I was wrong! Not only does it hold up well, it gave me valuable window space. This is added...
