I have the non-skid sand bag type mount that lives in the center console until I need it. Then, I place it on the center dash and plug the power cord into the front accessory port.How did those of you who don't have the Nav option, but have a GPS - mount your GPS? I have a couple ideas for mounting my Garmin, but someone else may have a better idea.
that's another good spot, P, but my Sirius Sportster is thereGood idea C. For some reason I tend to put it on the left hand side right above the registration stickers. Idk why it just works for me. Maybe because I don't use my Garmin that much lol.
You should be able to do better down there than we can up here, Pedro.LOL... Im going to look into that garmin cause I tried updating mines and they want 130 bucks
I assume you are using the adhesive disk with the suction mount. I had one of these disks come loose on a very hot day, but it was on the top of the dash (not the CT) - how is the adhesive holding up in your installation?Found a great spot for me on the long flat area atop the dash controls and off to the right of the display. Doesn't interfere with any of the display, and is almost at eye level slightly to right of the rear view.
Here's the only pic I have (pardon the fingerprints) but I can take more if you wish showing the actual mounting of the cradle and routing of the cable.
I now have a Garmin 1490LMT (Lifetime Map updates + Traffic) which has a fairly large screen.
Originally I had a 1490T (Traffic) and had issues with it and had to return. The 1490LMT was $30 more that the 'T' but apparantly has fewer issues.
I like my Garmin a lot. For $270CAD it's a pretty good deal.
Holding up very well. The suction works well provided the surfaces are perfectly clean, and the disc stays put if you clean the mating surfaces with alcohol first. Mine hasn't come loose at all in the 3 months I've had it on there.I assume you are using the adhesive disk with the suction mount.
