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.

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.

Search Amazon for gps mounts. You'll find plenty of options....

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:eek:) 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.

Good 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.
Up here the new 1490LMT is $270 and is the most up to date unit so far. Down there I'm guessing you'd pay much less and have lifetime updates and traffic.
It's a good unit _ I like it a lot.

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?

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.

If you choose to put the Garmin in the same place as me, and you also want to apply the woodgrain kit to the dash, you'll need to recess that stick on disc about a quarter inch to allow the trim to fit.

Tomtom

I'm using a TOMTOM XL350 w/ the ring mount on the windshield (for now). It was on sale for $99.00 w/ lifetime maps but rang up for $79.00. I liked the NAV in my Acura a little better, but I've only had the TomTom for 4 days, and for $80.00 w/ lifetime maps it's hard to bet that.

Special note: I don't sell them, not spam, just enjoying playing with a new toy in my new CT.

Thanks :D

Thanks CCT, was wondering what something would look like there...

I use my phone for my Navi (ANDROID FTW). My current mount hooks on to the AC vents, but I have seen many universal kits that mount with the plate / suction cup available at Best Buy...

Shopping I go!

I also found a mount that hooks on the AC vents. Its great, easy to put on and take off and it doesnt have any adhesives that might leave a residue or ruin a finish. I think it cost me $20.
