Garmin and Amazon.com have teamed up to offer this item in Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging, a recyclable, easy-to-open alternative to traditional packaging. Products in Frustration-Free Packaging are exactly the same--we've just streamlined the packaging. A Frustration-Free Package comes without wire ties, hard plastic "clamshell" casings, and plastic bindings. It's designed to be opened without the use of a box cutter or knife and will protect your product just as well as traditional packaging. This item ships in its own box, without the need for an additional shipping box. Learn more about Frustration-Free Packaging.

Keep your nüvi in place with this portable friction mount. It'll keep everything in plain sight when you need it and out of the way when you don't. The arm attachment connects directly to your GPS device, and once you've adjusted it to your liking, locks into place. Avoid the "wing around the windshield" syndrome that accompanies windshield mounts.

Perfect for locales where window-mounting is prohibited or those who simply prefer a quick way to mount/unmount their nüvi/StreetPilot device.

5My Favorite GPS Mount So Far
By S. Bejster
This thing is great. I rely on the voice assist on my GPS to help me avoid looking down while driving, but sometimes it can't be avoided. I've tried many different GPS mounts with different vehicles over the years and this is by far my favorite. It is very well weighted and stays on the top of my dashboard while driving. A quick glance and I can read the GPS.

Another advantage of this is that once the mounting bar is in place, you can either lock it in place (so you would have to move the whole thing around to change the angle) or leave it unlocked and it will turn 360 degrees horizontally as needed. The mounting bar doesn't turn without assistance so I will probably never lock it.

I have one of those dashboard compartments so if it is particularly sunny or I am on a bumpy road, I can place it in there to help shade it and keep it in place.

5Works perfect, hasn't moved an inch
By Katelyn
I bought this for my garmin gps. I was having issues with the suction cup on my windshield because I couldn't reach the gps. Someone recommend to me I get a dash mount. I was hesitant because my dash is very curvy and I thought there was no way that it would stay in place (especially since I am not the most, lets say, steady driver). Much to my surprise this hasn't moved one inch since I put it in my vehicle. Perfect!

5Great GPS Mount for Flat Dashboard Vehicles
By Kevin
The number one problem that I have had with GPS mounts is that they always fall off the windshield at the most inconvenient times hitting the gear selector and sometimes creating dangerous situations. After having this happen on the highway one day, I decided I wouldn't do this anymore and decided to investigate other options.

Fast-forward and I found this. The Garmin portable friction mount is a great product IF you have a flat dashboard that you can place this on. If you do not, such as some older Jeep Liberty's, this product is worthless and won't be able to be used. I found this out the hard way when I took it out of my car and attempted to use it in my girlfriends Jeep. Luckily we had the windshield mount to fall back on.

The mount is solid and relatively heavy as well. This product stays firmly in place even when taking corners or stopping quickly. The center that the mount itself links too has a solid metal base, but is slightly raised on my product meaning that I do not have to worry about my dashboard getting scratched.

The product itself is a bit larger than I expected, and does have to sit slightly more forward than I would prefer in my car (sloped coupe windshield) but it does not hang off the front either.

Overall this is a quality product that works as expected. Slightly larger than I had expected but having put it through it's paces in terms of trying to get it to move, I can say that the extra size and surface area probably is what is keeping it firmly planted to my dashboard. I'd highly recommend this, but make sure your dashboard can accommodate the size of this product.
