My 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.

Best Solution for NUVI in my Prius and my Ford: Theft Protection As Well!!
My Prius has a rough dashboard and a windshield that slopes very sharply. Thus, the suction cup mounts are not good solutions. Fortunately, the friction mount is a great solution. It works much better than I expected. Very stable, does not slide, and lets me adjust my Nuvi to a variety of different angles. I can place the GPS anywhere on the dash or even on the center console. Also works great when transferred to my wife's Ford.
Only downside to the device is that it has a rather large footprint, but not prohibitively large. I like the fact that I can easily use this in both of our family vehicles depending on where we need the GPS.
UPDATE: Now that I have used this mount regularly since May, I have to say this is the best mounting solution I've found for a GPS or any other device for my car. It hasn't slid out of place once!! Given the rise in GPS units being stolen from cars, this mount allows you to easily stash your GPS Unit and mount out of sight and then put it back into position with ease.
2009 Update: Still using this in my Prius and my wife has one too. It's held up quite well. It IS a bit bulky to store out of the way when not in use, but still a good solution. I usually remove my GPS from the mount (a simple process) and then place the mount as far under the seat as it will go. Not perfect, but the best solution I've found to date.

A must have for Garmin Owners. I regret I didn't buy this before.
This is an excellent product. I purchased the frustration free option and it came in a nice box. The item has the original Garmin label and it is easy enough to see a good quality. It is heavy, but I guess this is part of the friction mount technology. I am looking forward to try it in my car.
The very good feature is that the arm connected to the GPS can be easily detached with a single click. This is perfect for removing and putting back the GPS when you drive etc. This is a great accessory and I will definitely use it every day. It also helps me to have a better vision of the GPS Nuvi 5" when I am driving. In fact, having the GPS on the windshield makes the vision more difficult and less pleasant than having it on the dashboard.
Now I can go anywhere with my Jarvis and my batmobile (definitely older and uglier than the real batmobile).
