GPS mount

I got tired of the suction cup mount not staying in place, and not having a decently convenient location for accessibility.

I tried a base for the suction cup in this location, the base was really sticky but it seems GM plastics are immune to adhesives... even though I had cleaned the area with acetone.

I purchased this RAM mount on a whim, and found a 1" to Garmin ball size (apparently called a "B size") in a geocache - gee, this looks useful!

Yes, I put holes in the top of the dash, but also applied a good & thin double stick foam tape to the bottom of the mount:



Now it'll stay there, and it is in a very convenient location. Better yet, it obscures very little view out of the windscreen:



We tested this on a trip a couple of weeks ago - it works as designed.
Another project complete!

I have a Chevy as well. That looks like a great spot. Thanks for posting the pics.

On my Chevy none of the sticky stuff would stay on the dash top or front for more than a couple of weeks. My suction cups did hold on the windshield.

I used the suction cup for my Dynamax also and had it mounted on the windshield between the seat positions. That was good until the sun's position moved and all I could see was glare. I now have it in essentially the same spot as you do but mounted on the windshield. Also easy to see my speed since the dash illumination is insufficient for me. (Especially in the triple digits)
