Sports car. maybe. Truck pulling camper, none. And if you need to move it, you just slide it where you want.

Sorry Bob, I misread your post, I thought you were asking about it sliding. I guess I need to clean my glasses.

I went to CW they sell a item you put on your dash it has a 6x6 sticky mat and a cup the GPS sits in. I threw the cup away and the mat works great so great went back and bought another one for my tire monitoring system.

x2 on the iOttie suction cup. It works great on textured dashboards. The clamp that holds the phone has limited width if you have a larger phone, though, so I've actually modified it to continue to use the suction cup to hold my backup camera screen, but have the screen double stick taped to the holder. I've also used the bean-bags, but it's a bit annoying. I've started using a vent mount similar to this that I picked up for $5 at Walgreens:

The nice thing about that is the cold air from the air conditioner is blowing straight on the phone that helps prevent it from overheating when used as a GPS and the screen is on for hours at a time on hot days.

Bought this mount at Best Buy. Easy to move from one vehicle to another.

X3 on the friction mount. On Amazon for Garmin. My GPS is 7 inches, easily seen from this mount on dash, easily adjustible, no glare

One problem that I see with using top of dash is glare from sun and, when leaving tv to go eat or whatever, is that it can been seen by anyone walking by. I like my windows so I mounted mine just below top edge of dash on gauge surround. There is a glare shade for Garmins and a back-up camera also...no 2nd screen.
