I second Ram Mounts (Ram Mounts - Mobile Mounting Solutions). You can buy the parts individually and setup a mount that works for you. You can get the parts through Amazon.com too.

The Steelie Car Mount Kit is working great for us and have it for all our equipment (phones, GPS, tablets and CB) and vehicles (truck and van): https://www.niteize.com/product/Stee...-Mount-Kit.asp. Did choose to buy the items through e-Bay though.

I use the one that plugs into the 12v outlet/cigarette lighter socket. Works well for us. You can see it here on Amazon.


You can also get a holder that sites in a cup holder or one that mounts in the CD player. I was looked at every type of holder for my 7" GPS before I found the 12v outlet one.

When reviewing options for my new Garmin, I read many comments about the marks left on the window when GPS was removed, that it was a clear signal to thieves to break in for the GPS. The friction mount is like a bean sack and is quickly picked up, stowed under the seat, GPS itself goes in my purse if I leave the car.
Some folks were complaining about suction type mounts on dash actually reacting with the dash finish, leaving permanent stain.

ProClip holders, check their web and
find out, no vibrations, no drilling, only clip it and very, very quality products .....:-)

I use those also. Got several of them in different vehicles.

I'm late to the party, but Ram Mounts are the best product on the market. Prices are pretty reasonable, it's all made in USA and engineered by smart people. The company I work for cooperates with them on law enforcement and military applications.

It's not worth cheaping out on this stuff (not saying you are, just an observation). These units are heavy enough to do real damage in an accident - you don't want them to become airborne (ever).

Get a Ram mount - they have every conceivable design you could think of. I really like the ones that use the seat brackets to mount a vertical pole. It's overkill, but you can remove them easily when they aren't needed. Sturdy, safe and adjustable. Suction cups don't last all that long before they deform in the heat.
