As many here attest, this is the unit that should have been supplied with the Garmin GPS.

I've tried various types of mounts: the vent mount and the beanbag mount. The vent clips had a tenacious attachment to the vent fins. Even the smallest beanbag mount was cumbersome.

This gooseneck unit is small enough to take with me or stuff into the glove compartment when not in use. It comes with the gooseneck mount, a 3" mounting disk, and one alcohol prep pad.

From the photo, I thought this was going to be "flexible" as in the wimpy sort of flexible on my gooseneck desk lamps. When I tried to flex it, it felt practically unbendable. I thought Arkon made a mistake and put a normal straight steel rod inside.

Then I read the directions. You have to use both hands to bend the inner rod in the tube. After you mount this to the windshield, you cannot rebend the gooseneck easily with one hand. And that's a good thing because the rigidity keeps it from bouncing. You can make horizontal adjustments by loosening the nut. The suction cup has plenty of suction at 2-3/4" in diameter, compared to the Garmin's 2-1/4".

Now I can actually reach the GPS screen, and it's at proper eye level. Excellent little device.

The suction cup on this item is great. Never had an issue with it falling off or anything.

As for the "adjustable" gooseneck shaft, it broke a few months after using it. I used it daily and had to adjust it almost daily as I am in a different truck every night for work. The aluminum gooseneck shaft is stiff and where it attaches to the base is plastic. The plastic piece broke after a couple weeks and I thought I would just deal with it. Well the other day the goose's neck broke off. Now completely useless.

If you are going to have this item in one vehicle and leave it in the same position, it's worth the price. If you need something with some versatility I would suggest getting the shorty garmin mount. I guess I will have to get that one.

When I orderd the flexible arm extender (ARKON GN042 Garmin Nuvi 8.5-Inch Windshield Suction Gooseneck Mount) I wasn't sure how it was going to work. BEing the arm is 8.5 inches long & then attaching the GPS to it the weight would make it shake. It is very stable with little vibration. It's now easier to reach without stretching all the way tot he window. I installed it in my wifes Honda CRV & was also concerned about the suction. Would it hold to the window or fall off? Again surprised it hold well & has been up for weeks in frigd temperature & hasn't come off once. The only issue I had was it was difficult to bend & I was afraid of forcing it. However, we were was able to bend & shape the mount.
Needless to say I am very pleased with this purchase.

With my older 3.5" Garmin GPS I was happy with a regular windshield mount. Not so with my new 5" nuvi 1490. It blocked too much of my view, no matter where I put it. I ordered a Garmin Friction Mount, which may have worked but simply looked too big and unsightly on my dash. I next ordered a Navitech Vent Mount and decided it would block my vent and probably not be very secure. I next got the Arkon gooseneck and it is perfect for my car ('03 Lexus ES300). It has a very tight grip on the left lower corner of my windshield and holds my 1490 very securely, at as perfect a location as I think possible. The viewing location and access to the touch screen is as good as it gets, and I look forward to using it for a long time.

Very disappointed since it is not a gooseneck mount mentioned in the listing. It just plastic cover imitating gooseneck mount and it has just regular wire inside and if you keep bending, it will soon snap.

This product was one of the best from Amazon :) - I loved it ...

Pros: (1) Very tough / stick to the glass - suction was amazing (2) No chance of GPS falling down even in rough roads (3) You can twist the stick and put whatever direction you want

Cons: Not a chance !! :)

I purchased two of these -- one for my spouse and one for myself. If I had only purchased the one for myself I would have easily given a perfect 5 stars. Once I attached this to the windshield of my 2007 Tahoe it literally hasn't budged. The bottom-right edge of the Nuvi is about 1/8" away from the dash and it has held firm in that position for months now. Amazing.

On the other hand, the one I purchased for my wife seemed to fall from her Toyota Avalon windshield every few weeks. It's odd to me the difference between the two. However, I suspect the issue has more to do with her windshield than this product which is way I gave 4 stars.

I wanted something that would put a Garmin to the right of my steering wheel, and because of the contours of a Miata's dashboard, there are no flat surfaces. I did bend the device almost at a right angle at the base so that I could put it low on the dashboard (so as to hide the mount from where I sit and my perspective as driver). I actually have the bottom corners of my GPS touching the edges of my curved dash, but the long rod holds it in place perfectly. It hasn't come loose from the windshield in over 2 months with the top down. I'm happy with the results.
