VINE VOICEon July 28, 2011
I ordered this product specifically for the vent clips. The bars on the vent must be horizontal for the clip to fit, and it fits perfectly on my driver's side center air vent. There is a little brace at the bottom, so the vent doesn't take the full weight of the GPS. The holder that comes with this system holds the GPS securely around the bottom, top and both sides. It is adjustable to accommodate several models, but the plug-in on my 1490LMT doesn't hit the sweet spot, so it has to set off-center. It easily flips the GPS from side-to-side so that it can be seen by either the driver or the passenger, which may or may not be to your advantage. In my car, it eliminates the cord problem between the GPS and the cigarette lighter -- it is a short and direct shot from one to the other. When my GPS was mounted on the dash, I was always trying to find a way to keep the cord contained. I cannot speak for the other mounts in this system, but I highly recommend the air vent clips.

I bought this Garmin Car Mount for a Garmin 1450 model. When placing the GPS into the unit the top clip actually covers the top portion of the GPS, that displays the name of the upcoming street name. You can place unit farther forward so that it isn't covered but as soon as you push screen to select menu, etc unit will slide back. This particular Garmin model doesn't sit well into this particular car mount, even though it is adjustable for larger units it doesn't adjust to such a thin unit. When pushing buttons on GPS unit also shifts back and forth on the side that doesn't have the power cord.

I bought this car mount to mount GPS onto my dashboard, but was unable to stick the mounting disc onto my dash. GPS was actually too top heavy, and disc adhesive wasn't strong enough to hold disc, even without the unit attached. I decided to use car mount attached to windshield instead, since I wanted to be able to use my new GPS right away. It attached itself so tight that it was extremely hard to remove.

All in all I wouldn't recommend this particular car mount for the model GPS. Perhaps it works better on larger GPS units.

The unit is well made and doesn't budge from the dashboard while driving. It allows your co-pilot to easily use the GPS or angle the unit for dual viewing. After use, we find that it fits in a center console or under the front edge of the the passenger seat while still attached to the GPS. With no suction cup or its marks on the windshield, we are not leaving signs encouraging a break-in. We continue to use the product in preference over suction cups or other fastening means.

This is by far the worst product I have ever purchased. If I paid $2 it would have been too much. It was easy to put together and my Garmin fit right in. A good start. It adhered to my dash board securely and I was off. About 5 minutes into the ride it came flying off of my dash board, this happened over and over again. It seems that the weight of the Garmin causes it to pop off. Don't buy this, you will be disappointed.

It's a strange looking piece of machinery that comes with absolutely NO instructions...we're talking zip as in nada. I think I have it figured out but it sure had me puzzled for a couple days. I had no idea how to use the "vent clips) until I read about it in another review. You people would be doing the frustrated public a favor by including even the simplest of instructions. But Nothing?! Aw c'mon.

Would not recommend this mount. When Garmin is in place, the clip actually blocks the view of the top of the screen. You cannot see the street names on the display. The mount is very difficult to adjust when mounted in place. A big disappointment!

This is all plastic, which is to be expected, but it's not sturdy enough to support my Garmin GPS. I have one of those "beanbag" dashboard bases for the GPS. Naturally the whole unit was "front" heavy with the GPS mounted, but the suction cup mechanism worked well. Wish I could say the same of the gears for adjusting the up and down view. The second time I used the mount, it wouldn't hold the GPS in a position where I could see it and when I tried to adjust it, I pushed the buttons so the gears could be adjusted, something snapped and it came apart. First purchase I've made from Amazon that is unsatisfactory.

Happy with the mount, works great on the dash...cause in California it is illegal to mount the GPS on the windshield.
Don't want to give the cops an excuse to pull me over.

as so many sellers are doing now this comes with no packaging. bought two of these to go with gps i am giving as Christmas gifts. not only is there no packaging you can wrap - it just comes wrapped in bubble wrap- there are no instructions and lots of parts. so unless you already know everything there is to know about this mount i would not recommend buying. see if you can find someone who still believes in customer service not getting away with the cheapest way they can to do things.

I have be waiting for this gps and car mount to arrive. when finally it did, i was very disappointed to receive these vent clips broken. sending this whole unit back and paying for the shipping to me is not worth the trouble. i would have liked to have the opportunity to just send the broken clips back, but wasn't allowed that choice.
