Vent Clips Work for Me!
on 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.
