This vent mount is very useful, provided that your car has a suitable vent- this means the vent must be located suitably to accommodate the GPS unit, and the slats on the vent must be horizontal.
I found the mount was very easy to use with my Nuvi 760. It was easy to attach to and detach from the vent. Also, it was straightforward to attach the GPS unit. There is an adjustable leg on the mount which helps to secure the mount to the vent in a stable fashion.
Some people may prefer this mount to the windshield suction cup mount.
Also, this mount is useful in places where windshield mounts are not permitted (e.g. California).
I used the mount with various rental cars while touring- it was equally successful in each car (the cars I used it in were 2008 Chrysler Sebring, 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer, 2008 Jeep Liberty and 2007 Toyota Solara).
It was sufficiently stable to allow for the GPS unit to be used while attached to the vent.

Still gonna give it 4 stars, almost next to impossible to make something that works for every vehicle known to man. They are well built.
My next attempted solution was to try the weighted beanbag solution (cheapest price at Walmart), but as an accomplished urban driver who likes to make yellow lights (and the common deceleration into corners thereafter), I got tired of trying to catch the whole package as it was sliding to it's doom!.
The final solution that works well, and is the simplest, is to mount the adheasive disk that came with my Garmin (and available to purchase as an accessory here at Amazon) onto my dash. My GPS and it's OEM suction cup mount hasn't moved from it's spot since I've mounted it (make sure and follow cleaning and temperature instructions!). As an additional benifit, I was able to mount the GPS in a more ideal location nearer me and my display console than the bean-bag or air-vent would have allowed. If I use my GPS in someone else's car, then I just use the beanbag and assume the responsibility as the navigator to catch the thing when it slides!
Go with the adhesive disk and OEM suction cup solution... you won't be disappointed.

The two clips are adjustable, they move around when trying to put the GPS unit on the vent.
They don't stay on when you hit the first good bump.
