An additional note after a little use:
I made a very slight modification and glued the round piece that attaches to my TomTom to the plate it joins with. This gives the mount even more stability but the full range of motion of the mount is maintained.
I bought this mount so that I could leave it in my car and take the TomTom mount with me when I travel. This mount has a tremendous amount of adjustabilty, and there are no concerns about it coming off the glass.
The cruxt of the issue is the extent of the arm. Maybe the TomTom 540 is just too heavy for it, but it tends to vibrate while drivingbecause it is cantelevered out there so far. It doesn't drop or slowly lower down; in that regard the mount is strong enough. It's just a vibration issue. It's enough to make you car sick if you are trying to read data (street names, time to arrival, etc.)
If you rest the GPS against the dash, or against the A-pillar (side of the windshield), it takes out the vibration. Since it blocks your view to mount any GPS in the middle of the windshield hanging in free space, perhaps this is a non-issue. For me it is an annoyance, but there is a work around.
When it arrived I first ascertained that it would clip to my GPS, which it did with no problems, a nice firm grip too. Not as firm perhaps as the TomTom version but that mount keeps falling off my windshield so all in all, good.
The mount has a swing arm that can be positioned to account for windshield slope and dashboard proximity etc then locked with a knob, and which terminates in a ball-jointed platform into which you snap-fit the ring-adapter for the GPS itself. The ball joint can be tightened or loosened by means of a knob on the back of the platform. This sounds more complex than it actually is.
I used the included alcohol wipe to clean the windshield, dried the windshield with a clean paper towel and stuck the mount to it by pressing it hard against the windshield and operating the lever. That was last night, and the mount is still stuck like a limpet this morning.
I went for a drive using the GPS and it was just about perfect. No vibration, no falling into the footwell after a minute or so.
If it stops being great I'll come back and say so, but as of today this mount is well worth the cost in my opinion.
[EDIT 10/21/15] I just ordered one for my kid, who uses a Garmin GPS, and I already got one for my wife who uses a Tom Tom. These mounts are truly the best way to mount the GPS where it can be seen without taking eyes off the road longer than one would for, say, a mirror or speedo check. I stuck mine on the windshield of my car the day I bought it and it is still hanging tight today. Six stars good.[/EDIT]
