Top customer reviews
Screen visibility is very slightly blocked on the left side by the steering wheel. If necessary this is easily corrected by tilting your head slightly to the right. This position makes it the most readable GPS we have ever used, including factory units. It is close, viewable and down and away from any sun glare unlike a windshield mount. Of course this optimal position may vary due to the design of various dashboards.
My wife loves it (and even admits it). An inexpensive accessory that greatly improves the GPS.
They broke. Both of them. Within 3 months of each other. And the broke in the same place - the upper arm bent up and no longer clamps the unit. 2 different cars, 2 different garmin units, same broken mount. I'm very disappointed. What is hard for me to understand is that the hints were attached to the vent and they did not move - it's not like they broke from excessive on/off. We installed them and left them. The only stress would be from taking the unit in/out of the mount but I would think Garmin would design for that.
Needless to say, I'm VERY disappointed. I'm going back to the classic Arkon vent mount until something better comes around. They are 1/3 the price and seem to last. And if they break, I can buy 3 replacements and am still out less than one of these. If I were you, I'd pass on this until Garmin improves.
All in all, though, it's better than just propping my Garmin on the center cup holder or front dash.
Update: I upgraded my review to 5 stars. After a few uses, the attaching/detaching, while still fiddly, takes just a few seconds. It holds the Garmin solidly and securely over the roughest roads and while tapping the screen to enter in addresses.
