Keep your nüvi in place with this portable friction mount. It'll keep everything in plain sight when you need it and out of the way when you don't.
Place the mount on any stable surface, and adjust the position of your GPS to your liking. The friction mount weighs enough to keep your device put on the dash, even when sudden maneuvers are necessary. It's ideal for states in which the use of windshield suction mounts is illegal.
In addition to its convenience, you can quickly place your GPS out of sight, and without leaving any residue on the windshield, both handy for any potential prying eyes.

Another advantage of this is that once the mounting bar is in place, you can either lock it in place (so you would have to move the whole thing around to change the angle) or leave it unlocked and it will turn 360 degrees horizontally as needed. The mounting bar doesn't turn without assistance so I will probably never lock it.
I have one of those dashboard compartments so if it is particularly sunny or I am on a bumpy road, I can place it in there to help shade it and keep it in place.
Only downside to the device is that it has a rather large footprint, but not prohibitively large. I like the fact that I can easily use this in both of our family vehicles depending on where we need the GPS.
UPDATE: Now that I have used this mount regularly since May, I have to say this is the best mounting solution I've found for a GPS or any other device for my car. It hasn't slid out of place once!! Given the rise in GPS units being stolen from cars, this mount allows you to easily stash your GPS Unit and mount out of sight and then put it back into position with ease.
2009 Update: Still using this in my Prius and my wife has one too. It's held up quite well. It IS a bit bulky to store out of the way when not in use, but still a good solution. I usually remove my GPS from the mount (a simple process) and then place the mount as far under the seat as it will go. Not perfect, but the best solution I've found to date.
The very good feature is that the arm connected to the GPS can be easily detached with a single click. This is perfect for removing and putting back the GPS when you drive etc. This is a great accessory and I will definitely use it every day. It also helps me to have a better vision of the GPS Nuvi 5" when I am driving. In fact, having the GPS on the windshield makes the vision more difficult and less pleasant than having it on the dashboard.
Now I can go anywhere with my Jarvis and my batmobile (definitely older and uglier than the real batmobile).
(I'm completely confused that I purchased the "Frustration Free Packaging" vs. the regular packaging. I'm an AVP with the first but not the second and I have no clue what was particularly so much less frustrating about the packaging. The cost is the same. I hope everyone who got the "Frustration Packaging" didn't really have that much.)
Edit: There turns out to be a permutation when mounting the DriveAssist that I (and others!) didn't try, demonstrated in a Garmin support video. Clip catch is mounted pointing UP on the DriveAssist.
I'll also be trying another commenter's suggestion to coat the bottom with some RTV silicone: could be helpful.
