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.
Fast-forward and I found this. The Garmin portable friction mount is a great product IF you have a flat dashboard that you can place this on. If you do not, such as some older Jeep Liberty's, this product is worthless and won't be able to be used. I found this out the hard way when I took it out of my car and attempted to use it in my girlfriends Jeep. Luckily we had the windshield mount to fall back on.
The mount is solid and relatively heavy as well. This product stays firmly in place even when taking corners or stopping quickly. The center that the mount itself links too has a solid metal base, but is slightly raised on my product meaning that I do not have to worry about my dashboard getting scratched.
The product itself is a bit larger than I expected, and does have to sit slightly more forward than I would prefer in my car (sloped coupe windshield) but it does not hang off the front either.
Overall this is a quality product that works as expected. Slightly larger than I had expected but having put it through it's paces in terms of trying to get it to move, I can say that the extra size and surface area probably is what is keeping it firmly planted to my dashboard. I'd highly recommend this, but make sure your dashboard can accommodate the size of this product.
It now sits on the dash of my Chevy Trailblazer and hasn't budged in over 800+ miles. Now while I'm very pleased with this product, it may not work with every vehicle. It's great if you have a flat surface to place it on or even one with a bit of a slope. It also doesn't seem to matter whether the dash is rough or smooth - it stays put either way. The last nice thing about the Garmin Portable Friction Mount is that it's not permanent. If I want I can transfer it to another vehicle quickly and easily.
Overall I think the sheer number of positive reviews make this item a easy purchase, at least it was for me.
