I didn't know my Garmin GPS had something similar in it, or I wouldn't have purchased this product. But, I found it had a vent clip that my Garmin doesn't have. This allows me to connect not only to dash or windshield, but any vent in the car. I like this, because there is a vent closer to the driver than there is a flat dash area. And I can't put it closer on the windshield, because it would be in my line of vision. That vent mount comes in handy.
I gave it 5 stars, but the vary nature of the manufacture makes it a little bulky. I know that is so it will fit other GPS devices, so I really can't complain. It's made well and has features my Garmin mount doesn't have. While I prefer the Garmin mount because it's smaller (of course that's because it was only made to fit the Garmin), if I didn't have the Garmin mount, this product would be quite satisfactory, especially the vent clip option, which I do use.
By the way, the suction cup works fine. I haven't even taken the protective plastic paper off, yet. I can imagine it would work even better without that. So far, I've only used it on my dash. I haven't used it on my windshield. Maybe that would require me taking that protective plastic sheet off.
I don't know for sure, but it looks like it could also be used for other things, like phones or even iPads. Don't quote me on that, but it is pretty versatile. This is worth the money I paid for it.
