Mont to the wood. Drill all tho holes you want.. IN THE WOOD.
I bought a small cutting board just for this method. I will also look at some of the new suction cups holders with the magnets to attach to the board. Right now I use my Samsung Note as our GPS, but if the DW upgrades her 7" Samsung Tab to the 10" version I will use it for the GPS.

I have a cradle type holder with that sticky gel stuff mounted to my side window. I can't peel it off! Maybe it's too cold right now, but that thing sticks like a glue trap. I'm not sure how I would get it off of a plastic dash.

but this one has "patented" sticky stuff..

no really.. you are correct it does stick like a glue trap. I did move it several times to get it in just the right spot and it moved pretty easy every time but haven't had it on for an extended period. time will tell...

Mine are sticking very well, but that's what I wanted. I have moved them a few times without struggle, but I haven't had them for long enough to know how they will stick after months.

Saw this and ordered one also. Should have looked a little closer at it and ordered 2 instead of one since it was free shipping if the order was over $35.
That would have given me the second one for $18.83.

Went in and cancelled that order and ordered two.

I have a sat radio, GPS, TPMS & scan gauge to add to the dash. I had a piece of stainless steel left over from a broken ice maker. I measured the length I would need to hold all four items and cut a piece to length. I then bent the stainless lenthwise (about 12 inches) and had about three inches on each side of the bend. I bent it a couple of times to get the face of the gauges to a point it was easiest for me to see from the drivers seat. I painted the stainless a tan color close to the color of the dash. I used heavy duty (industrial?) velcro to attach the stainless to the top of the dash and used velcro to attach the devices to the stainless. I ran the wires on the back side and painted them the same tan color. Worked OK for me but I recently took it off to repaint it and unfortunately it was on the floor when I moved the tractor and (rats) I crushed it (gauges were not on it). Right now I'm using small pieces bent in the same fashion, one for each device. I think I'll do the long piece again.

People still use GPS's?

In all seriousness, I haven't used mine for years now since my smart phone is all but the size of a tablet!

Yeah, if you just need to know where you are going, the new phones work great, but my RM 7720 routes me around restricted tunnels, has real-time construction alerts, posts the speed limit, tracks mileage, finds rest stops and a whole host of things that smart phone GPS apps don't do...yet.

This is only reliable if you purchase an app with offline maps and offline turn-by-turn directions. Garmin and Rand McNally both sell them. It's not difficult at all to escape from cellular service. Satellite is easier to reach in remote areas. I use my iPhone most often, but keep a Garmin in the glovebox.

I bought for 7 bucks a pack of two flexible, rubber like, pads that have a surface that is somewhat stciky and will lay on the dash provided it is not perpendicular. you can lay anything on it and it won't move. I got them the big E in West springhfield but sure you can find them online
