4" Mounting Disk for GPS Needed

I am needing to purchase a self adhesive mounting disc that is close to 4" or 100mm. This is for my rand mcnally 7720 gps. The smaller ones do not hold it properly. I have sent in asking rand mcnally where i can get one but no responce from them at all. Anyone have a place to get these.
Thanks and have a great day.

Lowes or HD for an electrical cover plate, various materials and colors. Or try eBay for aluminum disks. I bought a couple of 6" round disks when u moved my Hadleys.

If you are intending to put it on the dash, I've had very good luck with the bean-bag style mounts. I even use them in aircraft without issue.

Amazon is your friend. Convert 4" to mm and you'll find a good selection on Amazon.

In addition to the above, we recently bought this mount from Amazon. They also have the stickum discs in a 2 or 5 pk.

I gave up on the suction cup mounts- they fail sooner or later; usually when you're going around a corner in busy traffic and really need GPS assistance.

I bought two strips of adhesive backed Velcro- one loop, one hook .

one goes on back of GPS unit (mine works better on the top edge);
one on the instrument panel (mine on the top under-edge of the instrument panel shroud. Hides the tach, but I don't use that a lot. If yours hides the speedo, then mosts gps's show the speed anyway.

Pop it in and works great and easy to remove and hide the gps when leaving the vehicle.

I got these from Amazon for my RM RVND7710 that kept falling off the dash. Haven't had any more trouble so far!

They come in different diameters!
