Garmin dezl 760 Mount
Of course the 760 is large, thank goodness. That size provides some challenges in mounting the unit.
I don’t like windshield mounts, and much prefer portable “beanbag” style mounts to sit on the dashboard.
1. I want to get the GPS out of sight when I’m not in the rig.
2. I want to easily transfer the 760 between RV and Honda. I thought I’d use a NUVI in the Honda, but the 760 is so good and easy to use that I use it exclusively in both RV and Honda.
Garmin has a bean bag that has always worked well with the smaller NUVI units, but is stressed when dealing with the 760. I have nailed the beanbag mount down in the RV with Velcro, but not in the Honda. This works very well in the RV, but requires a second mount for the Honda. That second Garmin beanbag mount in the Honda requires constant attention to make sure the whole thing doesn’t tip over when accelerating, etc.
Enter the “GPS City Grip Dashboard Friction Base for Suction Cup Mounts.” It is a very large and heavy donut kind of a thing which accepts the standard GPS suction mount. I used one several years ago on smaller automobile GPS units. It was highly advertised then and did all the advertisement claimed.
It’s still in the GPS City catalog for $14.95 plus shipping. I ordered one today and took it for a trial run in the Honda. It performed to perfection. No action of the Honda could cause the GPS to move.
I have not driven the RV with it yet, but have played with it in the parked RV. My RV dashboard is curved in front of the steering wheel. It is possible that the dash curvature could give some problems, but that doesn’t seem likely.
If you want to use your 760 in your auto, I recommend this mount without reservation. I recommend it for the RV with a few reservations about possible curvature of the dash.
At $14.95 I think it is a steal and worth any risk associated with dashboard curvature.
