Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Garmin and Amazon.com have teamed up to offer this item in Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging, a recyclable, easy-to-open alternative to traditional packaging. Products in Frustration-Free Packaging are exactly the same--we've just streamlined the packaging. A Frustration-Free Package comes without wire ties, hard plastic "clamshell" casings, and plastic bindings. It's designed to be opened without the use of a box cutter or knife and will protect your product just as well as traditional packaging. This item ships in its own box, without the need for an additional shipping box. Learn more about Frustration-Free Packaging.

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. The arm attachment connects directly to your GPS device, and once you've adjusted it to your liking, locks into place. Avoid the "wing around the windshield" syndrome that accompanies windshield mounts.

Perfect for locales where window-mounting is prohibited or those who simply prefer a quick way to mount/unmount their nüvi/StreetPilot device.

Excellent product for those who don't want to stick suction cups to their window. Those things fall off in high heat, anyway.

My dash is probably not the best for this product since it is slanted and slippery. Yet the mount stays on! Please note that it does shift a little over long periods of time, but it has never fallen off.

The best thing about it is you can now easily reach the screen keys to type in your destination.

4.0 out of 5 stars Garmin Portable Friction Mount Aug. 6 2012

This appears to do what it claims. It stays in place on the dash, does not leave telltale signs like the window mount and is easily removed and hidden from view.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sits anywhere July 18 2012

I am very impressed. I bought it because my car dash is rounded and is full of curves and bumps and it very surprisingly sits almost anywhere in the car. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as advertised!!! May 12 2012

We purchased the Garmin Mount for our trips to Arizona and Italy this year - for use with rental cars. We have a built in GPS in our Toyota. The original Garmin suction holder is such a nuisance because it is very difficult to affix to the windshield and then it falls off easily. The Friction Mount is very easy to set up and is very stable. It works like a charm, as per the earlier reviews on Amazon.com. So pleased to have found it. Would definitely recommend to others - and is only approx $20.

I decided not to leave my GPS attached to my windshield due to the possibility of receiving a summons from the police.
The Garmin Friction Mount (beanbag) is an excellent alternative and I am very pleased with my purchase from Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatility Sept. 5 2011
By iverdus
Verified Purchase
Originally purchased a 'doughnut' style friction mount which worked well in my truck with its large dash, but when transfered to my small car I could only use it on the passenger side dashboard - it was too large to sit properly on the drivers side.
This unit essentially has four 'tabs' that bend, which effectively shrinks the diameter of the hole of the doughnut, allowing this friction mount to be placed in most spots of any dashboard configuration.
As long as your dashboard is clean, I found very little movement of the unit, even under hard cornering. The ability to quickly hide the unit under a seat or center console with no window suction mount marks, optimal placement versatility and ease of transfer between vehicles make this unit a winner for me - very pleased with this purchase.

P.S. price is 50% lower than when I looked at this style friction mount last Christmas.

What's not to like. It's an actual Garmin product, of excellent build quality and sits on the dash like it's supposed to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Adresses suction cup problems
Good overall, but find that it's not as "sticky" as I'd like it to be and it will fall off the dash under any significant acceleration.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT IDEA
I like it, no more suction cup holder falling off the windshield, Stays in place on the dash for the most part except on huge pot holes, which I think is understanable
