I love the friction-mount design - it's lighter than Garmin's bean-bag design, so it's easier to pack for a trip. It's also way easier than setting up the suction-cup windshield mount (which some states don't permit). I have used it for about a year on all kinds of terrain - bumpy, unpaved roads, city and highway driving and on sharp corners and it has always stayed securely on the dash. I like how I can mould it to fit the shape of the dash to give it a secure grip. When I get to my destination, it's easy to take it off the dash and put away out of sight. I have to remember to store it in a plastic bag when it's not in use so that the sticky base does not pick up dust and dirt from the car's interior.

We purchased our Garmin Friction Mount through Amazon.ca. It arrived in two days - well ahead of schedule. We bought the friction mount because we were concerned about theft issues if we used the suction cup which could leave a tell-tale circle on the windshield and also because we hoped it would provide stability for our Nuvi 1450LMT that we heard the suction cup mount wouldn't be able to provide.

It's safe to say that after a tour through Massachusetts we are extremely happy with our mount. We own a 2012 Ford Focus HB and it fits perfectly on our dash. In fact, we are able to mold the mount to match the shape of the dash in a great spot for unobtrusive viewing. The mount held in place regardless of braking or turning. It didn't even budge on sharp corners! When we arrive at our destination, we simply remove the gps and toss the mount in the glove box.

I am surprised that a previous reviewer stated that this mount is big in volume (and so the first thing I took note of when I opened the box was its size and I was pleased with the mount's dimensions). In any case, take note of the mount's specs as posted on Amazon or on the Garmin website to see if it's suited for your vehicle.

For the best review of this product, I suggest you go to amazon.com's Garmin Friction Mount page and check out the review by Timothy B. Riley. It's outstanding and includes a comparison video.

For us, this was money well spent.

This is an unbelievable product. Excellent, I'm very impressed by its quality & functioality. I've Garmin Nuvi 5" GPS, I was tired of windshiled mount which was falling off couple of time during a trip.

It's size is so good, light weight and doesn't move even on sharp turns.

I saw another review that said it wasn't suitable for his Infiniti model. I can't speak for all makes and models or all users, but for me it works great. It has a nice-looking solid silicone base with a "tacky" underside. This allows it to conveniently sit on the dashboard surface by friction alone (hence the name) without the need for permanent adhesives or fasteners (screws). I think it's brilliant. It's reasonably priced, too. Great job on this one, Garmin.

I picked this up because I was tired of the suction cup mount. It's a great idea in theory, but unfortunately, the "non-slip" surface on the bottom, is actually really sticky. After using it on a couple of hot days this past summer, it has discoloured the dash, and unfortunately I can't remove it.

Works as promised. Doesn't slide around on the dash at all. It folds flat for travel. It does leave a shiny spot on the dash, but that wipes off easily. Much easier to use than a windshield mount.

I had difficulty reaching the window mount that came with the Garmin. The Friction Mount fits nicely on my dash and it holds the device securely. And I have had no problem with it staying on my dash. I like it.

This mount fits perfectly on the dash of my 2013 Subaru Outback. I would highly recommend it. However, potential purchasers should be aware of some confusion (at least to me) between this item 010-11280-02 (11.2 x 3.6 x 16.5 cm ; 27 g) and the portable friction mount item 010-11280-00 (4.5 x 19 x 28.2 cm ; 336 g which seems huge) with the latter having a length of about 11" vs. 6.5". There is also a reported difference in weight between the two items and so be careful with what you order. A Q&A somewhere said that the real difference between the two product numbers ending in 00 or 02 is that one comes in frustration free packaging while the other doesn't - mine was in a nice little cardboard box which was very easy to open. However, checking around a bit seems to confirm the size so the packaging may or may not not be a factor in the product numbers. A guess on my part is that the one I have weighs more than 27g and seems well designed to stay in place. A good design and a good product.
