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.
To compare, I also bought a unit which clips onto an air vent. Great idea but didn't work for me. It couldn't be made to clip firmly thus the GPS wiggled with driving motion. This made it difficult to see details. And the air-vent positioning in my car was lower on the dash (i.e. radio-dial level) which meant I had to disengage my eyes fully from the road to see it. Made the friction mount look like a million dollars in comparison.
When I was researching, I noticed some comments about the friction mount moving in an accident. That's true but so will the GPS in whatever little plastic clip device you use. When your air bags deploy, the GPS will be the least of your problems!!
And another point, when you (at a complete stop of course!)need to change or re-program, the whole installation is easy to lift down, change, and set back. No unclipping and clipping etc.
Finally, I have an arm rest container between the front seats. When I park, in 10 seconds the whole kit-and kaboodle (GPS, mount, and cord)are out of sight with no tell-tale clips or mounts left behind.
The reason I gave it 4 stars is because I've noticed a loss of "friction" on the bottom of this mount. It used to grip much better but I guess with me moving this mount between cars..it has caused the "friction" to wear out. I still use it daily. I believe I have had my mount for almost 6+ years now!
Being able to move your GPS mounted on this between cars so conveniently and not having to worry about a suction cup suddenly falling off your windshield is probably the reason why everyone buys this. You will never go back to using a suction cup mount once you've used this.
