I found a universal mount on amazon.com for $30ish. It has clips that hook into the drivers side inboard vent. I've had it on for 5k miles. Works well with blackberry, delorme, and droidx, but will open wide for larger units. I wouldn't keep it mounted for rough roads though.

I used to stick mine right next to the a-pillar right above the dash...right in the corner.

Now that I use my evo, the rubber case holds it nicely right on top of the steering column, leaning back against the gauges.

Thieves look for the ring a suction cup makes even if you remove the GPS. I bought a bean bag mount that sits on the dashboard and it works very well. Its available on the net.

GPS mount

Mounted my Garmin next to the cup holder using RAM bracket, also installed the on/off switch right above it.

There is a Panavise bracket that may allow the same type of mount:
