    I have a Garmin Nuvi 350 and I am having the hardest time trying to figure out where to mount this thing :confused:. If anyone has any pics of where your GPS is mounted, I would love to see them. Thanks!!!!!

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    I mount mine on the left side right above the registration stickers.

    I have the same Garmin and that's the ideal location. How did you attach it there??? Do you have a pic of the attachment?

    Exactly. No need for another GPS here.

    I don't think you'll get better than Wormhole's idea.

    I just have a TomTom but the majority of the time it's "mounted" in my glove box. When I do need it I just put it up in the middle (bottom) of the windshield. I generally only travel a couple of times a month and I generally know where I am going. During race season is another story though. I end up in every unknown town in WV, KY, and OH.

    I have a TomTom and it stays stuck on my windshield. I use it for a heads up display. I think the speed is more accurate on the TomTom than my speedometer.

    I have the Magellen Roadmate 360 that came with a windshield suction mount. I positioned it at the lower center of the windshield so that the unit mounting point is just above the middle vents (you can see the mount between the steering wheel)

    I have a Garmin Nuvi, can't recall the model number now. I use one of those bean-bag mounts and simply set it on top of the dash in the middle. I'll move it back and forth between my various vehicles. Works great in the Taco in that location, doesn't slide around like it does on the sloped dash of some other cars/trucks, and is easily portable.

    I use one of the friction mounts and move my Nuvi 360 between vehicles. It works great!

    I have my Garmin Nuvi mounted to the bottom left of my windshield. It works great there, and is out of my way. Tried it in the center, and it obstructed my view.
