It actually works brilliantly, it's got a soft underside that grips the dash without marking and stops it sliding around. The lumps on the side are little bean filled cushions to give it some weight. Proven during full ABS application to not budge at all It also allows you to mount the unit closer to you to make touch screen operation safer and removes as easily as just lifting it off the dash.

To be honest, the Nuvi (with Cyclops camera database) has been so good it makes me wonder about ProNav in the next car. Fortunately I think I can convince myself I really need both
Bought one of these and really impressed. It does not budge and sits perfectley on the dash. It only takes seconds to remove to the boot and leaves no marks for thieves to look for. Easy to swap to the other cars as well.

Great tip thanks.

Regards

Chris

Glad to be of service.

Though I did get it to fall off the dash when I had it mounted quite close (so sloping towards me) and really launched hard . Never budged under ABS or even when cornering hard enough to drift a little.
