I stick mine to the bottom right of the windscreen. That was its easy to see but doesn't distract from my view of the road.

Re: Where do you mount you SAT-NAV??

i used to suction mine to window bottom right but i found it obsured my view sometimes so moved it to the middle of windscreen but i dont like it there either. Im thinking of putting it on my door window next but i dont think thatd be a good idea. Id like to stick it to the dash board somehow but my brain wont think of a way to do that. might try velcro patches!

Re: Where do you mount you SAT-NAV??

Think I will go with just to the left of the dash same as Carl's ma lol

Seems to be the best place for me.

Rose mine came with a sticky pad that you stick onto the dash and then the suction cup goes onto the disc you just stick on the dash

Re: Where do you mount you SAT-NAV??

Does anyone find that with the rake of the windscreen...if you mount it on the screen itself, you have to lean right forward to actually use it...seems like it is miles away!

I got the TomTom 530, and its brilliant!... The downloadable stuff is good, I got a Grande Punto in black as my cursor, my start-up screen is the Fiat logo, so its all good!.... the only problem is the actual holder, the arm is small so not a real great of place you can put it. I put mine on the bottom right of the windscreen, but sometimes can get in your way. Eventually i'll find a way of mounting it on the dashboard well out of the way of the windscreen. But the actual TomTom its self....

Re: Where do you mount you SAT-NAV??

Bottom of my windscreen to the left of my steering wheel. Doesnt make me take my eyes off the road there and is easy to keep in peripheral vision if needed, and doesnt obscure any road.
