I can't praise the Garmin Magic Mount highly enough. I have no idea how it works but the unit has never moved so much as 1mm from wherever I put it

Do you have the exact name for this mount and what does it look like?:




https://www.scosche.com/magicmount-for-gps-refurbished

There appears to be some confusion out there.

Hi, Squithy! Remember me? Welcome to the Fiat forum.

You really did a tremendous job on those maps. I tested them today in the city and everything works just fine. Thanks again!

It's in the Satellite Navigation section. Here's the link:

https://www.fiatforum.com/satellite-...ap-update.html

If you have any questions, my advice is to contact Squithy at the Alfa Romeo or the XDA forums, because he's not frequenting this one. Here's the links:

Thanks Alanw47

I finally got round to getting the Genuine Garmin Mount. Lookes excellent quality. Have yet to try it in the car but I'm sure it will be fine.

I've used mine frequently for about 2 years now. It's still 100% intact, no wear and tear and holds to the top of the dash like a limpet. You should be well satisfied with it

Well you have answered a question / experience I was wondering/concerned about. That is how long the underside grip material will retain it's grip. I do use those anti-slip type mats and the one I have on my dash does require periodic replacement. Dirt cheap to do so not an issue. Periodic replacement of the Garmin mount would be not acceptable. Am pleased you have essentially ruled this out.

My Otter named "Lotii" will be pleased.
