Throwing away perfectly usable stuff is wastage of resources..... even if you have the money to throw the resources on Earth is limited. Save today for our future Generations and return to them what we inherit in its original conditions... Cheers!

As mentioned several times in this thread, the hassle free solution to this predicament is to use dashboard mount. No matter how good the suction mount is, it is bound to fall off. It can be awkward if this happen while you are driving as it will slide across the dash to one side. I switched to dashboard mount ages ago after this happened a couple of times to me.

I agree that the dashboard mounts are great stuff. Just that you need extra storage space for it. Not many cars have compartments geared to such 'big size' object. I like to build a customize stand that will be mounted permanently... only down side is that everyone will know of a GPS in my car.... not a good thing! Maybe hide it with a Golf club cover.... :mrgreen:
