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:



Bro Moey, do like what I do, put a baseball-cap over it .. double use, hides your dashboard mount and protects it from the sun-ray ... :thumbsup:

You guys can always try Sifu Bern's RM2 GPS mount. Too lazy to find that picture.

The thinking with Taiwan is, small sovereignty (despite what China thinks or does... :evil: ) nation with policies on outdoing the big "copycat across the water" with every qik turnover possible but stay smart with technology and by then, losses on R&D plus humongous sales "covered" to move onto next wannabe novelty :-'

While mainland China picks up the tab with cloning & mass sales for wannabes :nehneh: trailing behind who generally are satisfied with older items/versions the market is spurned with until the saturation point is reached beyond recovery and then catch up yet again with that tricky Taiwan on their next hat trick.... :lol:

The original Garmin holder that supports my 1490TV (similar to yr 1460 dimensions) is used in my cockpit and stays solidly stuck like the Rock of Gibraltar while I use another (rather than buy another from Garmin accessories) by my PC desktop, from a cheapo (abt €4,50 only) iPhone windscreen support I bought online over here. That too holds firmly well in the widescreen setting. :wink:

I noticed my 1450 suction cup mount keep dropping off from the dashboard disk whenever after I parked my car under the hot sun. :-?

Anyone encounter this before? Any suggestion? Help!

Thanks!


Do like one person I know did. He/She stocked the adhesive disk on the windshield . He/She came to complain to me that it could not be removed. Good night. :zzz: all.
