I lucked out when I bought my Garmin Niv 260 3.5.. Both cars, I didn't
need to make anything to hold the GPS. The Buick I can stand it up (it
leans back) in the depression infront of the Radic/HACV controls. On the
Bonneville I set it on top of the ashtray door and push it slightly
closed and the lower knob on the radio wedges against the top of the
My suction cup mount was defective out of the box. It would come undone
off any flat smooth surface after 2 minutes. Completely useless.
I have an old garage door opener sunvisor clip I make rig up on a small
piece of wood or aluminum with velcro attached. Then I can try hanging
it from the passengerside sunvisor.
We are men, we have hands... and we can "Build" things...
I built red oak mini consoles for both cars and some day I may make up
some type of bracket that will fasten to the console in someway. I don't
like driving and having everyone (I pass) see that I have a GPS on the
dash. Prefer to keep the stuff low and out of sight.
