California Vehicle Code section 26708: Material Obstructing or
Reducing Driver's View
(b) This section does not apply to any of the following:
(12) A portable Global Positioning System (GPS), which may be mounted
in a (1) seven-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield
farthest removed from the driver or in a (2) five-inch square in the
lower corner of the windshield nearest to the driver and outside of an
airbag deployment zone, if the system is used only for door-to-door
navigation while the motor vehicle is being operated.
?Hi, not sure what you mean about where to post. Is this "top posting"
better? Regarding running a wire to the cigarette lighter, what I mean is
the GPS needs to be plugged in to 12v. You could run the power cord behind
the dash to clean things up instead of using the cigarette lighter, but that
takes some skill, at least for me <g>. Regarding attaching the GPS to the
windshield I just mentioned it as a matter of fact and not really as a
reason to avoid portables. Mine came with a flat plastic circle with
double-sided sticky tape which I attached to the dashboard. The GPS suction
cup then attaches to that flat surface. This works fine and I actually like
it better then attaching to the windshield since I can keep using my sun
shade. The only downside is it may leave a mark on the dashboard if/when I
someday remove the whole thing.
