This is a great mount for those wanting to swap between the dashboard and windshield. It's actually two mount in one! Personally, I think this mount is far superior to the one that comes from Garmin. Let me tell you why.
The mount kit comes with the hardware to either put this on your dashboard or on the windshield. We provide an adhesive mounting plate to lock your receiver in place on the dash. The suction cup allows for positioning your mount anywhere on your windshield. The great part about this mount is that the suction cup actually sticks to the smooth dashboard mounting plate. This allows you to move it to another car using the suction cup option. Removal of the GPS is quick, just lift it up.
There are options on the mount to allow tilt and angle adjustment. So you can swivel 360 degrees as well as pivot up and down. One of the cooler mounts we offer. You can't do any of this with the mount that Garmin provides.
