Car Mounts for the Garmin DriveAssist 50LMT

Apparently Garmin is happy with the concept of integrating a dashcam with a GPS because the Garmin DriveAssist 50LMT is the second generation of this type of device.  In 2015, Garmin released the NuviCam line which was the first time they integrated a camera with a GPS.  Our article about the NuviCam has received a lot of hits so I’m guessing it has been doing well for Garmin.  Based upon the naming standard they used, it looks like Garmin is going to be integrating a dashcam option into their main line of GPS models.  It looks to me like Garmin is … Read more…

Replacing the Garmin Nuvi Suction Cup Mount

Garmin has been providing the same basic mount with their Nuvi GPS models since the beginning when they introduced the Garmin Nuvi 350.  Unlike the older StreetPilot series, the Nuvi was much thinner versus the brick sized Streetpilot line and the suction cup mount, pictured within this article, was a bit new to Garmin.  That old Streetpilot was a large heavy unit, so the larger Streetpilots were typically used with a dashboard mount.  In fact, I don’t recall if a suction cup mount was even available.

GPS and Cell Phone Mounts for Trucks and Rigs

Today we will discuss GPS and Cell Phone mounts for trucks and rigs.  Mounting a device in a truck has unique requirements that differ from placing it in a car.  A truck has a much deeper reach to the windshield so a basic suction cup mount will prove to be inconvenient.  Thinking about the suction cup mount furnished with most GPS units, these are a few inches long at best.  It’s difficult for a truck driver to reach forward that far so a suction mount that’s really long is what’s needed.  I have also found that truckers are more receptive to … Read more…
