    Thanks SRS for sharing your experience. I am not a fan of stuck on the dash stuff so already knew I probably would not use that part of what was sent. I will use the new bracket.

    Perhaps we have opportunity for a new and important thread here. Obstructed view laws! It applies to stickers, tinting and even snow/ice. Depending on where you mount your GPS....you could be subject to an officer's judgment call.

    And you are correct - the retired trooper often reminds me of this all the time.

    Rick, if this is a spam post, let me know and I will take it down. I'm not comfortable soliciting business on the forums, but this bracket may be just the thing for these problems!

    I sell brackets from a company called Panavise. They make a bracket for most cars designed to mount a cell phone on the dash using existing screw holes, avoid the glovebox and airbags, works quite well and won't block your view. I use them for sirius and XM recievers. I stock some, but there are hundreds (custom for each vehicle) that I can get in about 2 days time. They are usually $25.00.

    Click on the vehicle brand at the top of the page to find the model for your vehicle. You can buy accessories to clamp different sized GPSrs into these brackets.

    I've always had good luck with Ram Mounts . . . have one mounted on the ATV. Other folks mount them on kayaks, motorcycles, bikes, sleds, etc.

    As long as there is nothing between you and your GPS, your view is not obstructed is it?

    Sheesh! I was reminded of another of the "10 Rules of Paperless Geocaching" today. Make sure you load your PDA before you depart...

    Yeah I solved that one by getting a new friend to help me and others riding along. A laptot! It's bailed me out a ton of times and was glad I had it along. Well that is...if you use GSAK You just Never know what's going to happen out there.
