Sat Nav solution

hi, recently got a garmin streetpilot 2620 and it wont stick to my dashboard, tried the bean bag stand and the adhesive pad but nothing will stick to the curved dash of the clio.

has anyone else had this problem with gps/sat nav or is it just me?

Did you clean the dash board with an alcohol wipe before trying the sticky pad, if not it wont stick due to polish and the like. In my experiance the Garmin sticky pads do work very well. The base of the bean bag mount can be bent to a curve which will help it stay in place other than that you could try a suction mount on to the screen GPS warehouse are very helpful as is the Rammounts

Hope that helps

I used to have murder getting the bracket for my TrafficMaster YQ2 to stay put. The design of the mount basically puts the full weight of the unit into trying to separate the rear of the mount from the dash

Sellotape Outdoor Sticky Fixers worked pretty well, but can be difficult to come by. The normal (non-outdoor) ones are easier to find, but turned out to be next to useless.
Rear view mirror mounting pads were pretty good too, but they're expensive and by no means infallible.
And then I found the perfect mounting tape: "No More Nails On a Roll" Permanent adhesive tape. This stuff really sticks - just be sure to get the permanent (red backing) and not the removable one (a different colour - blue, I think.)

In all cases, you'll probably need to build up several layers of pads to match the contours of the dash - i.e. 2 or 3 layers thick on the outer edges of the mount, dropping down to one layer thick in the centre. You'll use a fair bit of tape, but the result will be a mount that stays put.
