    Hello Funsters
    Thank God it's Friday!
    I've treat myself (big bucks) and bought one of these dash board mats in the hope that my SatNav will stick to it.
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Anti-Grip...561?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item4ae5b33b91

    Hope the link works but if not, it's a dash mat costing a massive 99p.

    If you have a SatNav, how do you fix it in place? - on the windscreen sucker or on the dash? - Bracket into dash vent or sucker onto a mat/pad?

    Interested to know.

    I've used windscreen sucker, dash mat and bracket to dash - dependent on dash design. All worked pretty well. My DIY dash bracket was best as I made it so as to swivel as needed.
    Currently using screen sucker - Garmin - stays in place.

    We use a dash mat in the car. It's been great. No slippage problems at all.

    I bought one of those but it would not work as my cd is a front mount of type, so I cliped it under the on dash clip bord holder, job done

    I find that most of my loose change, general money, and expensive items tend to stick to the wife's handbag. It's really strange. One minute I had a fiver in my pocket, then next minute........:(
