    I personally found the mount for the 7" chinky truck sat NAV a little poor and requires constant removal to close the cab blinds.
    MY solution was to marry a Garmin mount to the Chinese one.
    Just cut off the top and bottom so it is flat then drill and screw as pictured (these are all I had when the idea struck).

    This now fits my cd mount with options

    Nice cable routing

    You have to stick it to something which is the opposite of my modification

    Edit of opening post

    I personally found the mount for the 7" chinky truck sat NAV a little poor and requires constant removal to close the cab blinds.
    MY solution was to marry a Garmin mount to the Chinese one.
    Just cut off the top and bottom so it is flat then drill and screw as pictured (these are all I had when the idea struck).

    Off centre mount gives a better angle to driver.

    I have now swapped my ICE unit to the lower slot which now makes the sat nav out of sight from the outside.

    I've been thinking about better ways to mount my Navi truck nav, too, and this thread has opened up loads of possibilities already. Many thanks.

    I really admire all the stuff you've done to your MH. Imaginative, innovative and impeccably executed. (y)

    Nicely done (now you've sorted the screws :)). What is the device below it?
