    Hi again
    We bought a satnav:
    Garmin nuvi 2599LMT-D...
    in anticipation of our impending motorhome purchase only to find the windscreen attachment will not do (too far away!) and we would prefer a dashboard freestanding thingy. Does anyone know if such a thing exists for this particular sat nav?
    Hope this isn't the first in a list of rashly purchased mishaps!

    We fixed the mount that came with it to the center of the dashboard with the screws it came with. Perfect position.

    I made my own bracket for my SatNav to sit on, it fits nicely in the middle pocket in the dash leaving the space free and has 2 benefits navigator can adjust it as we drive and it is closer to us so no stretching to adjust alter etc. I also put a double USB socket in the pocket saves having cables trailing everywhere.

    I have a Nuvi 2569 for the car and bought a Vent Mount for use with that. Works fine.

    EDIT. I've used various different ways of mounting different sat navs in the van. See notes Here.

    We use an I-Pad with the TomTom app on it. That sits on top of the "defunct" clipboard holder thingy.. in its own stand up doofer.

    Get one of those beanbag/doughnut mounts as mentioned in previous posts. For around a tenner, they are brilliant!!!

    You can just swap the thing between MH and cars AND just move it around the vehicle to suit or if the sun is reflecting on the screen.

    I just happen to have a Garmin beanbag mount sitting in my garage:- https://buy.garmin.com/en-GB/GB/prod8100.html
    It is brand new and has never been taken out of the box.
    Anybody interested for half price (£10)+ postage?

    Richard.

    I have two Tom-Tom dashboard discs on which I fit a dash-cam and Sat-Nav. They look good and work perfectly. I think even Curry's sell them for around £5.

    I have a Tom Tom and can just get the suction mount to fit under the clipboard so it can be adjusted by either of us, but a suction mount from Garmin should fit too.
