I actually mount my satnav on the board, using the clip to hold the suction pad.
However, on a previous motorhome I needed to remove the clipboard in order to get cables through to mount the screen for my reversing camera. If I remember correctly you will need to remove the two screws which are visible at the screen end of the recess and then I think there are two more screws accessible through the radio housing enclosure.
Sorry, but it is about 6 years since I did that work, so my memory may not be that good.
Can you just use the clipboard as per my first sentence?
Hi many thanks for your reply, I did consider using the clip but if it is easy to remove the sprung clipboard it would enable the SatNav to sit lower & obscure less of the windscreen. I did undo the two screws as you say but at the time could not find how to remove the stereo unit.
I will try again but if all else fails will do as you say.
Thanks again for the reply, we are getting "Molly" ready for a trip down to Northumberland in a couple of weeks time from the Highlands.
Hi. Use my clipboard to hold a strip of thick Perspex curved to follow the shape of the clip board. A couple of strips of draft uxcluder on the edges so the perspex strip doesn't slide/mark the plastic finish and then mount the sat nav suction cup on the end of that.
End result is the sat nav sits just above the radio, close enough to get both fingers & peepers on it.
For those with dash cams you cam mount it behind the sat nav on the same Perspex strip.
You can push out the pivots from the flap - open it until you can see the pivot rods then remove first those from the sprung prop then second those from the front. It is, however, much easier to remove the complete assembly then replace it once you have done your modifications. This will also allow you to remove the sprung prop from the main (base) assembly. There are 4 screws - the two you can see and two below the radio 'cage'. Pull out the radio, remove its metal mounting cage to reveal two screws angled towards you. Remove these then the two at the front of the assembly which will then simply lift off. Replacement is the reverse of the process.
I only know all this because I've modified mine to hinge from the rear and used the space below for 12v and USB sockets.
