    Hi and thank you for reading this message

    I've just bought a Snooper venture 8500, for some reason I thought it came with a bracket to attach it to the windscreen, but there was not one in the box

    I've emailed customer service, and awaiting a response.

    Could anyone who's got one of these satnav's advise me if I should have had a bracket.
    Thanking you

    We have the same but without the TV, it does have a bracket & 'sucker' thing.

    I've got this one and mine came with a window bracket plus a flat disc to stick on the dash board,we're just getting use to ours after the s7000.

    Thanks guys for your feedback/assistance. I emailed the manufacturer's and they are emailing me a bracket.
    I don't have a motorhome as yet, but we are renting one after Easter, and consider the purchase of an 8500 good investment, as I have not driven a motorhome before, don't fancy bringing back as a convertible!!!
    Regards

    I have one but I wouldnt 100% rely on the database to avoid low bridges/ narrow roads,
    They are excellent bit of kit but no substitute for the grey matter between your ears (y)
    It's worth updating the map data and the POIs you want before using in earnest,

    I have also just ordered a Phillips map book for additional security safety.

    We use one, but have an 'A' Class so use a bean-bag mount on the top of the dashboard. The sucker on the 8500 sticks to the plain circle in the middle of the bean-bag. Windscreen's too far away to stick anything to it!

    You can find 'em on Amazon.
