Couldn't get image to work - can anyone help?

Looks good and would buy but Halfords only offer this for reserve and collect. Personally I've no intention of schlepping off to Halfords but still well worth a hot vote.
#3
Tempted by this, anyone have this?

Yes I have this, quite heavy but keeps in place well. Its miles better as it doesn't leave a tell-tale mark on the windscreen. But lets face it most people do probably own a satnav now.

Thanks for that, my sat nav keeps falling off, will probably go for this in that case:)

Lent my SatNav to a family member and they lost the suction-cup so have put one of these on reserve, thanks

just what I need , ordered ... thanks.

It is quite heavy and would really take some shifting if braking hard.

I think you still need the suction pad to attach to this and to set the angle that suits you.

Carley
so the sat nav isn't fixed? could be lethal in an accident if it isn't


Yes, in crash / collision anything not secured will continue moving. So assuming you were travelling forward so would the sat nav along with any people, hand bags, mobile phones etc. that were not secured. However, it is forward of you! Also, a Welsh Police Force was giving these away in a road safety promotion last year.

The reviews do seem very good and say it stays put even if people throw their cars about a bit.

I doubt that! I have never used a sat nav system and I never will. 99% of most peoples journeys are to places they already know (Home / grannies / supermarket) so I really do not see the point in these things. Taxi driver / deliveries - yes, I can see the point but for joe public, no.

Rubbish - Joe public mainly have sat navs. I don't know many people without one

You know that many people that don't know their way home, to work, to family / friends, the supermarket, into town etc without sat nav? It makes me wonder how people ever got from A to B in the past and I pity the future generations that can't get around wihout an electronic device to guide them.
#14
I have one of these. It's very effective and much better than sticking it on the windscreen.

The Satnav shouldn't be placed on it as in the picture. The centre surface is used to stick on the holder which would have previously been stuck on the windscreen. It sticks best if you put a bit of vaseline over the sucker. It holds fast to the dash and doesn't move in the slightest.

Why? The future generations will have even better electronic devices to use.

We've got a garmin sat nav beanbag ( sat nav slides and locks into fixing on top ) and its much better than the old one we had with suction pad, we got ours after going to California, it's illegal there to have a sat nav attached to your windscreen

To get to the same locations you visit week in, week out, year in, year out? Do people really need an electronic device to tell them where to go? Even though my grandparents passed away more than 20 years ago and I haven't been to their house since I could still drive to it now. No maps, no sat nav just my own memory and isn't that what we all do, drive from memory?

For delivery drivers, the emergency services and the like then I can see why these would need them but for normal people that commute to work and the shops, they'll only really be using them on their few journeys (like holidays) where they are going somewhere new. But in these cases, a paper map can suffice. What's next, an iPhone app to guide users to the lavatory in their own house?!

I suspect previous generations said similar things about those new-fangled maps. Why not just ask for directions at a wayside inn or use the stars to navigate?

I suspect the previous comment was correct; most people do have a SatNav these days. Don't assume that most people are like you.

I'm perfectly capable of finding my way to familiar places but when driving in unfamiliar places it's much simpler than stopping to read the map (my partner is an excellent map-reader having studied geology at university but reading in a moving car tends to make her vomit!).

I bought one because it was the same price as renting it for 2 weeks in the US (alnd of course I'd pay any price to prevent the love of my life vomiting) and it was worth every penny right up to the day my window got smashed and it was stolen from under the driver's seat. See, even casual thieves just assume most people have a SatNav (it appears they chose my car because it was parked nearest to the brick that was lying in the gutter). The 5 pack of Aeros in the glove box must've been a bonus for them!

Also setting it to give directions in French helped the kids learn a little French (and helped me stay on the right side if the road). So they're educashonal two!

Oh yeah, back to the post. Looks like a good idea as the new Satnav has a rubbish mount. Alternatively it might stop my phone sliding around the dash - as I hardly use it I've never got around to a bluetooth kit but it seems to work well on speaker phone until I go round a roundabout and I fade out!

I'm guessing you don't have a mobile phone as you prefer to write to people and attach the letter to a pigeon. What are you doing on this website you luddite?

A sat nav may not be needed by you, but some people do travel out of the county they were born in, heck some even have passports now!

I never dreamt that a satnav would be like marmite - love em or hate em.

Anyway, back to the deal I am collecting mine today. These hotukdeals user reviews seem very good:

Might need to be careful with this if you have a TomTom Go series Sat Nav. The short windscreen mount that come with the TomTom may not be long enough for the Sat Nav to clear the edge of the pad, if you know what I mean. That is certainly the case with the similar mat that Lakeland sell, though being a different design this one may be OK.
