Interesting. I'll have to check that out. My 60csx does not want to stay on the dash using the bean bag thingy from Garmin.

The RAM set-up is all in interchangeable parts ( bases, swivels, and unit mounts). You pick and choose the applicable parts then snap it all together.
Here is the RAM site
RAM Mounting Systems, Inc.
The part number for the U-bolt part is; RAP-B-102-231Z
I saw they do make a mount for the one you have.

It will fit any diameter from 1/2" to 1 1/4"

It swivels and angles pretty much any way you want.

Pretty slick mounting system.

They also make Ipod mounts as well....

Okay finally got my mount installed, perfect place to mount the gps unit. Very close for great viewing.

This is a nice solution, it's the new TomTom One, no antenna required and hard wired into the fuse box....$ 299

It stayed for 4 days before falling off, I picked up an 8x10 piece of clear plexi for a buck fifty at Lowes, cut a 3.5" square piece and with clear silicone stuck it in that spot overnight, works great and TomTom has stayed put ever since.

I like having mine attached to the windshield,or high enough I don't have to lower my head. When I am looking at the GPS, I can keep the road in my peripheral view.

The windshield mount works well too, for Me though a bit of a reach and I like having it out of the direct sunlight, also a minor annoyance to remove every time the windshield sun shade has to go in. What ever works for you is the right thing to do.

The greatest thing about this unit is it talks to you, so having it on the dash really isn't necessary in my opinion, and really don't like it up there for all the world to see, and the heat up there during summer months is gonna cook the thing.

To each is their own.

In the 4th coldest city in the United States heat really isn't an issue.
I remove it when I leave the vehicle (or hide it).
Yes it talks but one has to tell it what to say.

It is a very handy unit though.
