It really works! for GPS, Finder and Accessories

Wow! It works really well! I bought a set of suction cups and magnetic mounts and this is the only one that works well with my Garmin DriveAssist. As you may know, the Garmin screen is very prone to cracking when dropped, and suction and magnetic fields don't protect the Garmin...in fact, they put it at greater risk by aligning the device for a higher drop. This weight mat allows me to place the GPS on the dashboard in a spot where it won't slide, stays in place, and is in the perfect spot for…

Pros
  • PORTABLE CAR ACCESSORIES: Easily carry this device from car to car, whether you need it for professional truck driving or on a long trip. When you're done, it's easy to detach and put away so passers-by don't notice your electronics.
Cons
  • Expensive

Holds our radar detector on the dash - love it!

This product solved that problem for us. Our new radar detector is slightly rounded at the bottom and the anti-slip pads don't keep it in place - it keeps sliding across the dashboard. We didn't want to put it on the window because it's too far to reach and the suction cups don't hold well. We were looking for something that works, found this product and it works great! It sits on the dashboard like a beanbag and together with a few small non-slip pads keeps the radar detector within reach…

Pros
  • CASE BODY AND NON-SLIP PADS: The padded case follows the contours of the dashboard even on uneven or textured surfaces, while the non-slip bottom keeps the device in place even in tight turns. It is compatible with the factory mounts sold with most smartphones and GPS devices, and the mat can hold devices weighing up to 1 pound.
Cons
  • Reliability

There were doubts when ordering, but I'm very glad I bought this.

Yes, Garmin can be stuck to glass, but removing and re-attaching is painful. When I park my car with this little pillow and don't want to leave the Garmin in sight, I just put the pillow and Garmin on the ground. Then put it back when I'm ready to use it. It is so easy. It is very practical and now that I have this mat I use Garmin a lot more. My friend saw it yesterday and asked me to send her the details for the order myself. It's heavier than I thought it would be, but that keeps it from…

Pros
  • One year warranty
Cons
  • Not bad, but...

It works out. Far exceeded my expectations.

I'm having trouble mounting the GPS on my 2017 Dodge Caravan. The windshield was too steep and too far away to reach with a suction cup mount. There's not even room in the dash area (no excuse Dodge didn't put it there, they're on all our other cars) to use a different type of mount. So I decided to give it a try, although it would be sitting on a part of the dashboard that was slightly tilted and felt too slippery. I expected it to slide forward every time I hit the brakes. I was wrong. The…

Pros
  • Portable, packable and anti-theft mounting solution - keep your device out of sight
Cons
  • Some bugs

Great little invention - useful and practical.

pleasantly surprised! I was skeptical when I first looked at this in a plastic container (impossible to open) but once I put it on the dashboard it's an amazing invention! So much better line of sight than with the GPS hanging on the windshield. And this bracket makes it extra easy to remove the entire unit from the dash when I leave the car closed in the summer heat. I have a 2014 Magellan Maestro GPS and it fits perfectly in this strong and durable mount. Just place the entire mount with GPS…

Pros
  • EASY INSTALLATION: All you have to do is wipe the surface of your dashboard to create a clean space for the Nav-Mat - no tools or extra parts required. Nothing disturbs the view through the windshield. This is a great accessory to pair with other Bracketron mounts.
Cons
  • I'll write later

Great product - universal for all makes/models of GPS

This GPS mount is perfect for ANY system. Here's how: It's a free-standing holder with a heavy rim. It has a very smooth, smooth, flat center disc. You simply use the suction cup mount that comes with YOUR specific GPS system, attach it to the center of the disc, and then place the bean bag module wherever you like. The bottom of the device is made of a non-slip material that ensures it fits and stays in place - no matter where you go. Adjusting the desired viewing angle is very easy (again)…

Pros
  • THREAT GPS MOUNT: Nav-Mat provides a solid mounting base to convert your windshield mounted device to a dash mounted device. Carry it to another vehicle and use it to attach a car GPS mount or other device mount hands-free and hassle-free. Disc diameter 3.5
Cons
  • Weak Kit
