Car mount for Oregon 450


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

I love my Garmin Oregon 450 but have to hold it in my hand to navigate in my truck and the wifes car. Could somebody recommend a good mount? I dont know that a windshield mount is what I want/need because the layout in my truck vs. the layout in my wifes car is so different. Is there a good alternative to the windshield, or is that really the way to go?

I use the Garmin windshield mount in various vehicles...works very well. The hear the RAM mount is also very popular; however, I've never used one so I can't comment.

I got one of these,inexpensive and works great. Just couldn't see paying Ram prices just to hold a gps to the windshield.

That looks like a NUVI suction cup mount with the Colorado/Oregon/Dakota clip. I broke my Colorado suction cup mount, popped the clip off and attached it to my Nuvi suction cup. Depending how steep your windshield is, it's a little tight for the Colorado (when positioned for easy viewing the antenna hits the windshield and I have to tilt it down to remove the GPS) but should be fine for an Oregon/Dakota.

I'm surprised no-one's suggested a beanbag mount. Perfect for multiple vehicle situations. I've had one for ages that I've used in numerous vehicles and it's worked perfectly in all of them.

 

The only problem that I know of is getting one for the oregon - maybe it's easier now, but back when I was an early adopter I had to put one together by ordering 2 different parts.

 

I ordered one of these: http://www.thegpsstore.com/Garmin-Automotive-Navigation-Kit-for-62OregonDakota-Series-P1933.aspx and one of these: http://www.thegpsstore.com/Garmin-bean-bag-mounting-base-ONLY-P421.aspx - kind of a pricey combo, but it does exactly what I want, and hides unobtrusively when not needed. Doesn't leave marks on the windshield.
