Finding a suitable spot to secure my Sat Nav on the steep sloping windscreen of my Citroen Picasso was something of a problem, so having read about the Bean Bag, I thought the Arkon Bean Bag Dashboard Weighted Non Skid Friction Mounted CM012 would solve my problem.
Having ordered the product, it arrived within two days, which was first-class service. However, on opening the package, I was immediately aware that this product would not serve my purpose. It was extremely heavy, rigid and not a bean bag in my view. With the curved dashboard of the Picasso, there was no way that the Arkon Bean Bag would solve my problem. First thoughts was to return the product immediately to the dealer and get a refund, but after second thoughts, could I make it "work"? The only position possible was in the corner of the flat small area of the dashboard near the quarter window. As the bean bag is heavy and very rigid, this could well be the answer. The next step, however, was to do a "dummy road test" with plenty of twists and bends to put it through its paces. After the road trial, I am now convinced that I can salvage something from the Arkon Bean Bag, as it held the Tom Tom Sat Nav nicely in place. Advice, however, to those considering purchasing this product, make sure you have a flat surface to accommodate this hefty, rigid bean bag.

The bean bag is inflexible and not well suited to a curved dashboard. Worse still, the central section where you are supposed to attach the active dock is ridged and therefore the suction mount will not grip. A total waste of money.

I have now bought a different one from Halfords (cheaper too) that works perfectly.

I first came across this beanbag when I borrowed one plus the sat nav from my son-in-law. Never having used either I was amazed at how the bag stayed in place even during a hectic B-road detour to get around a closed junction on the A1. I have a Ford C-Max with quite an expanse of flattish dashboard so this product is ideal and doesn't move even as you prod the screen with a finger to operate the sat nav.
I think the reviewer who mentioned ridges on the sucker mount area had failed to remove the plastic film that protects the glass-like finish of the acrylic and this does appear to have bubbles and creases on it on unpacking the bag.
Having now purchased a sat nav of my own, this was the obvious choice for a mount.

Some of the reveiws said this mount was no good and was rigid. Well I use mine on a daily basis in a 44 Tonne truck and it never moves an inch so it gets the thumbs up from me.

Having tried various Tom Tom holders over the years and ending up with the Sat - Nav spending more time in my lap than on the dashboard I am pleased to say that The Arkon Bean Bag has been brilliant. Absolutely trouble free for a fraction of the cost.Even young Jane,who gives me instructions from outer space or somewhere seems much happier in her more secure environment. Don Trivett

I bought this mount for use in hire cars when abroad - when driving some vehicles with a sat nav attached to the windscreen it can be difficult if not impossible to reach the windscreen to control the sat nav or to remove it (especially to remove it discreetly). Note: If you carry it in your hand luggage, airport security will want to look at it!

It's very heavy (about 1Kg) and grips the dash well. I've tried it on curved dash surfaces and it works fine even at precarious angles. I used the mount with a TomTom Go Live 820 Europe and I had no problems attaching and removing the sat nav from the mount. I can't even imagine that I would ever need to use the hook fixing since it is so solid.

The mount looks well made and is very reasonably priced and competitive.

One of the best gadgets I have ever bought. Brilliant!No more suction marks on windscreen and no reason to fiddle to fit connector - just leave connected.
Excellent value for the money.

This product is nicely weighted to stay on the dashboard, and holds the satnav mount well for any length of journey. One of the reviews here says the mounting area is ridged. All I can say is mine certainly is not ridged but smooth as glass. I am delighted with it.
