5.0 out of 5 stars great product - solves a problem 29 May 2010
By GM Harlow VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
I bought this for use in our motorhome. The dashboard is sloping so can't put the normal holder on there, and also can't stick the satnav on the windscreen as it would be too far away (touch screen). I stuck it firmly in one of the air vents and it stayed there happily through bumps and miles.
I was a bit surprised when I first saw that I would have to put it together, but this is easier than at first looks. What an ingenious little device!
It probably depends on where the air vents are in your vehicle, but it works great for us.

P.S. One year on, and the inside of the air vents seems to have collapsed! However, the heating/air con still work (phew!). So to position the sat nav, this little gadget is still useful as the prongs can be gripped under the map clip on the dashboard of the motorhome. It is a pity we didn't do that to begin with actually! It is a little far away, and it is a touch screen device so I suppose that was why I originally wanted it nearer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Window suckers gone ! 28 Feb 2011
I have wanted to get rid of those sucker marks on the windscreen and having purchased a new Garmin nuvi 1490 I looked around for alternative mounts. I saw the Arkon dash air vent / vent mount for Garmin Nuvi - GN047. A bit expensive for a few bits of plastic, especially when you add on the postage. I read some of the reviews which were mixed. Wobbly and insecure ? ! I took a chance. All the way to Austria and back including mountain passes. It was a brilliant bit of kit. Fixed (and removed if you want)easily and not a wobble in sight. Just what I wanted and better than an expensive bean bag perched on the dash board. 9 out of 10 (well nothing is perfect ! )

5.0 out of 5 stars Vent Mount 13 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
I purchased this ingenious little device because the windscreen is too far away on my Toyota. I can now use the touchscreen without having to stop first. The standard mount is attached to my MG ZT which I can reach with no problems. The only bugbear is having to keep swapping the cradle. Does anybody sell these separately?

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good 2 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought this device to do away with windscreen suction mount. I tried all ways to secure this mount and thought I had it at one point, but after a quick drive the sat nav ended up pointing south! To try to salvage something from my purchase, I removed the clips and removed the steady brackets with the aid of a junior hacksaw. Now with a flat backplate and a 3m sticky pad, the bracket is now stuck between the air vents and solid as a rock!

2.0 out of 5 stars Clip snapped on 2nd use 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Great idea, as it puts sat - nav in a better position, to read and operate and does not leave those marks on the screen to let the low life know you have a Sat - Nav, but the plastic is too brittle, even in hot weather. Garmin should supply as standard in better quality. Good price through. I've ordered a similar one, hoping it will last longer!

By Mr
Verified Purchase
didn't like this... first of all messe3d up my air slots ( which I like to be able to switch on and off in the vehicle, second of all, it slipped out twice with my heavy garmin handheld in it.... so... marks out of ten only 5

can't say much more than that.. other than I went back to window suction mounts... much more safer when driving even if they are " in your face "

1.0 out of 5 stars Not so good 13 Dec 2012
By GK
Verified Purchase
The clips that latch onto the vents are very low quality and soon soften so they don't hold. The biggest issue with this however is the fact that the ball is too small for the socket and even though I chnaged the socket device this ball is still loose. On the other hand I live the fact that it is compact and is thus not intrusive.

Rapid delivery. Item as expected, but had to adapt it for my ford focus as the air vents in the focus are rounded whereas this item fits horizontal straight vents.
