No rings on the windscreen, and it keeps the sat nav lower and so does not obstruct your view of the road in any way.
I have found that driving the car with the sat nav attached to the friction mount perfect in all road conditions it does not move around its perfect. This friction mount should have been standard with the sat nav and Garmin should have stopped supplying the window mount.
There is only one small thing when going over really bumpy roads the sat nav does tend to vibrate/shake slightly but to me that's not a big problem.
Highly recommend the friction mount.
As I was fed up with the device periodically detaching itself whilst driving, I decided to try this product. It is excellent as it holds in place and does not shift despite bends or hills etc.
I can now place the Sat Nav much closer to me giving a greater ability to read the text on screen, easily. Money well spent.

As an hgv driver I cannot have stuff stuck in the field of wipe as It can obscure the view
this sits securley on the dash and the sat nav is secure.
BUt because it is lose fitted on the dash I can also easily grab it to change destination.
Also I can see the sat nav at the right focal length as I can put it at the right distance away ... not at a distance dictated by the screen
Love that it does not slide about
Basically love this
The Garmin sat nav is great but the windscreen mount is just dreadful. It just will not stay put, no matter how well I clean the glass. I tried a stick-on disc from Halfords on the dashboard but it fell off after just a few weeks. Fed up, I turned to Amazon and decided to give this a try.
I have been using this friction mount in my Astra for a few weeks now and it just doesn’t move, even when cornering or braking hard. I can easily move it (satnav attached) into the footwell, where its practically invisible, if I’m leaving the car unattended. Or I can remove the satnav, put the mount in the footwell and put the satnav in the glove box if I want them

EDIT > I ended up putting the 5100 in the pocket with the screen facing the mesh. My phone, in its leather case, went in the bottom section, ensuring the flap faced down, away from the sat nav. This worked perfectly, with the phone actually providing additional protection for the sat nav screen.
Some people are saying this case is larger than needed but it's actually perfect for my needs, because I can also put in my phone (Samsung S5 Neo) which is in a leather case. (I have a work phone and don't want to carry two phones while I'm doing work, but I do want to keep it
I have had this case for approx. 18 months and it shows no real signs of wear and tear even though it is used throughout the week, the zipper still functions perfectly, all in all a great piece of kit, especially for the price.

It's a hard case but the external finish is a very aesthetic material.
The case unzips and folds out into top and bottom halves. The bottom half contains an elasticated "net" which extends most of the way across this half of the case. Ideal for storing the USB data/charging lead and the power adaptor.
The top half is where the sat nav unit goes, held in place with a couple of elastic straps.The inside of the "lid" is lined with a very soft material to protect the screen. There is also a hinged "divider" separating the two halves of the case, also finished in a soft material to protect the contents.
A clip on wrist strap is included with the case too. Nice touch..........
There seems to have been a lot of comments about the case not being tall enough to
phone charger (5”), cigarette lighter charger connector, Bluetooth ear piece and 3 charging cables. I hope the smell doesn’t relate to anything damp that might mould on the case hence, airing it first to be sure my equipment doesn’t get damaged. Otherwise, the case seems quite robust and good value for money. It’s deeper than expected, so not as compact as needed for my laptop bag. Will update after some usage.

With reference to the item itself the base measures 20cm wide by 17cm long and you really need a dashboard area of at least that size which is relatively flat and positioned within the drivers viewing angle to fit it. For me driving a VW Touran it works very well and allows the GPS to be positioned much closer to my driving view whilst at the same time not obstructing the windscreen at all. It comes with a little plastic hook which can be stuck to the dash board but I have found the weight of the device and the soft feel of the base means that this is not necessary. In any case if a tie was necessary that could

My sat nav mount doesn't fold down and so doesn't fit in any case, so I didn't want a case twice the depth of my satnav, as it would take up excess space.
Because my satnav is 5" there's a bit of room around the side, which is enough to fit in the connecting wire. Also a nice touch to have the plastic slots of SD cards, although I don't use this

I was a bit doubtful that this would stay in place on the dash in everyday normal driving, no worries, never moved at all.
Now we dont drive as though we are in a race but we do do an emergency stop and the pad did move here but only by a very small amount.
The pad is very easy to fit, fix your sat nav suction cup to the smooth disc on top of the pad then set the pad down on top of your car dash, its easy to adjust position by just moving it around.
When you have finished using it you just pick it up and take it away, no fiddling trying to remove sat
I just bought another to mount my dash-cam. Much better than wires trailing all over the place around the windscreen etc when using suction mount. Just absolutely brilliant.....highly recommended.
I have just bought a new car and really didn't want to stick a 3M adhesive base for a dash cam onto the new dashboard - the surface of the dashboard was such that the suction cup of a traditional base simply wouldn't attach.
I searched through similar products on Amazon and this one stuck out as having all the qualities I was seeking i.e. slightly bendable yet heavy enough on which to sit a suction base for the camera - I was prepared to gamble the purchase price £6.99 and it paid off.
The GoPro dash cam is most stable on this base even when accelerating, braking & cornering and the appearance suitably matches the car's interior (black).
I am so impressed with the working quality and style that I

Disappointing considering this will be almost £60 in mounts just so I can use the sat nav properly.
It seems like this is a common issue as well if you research online so one would hope TOM TOM would have looked into this defect in their device.
Though this cradle matches the quality of the one that came with the sat nav the problem is that neither one has lasted and I will now have to contact Tomtom once again to report a fault. To clarify the fault, after a while the sat nav receives no charge, you can temporarily fix it by wiggling the wire in the back but eventually it will fail completely.
My rating is not for the cradle itself, though it feels good quality - I know it won't last and deserves a 1 star. My rating is purely because Tomtom don't usually shirk their responsibility and will send a replacement

Only downside of magnetic mounts is if you have wireless charging. you have to be sure to place the metal plate so that it does not impact the wireless charging connectivity. for me that means i had to place the metal plate lower in the case which makes it impossible to mount the phone horizontally. not a deal breaker, just an friendly FYI

Have used it only once since the purchase, but so far I have no complain about it.
In addition the delivery was fast. Good value for money
One thing to note is that it is not a genuine TOMTOM product but works with theirTOMTOM sat nav.
Then again, would you expect to pay such a low price for TOMTOM genuine items? Definitely not.

This little FM transmitter is perfect because it solves 3 problems at once. You get a phone system which allows you to make and receive calls handsfree, and requires no wiring. The device gets its power from yout cigarette lighter.
Second, it can be used as a way of playing music/podcasts on your phone through the car stereo. Simply set the device to an used FM frequency, tune your car radio into the same frequency, play the music file on your phone and get the sound through your car speakers. Granted, its not as crystal clear as using an AUX port and may not be good enough for

I do recommend wetting the pads on these to increase the suction.

I cannot recommend it highly enough!
It is such a simple little thing, but it organises and holds so many of your gadgets and bits and bobs together in the same place. It gave me peace of mind and stopped me from losing anything (my partner, who didnt have one of these, lost his kindle on the plane as he was too busy fiddling around with all the other things he had to pack back into his carry on!).ylus.
I was able to fit my kindle into this (i have the kindle with the keyboard). I also had my ipod, earphones, two chargers (for my phone and ipod), my mobile phone, a pen, pencil, eraser, stylus and there was still room in there for other little bits n bobs! There is also a handy little outer pocket
The case itself has a number of internal mesh dividers that is very handy when it comes to separating certain items to storm them separately. The smaller pockets themselves are perfect for storing smaller items such as memory cards and other batteries for your camera etc. Other compartments are satisfactory for storing USB cables or phone chargers. (Depending on how bulky the plug is)
The case itself doesn't have a particularly hard shell, but is firm enough, and doesn't have adequate padding on the inside to protect your items. Despite this it does give the impression that it will protect its contents reasonably well. It is larger than you expect it to be however it is not large by any means and fits subtly

I had previously used a magnet to attach my phone to the dashboard, but they don't stay stuck for long due to the shape of the dashboard. It's quite big, but don't let that put you off. I no longer need to take my phone case off to mount it.
I'd highly recommend.

The beauty of this model is that it's simple to operate without re -reading the manual every time.
It has all the functions you will probably ever need .....yet it's simple to operate. Reasonable price from an established name
Well unfortunately, the (considerably more expensive) Garmin has spoiled me, it's wireless with a clever mounting system, whereas the Cateye has messy wiring and cable ties all over the place. The Garmin has a backlight, the Cateye doesn't, something that would have been useful in my garage. I could load my Garmin training data onto my pc, with the Cateye that's not possible. The Garmin charges off USB, but lasts for many hours between charges, whereas the Cateye takes

Update 19/08/2017 - Just come back from a week touring around France. This little gem never moved once with a TomTom mounted on top!! really amazed!! Well recommended

It's a bit tight to hold my Tom Tom go 60.I really have to hold fast the case and pull the zip round with some force and to put the lead and charger plug in the front pocket is probably a no no but I suppose it does the job of keeping the sat nav clean with less chance of getting scratched.
It's not a hard case so be aware if you drop it with your sat nav inside then probably it's a new sat nav.

Very sturdy and holds all the wires and plugs inside.
The mounting bracket won't go in , but that is quite large.
