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

However, this simply gets on with logging where you are, how fast you are going, and how far you've travelled. It can upload it easily to Strava (if you're inclined that way), and has a sort-of-navigation function which is useable if you want to follow a new route. Simple, reliable, longer battery life than my iPhone (not saying much...)
Doesn't measure heart rate, cadence, power, cock size or the colour of your jersey. But, why would you...?
It can be used as a navigation tool, but only offers a breadcrumb trail (which I find to be fine) and there's no fancy turn-by-turn instructions. But, with a little creativity, using google maps and a simple conversion tool –– http://bedsforcyclists.co.uk/articles/2014/04/13/how-to-plan-a-route-in-google-maps-and-export-it-to-gpx-your-phone/ –– you can make this splendid device punch well above its weight.
For the money, it's a snap.
- Plan the route in Strava
- Click export and select the Garmin 500 option
- The route will download as a .tcx file
- Plug the Garmin into your computer using the cable
- Find the 'New Files' folder and copy the .tcx file(s) into there
- Unplug the Garmin and next time you switch it on the route(s) will be in there under 'Courses'
One tip - I can't find a way to make the text scroll across, so you can't only read the first dozen or so letters of each route name. I now name the routes much more simply in Strava so I can identify them easily on the Garmin. If you were to write, for example, 'Edinburgh

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.

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

It has a net pouch inside which could be used for a USB lead, but there is no room for the standard USB 12v car charger, which would be too thick to fit without crushing against the Go screen. There is no way the windscreen mount will fit in this case.
There are 4 SD card size storage slots inside the case too, although the Go 6200 uses micro SD size cards which would probably get lost inside the SD sized holders.
I keep a smaller microfibre cleaning cloth in the case too.
If you want a case to hold all your kit then this one would not suit, however I only want to protect my Go in storage and transportation and have other arrangements for the charger etc, so this case suits me fine. I am very pleased
I have returned it, and I'll buy a bigger case. Good old Amazon, best returns policy anywhere (in my limited experience).

Update: fiddled around with it and it does fit OK. Just me being impatient. Just taken the case on a week-long tour of France and it performed very well. Gave extra grip on the unit itself, not to mention colour co-ordinatimg with the rest of my touring set-up. Rating updated accordingly.
There is plenty of room around the mount so I had no issues attaching to the bike. However, although the case is great, the packaging it came in is so over the top. I appreciate that the Edge 1000 is Garmin's top of the range cycle GPS however, a plastic case for around a tenner does not need or warrant such a waste of packaging, after all, mine went straight in the recycling bin!
Great case - stupid packaging!

The case is larger than it needs to be with about 2 cms spare lengthways and 1.5 cms in width. Straps hold the SatNav in place. (The case is probably not large enough for a 6" SatNav.)
The TomTom Go500 has a large separate mount for attaching to the window. It is too bulky to fit into the case, but I would not want it to, as the case would then need to be even larger.
I would give the case 5* if the case was a bit smaller and hence less bulky.
One of my worst purchases on Amazon.

I am very familiar with Garmin's GPS, having had a few in the past. This one is the same dummy friendly device. This time round, even better when you key in the postal code! It works like magic.
The windscreen suction cup / holder and bracket work well, EXCEPT the front clip does not want to stay on the circular 'bracket', and sometimes comes off.
I love the colour screen and the coloured routes.
One downside is that the voice prompt can come a bit too late. Often it says turn left/right when you are already at that point!!!!
Something to fix, perhaps?
Despite what many reviewers say you can actually fit the mount in the case with some thought just a bit tight. Have to first place sat nav so screen is facing down not up to protect it against mount ball-joint pressing on screen.

As a bike computer / data logger, you won't find better. Works brilliantly at high-resolution capturing all the data from the sensors (the Cadence and Speed sensors always connect and return data, but the included chest-strap Heart Rate Monitor took a bit of practice before I got reliable connections - don't ignore the parts of the instructions that tell you to wet the sensor patches first and make sure it's snapped in place securely). Your Strava uploads will be absolutely

If you are after a case JUST for your 5" tom tom and nothing else fancy, this will do the job. It oozes quality and you will not be disappointed. Buy it and if you don't agree you can always return it for free! Thanks amazon! :). If only they paid their fair share of taxes I'd have more respect for this corporate behemoth!

Great design, works perfectly, sticks VERY FIRMLY to almost any smooth surface.
So much better than the original Tom Tom rubbish, which just kept falling off every few miles !
Highly recommended product.

I have also tried the Qstarz BT-Q818XT, and can say that for the application I have been using - the Garmin GLO gets far superior results. This is partly due to the fact that the GLO can utilise the Russian GLONASS system as well as the American satellites - therefore giving much more accurate positional results, but also because the GLO is capable of a higher refresh rate than the QSTARZ product. (I get about 7-8hz with the GLO, 5hz was the best the Qstarz could do while still
The bluetooth link (+ using BlueTooth GPS on Android) works well, and the ability to pinpoint my location in less than a second once connected is a huge improvment. I also like the improved accuracy, and using it to feed a dashboard and GPS tracker when flying makes for some geeky in-flight entertainment (perfectly OK with a phone in flight-mode).
As a carry-case, the 'iGadgitz Black EVA Carrying Hard Case Cover for Olympus DS-40' works well - it doesn't come with one. For a self-contained extended-power solution to stick in a backpack, it fits nicely alongside a 'Power Bank Anker Astro E1' in the ever-useful
For use with the Android phone I needed to use another app, Bluetooth GPS, to provided the virtual GPS interface and change a few settings, Garmin web site details what's needed to be done. The iPad iOS operating system just accepts the Garmin GLO without any issues.
It's fast and accurate and if used on an Android phone/tablet the Bluetooth GPS app lets you see what's going on. It's very sensitive and sitting inside some 5 mars form a window on the ground floor the app indicates within a few seconds that Garmin GLP is finding a lock and shortly afterwards easily and regularly sees 18+ satellites and uses 12. Positional accuracy soon goes below 2-3 mtrs and I've seen it below 2 metres

The actual guide has some strange comments like turn left now when it should be leave the roundabout now. Also it mentions half turns which seem to be slight bends in the road.
Overall I'm very glad I brought the becker map as it intergrats beautifully into the my A class.
But my car came with the great big screen in the middle so I had to use it for more than Radio 2.
The user interface is good but many times I've now heard 'disruption ahead - it has not been possible to find an alternative route'. Whereas the Waze app on my iPhone offers a faster alternative.

The flat base, which the screen rests against, is hard and protective. The curved upper part, which is moulded to accommodate the suction base, is a bit more flexible, but it will certainly do the job of keeping my TomTom safe.
The outer look and feel is very nice black leatherette. The inside is a rather cheap-looking thin fabric. But for this price it's really an excellent buy, and I'm delighted with it.

On a sloping dash top which has been well-polished you might have a problem with movement. However, on my wife's Honda Jazz - which has a sloping top to the dash - it sat perfectly still once we had settled on a good location. My wife has used it many times since and has been delighted with it. The SatNav is a TomTom Start25, which is mounted upside down (the display self-rights) on the flat pad area of the mount.
I guess I will have to go through the process of buying different version until I find one the works in a “Corsa D”

It fits perfectly.
This is an original Garmin bracket and fits my 200 perfectly. I believe this item fits other units too, being universal but i would check with seller first.
This item is supplied with two brackets and enough rubber mounting rings for them both for two sizes of handlebar
the item also came in full Garmin retail box.
Note that if you are buying a main Garmin unit it will have a pair of mounts in the box so you only need these if you want to mount it to more than 2 bikes.
