Default GPS Mounts

I just bought a Magellan 3050T for my S80. Since California state law prohibits using the windshield suction mount, does anyone have a suggestion for a mounting spot or an aftermarket mount that will work?

Thanks

Maybe a velcro on the dash.

Are you looking for a permanent mounting solution or just would velcro work?

I ordered a mount that has a lead weighted rubber base. Should be in next Friday.

Here's a link to it: http://www.gorillagps.com/images/pro...rd_dashmnt.jpg

I thought about using Velcro.

That looks even better.

Yeah, that looks pretty sharp. Let me know how that mount works out for you.

The only thing that bothers me is the LEAD idea. I know it is covered and you wont ever touch it, but the idea is just it is LEAD.

Yeah, I didn't know if you were just refering to the weight of the mount or it really quite literally meant lead.

I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

Just referring to the weight. I'm not sure what they weight it down with. Here's the description of it from Magellan:

"Keep your Magellan RoadMate secure on top of your dash, and easily adjust it for optimal viewing.

Heavy weighted, no-slide construction keeps your unit firmly in place while driving. And there's no need
for drilling, adhesives or mounting hardware."

I design and build leaded stained glass windows. If the weight was lead, wouldn't bother me a bit.
