Review : Too Overstuffed to be “Non-Slip”
The Amazon Basics GPS Dashboard Mount is a fine (but common) design, with a decently grippy non-slip bottom surface and a good smooth landing surface for the GPS suction mount. It is the stuffing, or in my case over-stuffing, that is the problem. There is so much stuffing material inside that it puffs out the bottom surface so as to greatly reduce the amount of grippy material that actually touches the dashboard, and at the same time making the shape nearly rigid so that it has problems conforming to the subtle curves of most dashes.
If only they had shown restraint with the last 1/4th of the stuffing.
So, it rides well until you start taking your curves serious – such as a mountain highway or racing to make a left-turn light. Then you are grabbing for a dash-projectile… But, even then, you don’t have to worry about the GPS unit suction cup coming off the large flat smooth mounting surface. You only have to catch the all-in-one piece as it flies across the dash.
