    Yep.





    Standard Vauxhall SatNav dash, modded to fit the bigger screen.

    Search for Sat Nav and my username you should find out more info.

    Mounted on the steering wheel, could be somewhat interesting driving though!


    Built in dash



    Aussie sat nav



    Or mounted on your dashboard



    Other than that there isn't many other places sat nav could be mounted.

    yea this was the idea - after the police report suggesting not to use sucker mount as theifs look for the ring marks.

    Once again its a mod created by my old man (a-team meets mcguyver) using some metal lying around in his garage stocks. Its all bespoke.

    The mount is attached to a hole that is on the side of the dash (go have a look at yours - there should be a black cap covering it - remove this and theres a metal bar inside with a perfect size bolt hole). The mount is permanently fixed but unseen with door shut. This has to be the correct thickness to fit the gap between dash and door.

    The bar is a super tight fit but with some gentle spinning can be removed and put away. Also theres a fully adjustable bracket on the top which allows the tomtom mount to be attached.

    It looks quality - like bought from shops. Really pleased.

    Follow jam On Twitter
    Have a look Click here

    Then look at this product Click here

    I intend to mount my tomtom into a Satnav console but now I have the tomtom one I have found its too small so now I need to mould my satnav centre console to match it. I'm going to be using bespoke mounts as well.

    The mounts linked above are Brodit solutions. Their website is very good it will tell you where you can mount the tomtom.
    Its a jam thing

    I've just got rid of my MK4 which I had my Sony Ericsson car kit installed and one of these to hold it:



    Don't really need it anymore so we may be able to come to some sort of an arrangement if need be.
