This is an excellent product. Much better than having the Nuvi stuck to your windshield where it blocks your view. This is in the vent....convient and out of the way and you can see the full view of the road.
I did not mind the windshield mount, but hated leaving it in my car to annouce "GPS was here!"
This vent mount is more discrete and closer to driver for viewing/adjusting. Unit mounted to vent easily and solidly, sturdy as a rock. Keeps GPS unit out of sun and cool. Great design....
This item is quite helpful primarily because I do not like to leave the GPS unit in plain site when we leave the vehicle. By using this attachment to the Garmin GPS unit we are able to see the unit easily while driving, and, remove it from site when we park. It fits the a/c air vents on the dash quite well.
Easily clips on to the air vent without putting weight on it. Easy to assemble. Places GPS unit in a great location. Far superior to the dash or window mount.
it was a little aggravating to get it clipped because my vents are half mooned shaped i have a f150 truck.
An inexpensive answer to an alternate place for mounting the Garmin Nuvi. Much better than mounting on the windshield, and with no flat surface to use the alternate method provided by Garmin, it does the job. The only complaint is that it is not as stable as other methods, but it rides pretty good. For the price its a good value.
Works wonderfully ! Good Product for it's price...Comes in Handy on the road
this product works great in my 2009 scion tc
it frees up my windshield from being obscured by the suction cup mount and because its placed over the air conditioning vent you never have to worry about the gps unit over heating.
i bought this mount for my garmin nuvi 755T
only problem i have with this mount is the arms that hold the unit to the air conditioning slots would be better if they were rubber coated
I use this is my Chevy Tahoe; it works pretty well in the vent. It is not very solid, but it is connected to the vents so you can imagine it moves a little side to side but I don’t think it would ever fall off. Well taking it an out over the last 15 months I actually broke the clips that hold it down. I called Akron directly and in 2 minutes the guy I spoke to was mailing me out new clips at no cost. It’s great to see excellent customer service like this. I will consider Akron products every time they are applicable to my application needs.
Not expecting much for an inexpensive item, I was pleasantly surprised when this Vent Mount for my Garmin GPS actually did what it was advertised to do. It's in perfect view and so much better than the suction cup provided by Garmin. When I want to hide my GPS, it is so easy to remove and re-connect as often as necessary and the mount stays "mounted." Highly recommended.
Item shipped on time with no issues. So far it has worked great and has worked out perfect for the wife. Just make sure that you have vents with the horizontal flaps, because I dont think it will fit anything other kind.
I like the ability to have my GPS at the same level as my speedometer. This product allows that by clipping onto the vent. The only drawback is that I don't think it will survive repeated clipping and un-clipping. If you are willing to leave this holder in place, it is a great alternative to the bean-bag style holder.
works excellant on my car, but I have a F150 also and the clips are not long enough to get a secure fit on the air vents of the truck. still works, but have to be a little more careful.
Work's great easy to change to other vehicles.
Could not slide the vent hooks into the Garmin holder. I used a little 3-in-1 oil and let them sit overnight. When I went to slide the vent hooks into the slots the little round ends came off, never was able to use the product.
I used my clip for the first time this past weekend on a trip and it is perfect. i didn't wobble or anything and it was in the perfect spot. I am going to buy one for each car. I love it!
It's a cool product. Now my GPS stays at a place without falling off.
I was looking for something that I could use to attach my GPS to other than my windshield so that I would have a better view. The air vent mount did both and is very easy to attach and release.
Very easy to install on air vents. Keeps the GPS out of the direct sunlight, and the GPS has cool air blowing on it when running the A/C. That has to be good for the GPS circuits. Also, makes the GPS more accessible for looking up information, and viewing the data.
It does what it says. It is easy to assemble and easy to take on and off.
