Here is my GPS installation (Garmin nuvi 5000).

Right to the radio? no that's my phone holder. Left to the radio? nope this my Parrot Bluetooth hands free car kit.



Try the wife's sun visor.

This way I have a nice view of it and it's out of sight when not needed. I modified the sun visor to enclose the GPS, I use the sun visor's miror lamp to power it. Like it?

That's really cool. Now you need to do a write-up telling us how you did it.

That's sweet!!! Just out if curiosity??? Why not on the driver side??? Does the weight of it make it fall when you hit bumps? Very nice though!!!!

That's extremely clever. Hopefully looking all the way over there isn't too distracting for ya. But it's nifty.

Was wondering that myself. Kinda hard to see way over there :)

You must be young to see that far over there. :lol:

An easier GPS unit is attached to all married men....your wife. She will tell you where to go and you don't have to take your eyes off the road. Of course, said GPS unit will cost a whole lot more than an electronic version. Also, when unit is not in vehicle, no GPS unless you do a bad thing and call GPS unit through cell phone while driving. Then unit will tell you where to go by explaining with too many words.


:lol:
