Title: My first little mod...
Post by: Grandpa17 on October 05, 2019, 08:32:10 pm
I prefer to use a dedicated RV GPS unit rather than the one in the dash.  While trying to decide the best location to mount it I decided that a pocket in the dash would make an ideal location for it.   That location puts it at a nice height without obstructing my view at all and also puts it at a very easy to reach location.   I have a 3D printer so I modeled a mount that would slide right into the pocket.

Excellent!

How's it do on rough roads?  Any looseness and/or does it start to work its way out?

Thanks!
Don

DONC13,

That's a good observation.   Since the pocket has a draft on it and the mount would work its way out I made my part slightly narrower vertically and used a piece of double sided tacky tape on the bottom side.   With that it's staying in nice and tight.    I made the ball the same size as the Garmin ball so it pivots with the same friction and stays put very nice.

And you are selling them/instructions for how much?

For those without a 3D printer go to ProClip.com
