So I bought a stand-alone sat-nav for my 2003 X350. Not that the factory sat nav isn’t charming (and strangely functional) but I wanted more. The Garmin (Drivesmart 6i LMT-D) unit I’ve bought is insanely good but has a huge 6.9 inch display and anywhere I stick it on the windscreen it seems to be in the way.
Has anyone been through this and come up with a cunning way to mount such a thing elsewhere without defacing the interior? I can see a perfect spot on the dashboard timber just below and to the left of the air vent (RHD car) but I can’t think how to attach it there without damaging the veneer.
I’ve seen gizmos for mounting your phone that attach to the air vents themselves but I don’t trust them not to damage the vanes - plus this Garmin is quite a bit heavier than the average phone.
