GPS Mount

I got tired of cleaning the circles left from the suction cup on my windshield. A piece of lexan, hack saw, and a heat gun cured it. I added a piece of foam under the front edge to stabilize it, and wedged it behind the dash bezel. Cheap and easy, and only a little ugly.

Thanks!
Pics were taken at Shannonville, a road course a few hours east of Toronto. Regional SCCA races.

To avoid having to clean those circles, I mounted my GPS to the right of my rear view mirror and ran the power cable inside the headliner with extensions.... if I remove the GPS, the mount can stay without being a visual obstruction.
