    Guys just ordered the window mount from the Mountguys.com. I also got the 6 inch ext arm. This should let me mount it very low on the windshield and far enough out to touch it with out shifting my seated position.

    Pics to follow once I have it then a review. I loves me some 10 inch GPS

    I couldnt get mine to preload maps to use on the road. Is there a trick to get it, google maps, to load more than the local area? Would like to preload most of GA or at least the Atlanta area to try it out sometime. Not sure I'm going to spring for the Sprint hotspot from my phone, supposedly some good apps to get around paying but havent looked around and cant get it to connect with the bluetooth trick (samsung transform)

    The ram mount arrived. Took about 10 mins to put it together. Took it out for a drive. Learned a few things and did a small re-adjustment of mount attachment feet.

    Result is a very secure mount. Very well made. Makes Navigation on the SGT 10.1 Very effective. Cool for watching video when the car is stationary.

    Recomended. 8 out of 10. Mounting plate is bulky and ugly so its not a perfect 10

    I think I personally would be too distracted by a screen that big on top of my dash. Do you have a pic of your setup? :)

    No but I will take one. Its actually distracting. You can get the information from the map much faster and be back looking at the road.

    That just seems to big for me to have up on my dashboard. Probably might be a cop attracter to.
