Frequently Asked Questions
Is 7 inches too big?
No. Actually, 7 inches is rather large for a a sedan or coupe. However, it is just the right size for a pickup truck, van or SUV. I would suggest 5 inches for a regular passenger vehicle.
Will it reroute you if there is an accident or traffic delay?
No. It will allow you to plan your own detour. You must put the detour in manually. Now, Garmin does offer a traffic app but they charge you for it.
Can the suction cup be attached to the windshield as well as the dashboard?
They work on the window but not on the dashboard. My suggestion is to avoid using the suction cups for several reasons. 1 - When it gets bitter cold the spit or whatever you used to mount it freezes and the whole thing falls off the window. 2 - If you plan to remove it after use there is a mark on the window that advertises you have one in the car though with prices falling it's less likely it will be stolen these days. 3 - It is illegal in some states to use a window mount. 4 - The sandbag is more stable and vibrates a lot less.
