Garmin Ball Mount

Are you using a suction cup mount? Standalone GPS systems are great, however, the suction cups they come with are not so great. On a particularly hot or cold day, the suction cup could fall off the windshield. Plus, suction cup windshield mounts are illegal in over 70% of U.S. states, so make sure to check and see what is legal in your area.

To avoid breaking the law and being distracted while on the road, we have the solution for you. The Garmin Ball Mount (item #215165) is a custom mount compatible with almost 200 models in the Garmin GPS series. This mount is a replacement for the suction cup that comes with your Garmin. It is also one of our best-selling items.

How to Use a Garmin Ball Mount

The alternative to mounting your GPS on your windshield is to use a dashboard mount. The Garmin Ball Mount is especially easy to use. All you need to do is:

  1. Get a ProClip vehicle-specific mount
  2. Attach it to your dashboard
  3. Screw the ball mount to your vehicle mount
