My mobile/sat nav device sits on the passenger seat most of the time. Been married to her for 50 years next year.......and I still haven't found the volume control or the mute button yet :D

ps Photo would be helpful.
Certainly! Besides windshield mounts, people often use vent mounts, dashboard mounts, magnetic mounts, or even phone holders that clip onto the car's air vents. It ultimately depends on personal preference and the design of the car's interior.

A magnetic mount on a piece of plywood or something similar should sit nicely in there with out the need to make any holes etc.

I do find now that having google maps up can be quite a safety benefit especialy in an area I don't know, it shows you topology of the road ahead, any traffic you re likely to encounter and the speed limits.

Don't trust the Speed Limits on Google maps, I was recently travelling the A43 from Northampton to the A1 and the stretch from Corby, to where it crossed the A47, it was very confused as to the correct limit, erroneously showing 50 when it should have been 60 and vice versa. :roll:

yes there are many places it gest it wrong but at least it's something, my modern car does all the reading of speed signs etc but that still gets confused by signs obscured by plants and the ones on the back of trucks, makes you woder what self driving cars will do!
