It features a robust clamp that works with nearly any air vent, with a spherical knob that fits nüvi portable navigators. You can keep your portable navigator in view and within reach. This mount does not work with 7" navigators. Warranty: 60 days.

GREAT product. Fits perfectly in my BMW and it doesn't move around. Much better than the suction cup mount.
Pros:
Fits well, holds tight, stays put.

Garmin Air Vent Mount (P/N 010-11952-00)

Written By Russ, WA on Wednesday, November 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Mounted it on the far left side dash vent in our '02 Chevy T-Blazer. The "foot" provides good support for the weight of the attached GPS, and stabilizes the unit in the vent fairly well. This location puts the GPS inline with the door pillar, so outside vision is unimpeded, and it's closer to my normal sight line than when viewing the outside mirror! It's a little pricier than some of the other makes, but much more compact and appears to be very well built; you pay a little more, you get a little more.
Pros:
Small, compact size; quality of construction; stability.
Cons:
None. I'll pay an extra $8-10 to make sure my $175 GPS stays exactly where I want it, and avoid the dangerous situation of having to retrieve a broken unit from the floor while driving. If this mount is still performing as well next year as it has so far, I'll update this rating to a "5"!

I just wish the jaws were a little bit longer because they have a little bit of trouble of clipping onto the vents of my Volvo S70

Garmin Air Vent Mount

Written By JimM, Muncy, PA on Tuesday, July 09, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If it fits your vents it seems to work as advertised. Works fine on my 2013 Nissan Altima, but not on my wife's 2012 Altima due to the round air vents. It is quite small and it seems like a lot of money considering it's construction.
Pros:
If it fits your vents it works fine.
Cons:
May not fit all cars depending on air vent construction.

Well engineered, works perfectly.

Used it on '98 S70 & '11 S60. Works great!
Pros:
Very well made.
Cons:
Enough of a premium I'd have to think twice about outfitting the fleet. For now just sharing.

rock solid when mounted & easily installed

Written By BobR, Tucson, AZ on Friday, April 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It installed easily and is smaller than what it appears to be in the photos on the web page. It is rock solid when mounted and far more solid and much easier to mount and dismount than the Arkon GN047 I had been using.

Not universal fit

Written By BobH, New Hampshire on Thursday, April 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Probably a nice item if it would fit. Unfortunately the vent vanes on my 2010 Chrysler minivan are too wide for this device. I have been using an Akro vent mount, but was looking for something less cumbersome to attach and remove. It looked like the Garmin version would fit the bill.

The Garmin mount is grossly overpriced. Crutchfield charges $10 to make a return. So, I debating whether or not its worth the bother.
Pros:
Can't say since I can't use it
Cons:
Not universal Price

Garmin Vent Mount

Written By Captlou, WI on Friday, April 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Seems to work as advertised. Only had it a couple days so can.t make a judgement on the durability. Seems to be made well enuff. Just has to keep the unit in place. A little too much money for a what it does but if it holds up over the long haul it will be worth it.
Pros:
installs in a minute. small footprint so your Garmin appears to hanging by itself.
Cons:
Should be about a 10 dollar item.
