Our take on the Garmin Portable Friction Mount with Pliable Base

by Dominic Devito
Garmin

This portable friction mount from Garmin lets you transport your portable navigator from vehicle to vehicle without the hassle of a windshield mount. It features a no-skid bottom and pliable base which conforms to most dashboards for a custom fit that won't let go. The integrated arm works with all nüvi and zumo models, and folds down for easy storage in your glove compartment, auto console, or luggage. Warranty: 60 days.

Features

Overview: The Garmin Portable Friction Mount (010-11280-00) is designed specifically for Garmin portable navigation devices as a portable alternative to windshield mounts. It has a non-skid silicone bottom and pliable base to keep the mount secure on your dashboard.

Ball Mount: The PFM has a hinged ball mount that fits the ball socket found on the cradle of your GPS navigation unit. Once mounted, you can tilt and swivel your GPS for best visibility.

Note: This unit will only work with Garmin units with the ball socket-type mounts.

Base: The non-skid base has a peel-off cover that should be removed before mounting. For best results, the dashboard should be cleaned and dried prior to installing the mount.

Friction? Mount?

Written By Dis Satisfied, New Orleans, LA on Saturday, December 01, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The "friction mount" for the Garmin GPS must be got to actually hold the thing on the dashboard. Where is the friction? It sticks to nothing -- and there is plenty of acreage for it to try. We went to the moon thirty or forty years ago and there is no way today make something that does not bounce around a plain jane dashboard or that has the advertised base flexibility?

Garmin Portable Friction Mount with Pliable Base

Written By Johnny, Lafayette, LA on Saturday, May 28, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
After looking at various mounts I waited for this one to become available and am glad I did. It is used on a 2008 Volvo S60 and a Chevy Silverado. In spite of the multiple curves of theVolvo dash it works. In the truck it is even easier to position.

Fits Everywhere and No Slippage!

Written By Dennis, Dayton, OH on Sunday, September 20, 2009
 
I had to pass on the "suction cup" holder Garmin supplied with my 265WT Nuvi. It was going to be too hard to transfer it between 2 different makes of cars. This was the replacement.

It fits beautifully on either my "no-dash" Jeep Liberty or my Mazda6's dash. And, it's easy to remove and reposition between the cars. Plus, it doesn't take up a spot on my windshield, which I can't stand seeing in other cars that have the suction cup mount. So, it's a no-brainer purchase.

But, it's a bit pricey, as is its cousin, the Garmin "bean bag" mount. Yet, it works! And, that's all that counts by me.
